Holly Willoughby has won damages from the Sunday Sport over a fake ‘up-skirt’ picture published on the paper’s front page.
SCROLL DOWN FOR THE ACTUAL PHOTO!
The ‘This Morning’ host was ‘outraged’ when the paper claimed a picture of a woman getting out of a taxi with her bottom and underwear visible was of her, and she swiftly instructed her lawyers to complain to the Press Complaints Commission.
The paper issued a full apology and admitted that the snap was not of Holly on their front page. She has now been awarded a four-figure sum for dropping her legal threat.
In a statement Holly said: “I am delighted that the Sunday Sport has on its front page informed its readers that they were misled about the ‘up-skirt’ picture they published which the paper said was of me, and made a fulsome apology.
“The Sunday Sport also paid me damages along with my legal fees. I am donating my damages to the wonderful charity of which I’m a patron, Together for Short Lives, which at least means that something good has come out of this unpleasant episode.”
