A married TV star has won a court gagging order to prevent details of his private life being published.
The celebrity, who has a huge public profile, has obtained an injunction stopping his ex-wife writing about their relationship and claims that they had a sexual affair after he remarried.
Neither the married man nor his ex-wife can be identified, but he becomes the latest figure to use the courts to protect his privacy.
Yesterday, it emerged that another married public figure had won a footballer-style gagging order to hush up his infidelity.
He had claimed it would be ‘very distressing’ if his sexual encounters with a woman, which took place in his home, were revealed.
A High Court judge agreed that it would breach his human rights and granted him an injunction after hearing that the woman was trying to blackmail him by threatening to expose their relationship unless he paid a ‘very substantial sum’ of hush money.
The latest injunction contains the same anonymity provisions which protect the identity of the TV star, raising questions over whether blackmail is involved in this case.
Of course, I don’t need to know and the law says I shouldn’t know either.
But who are these peeps?
I mean, who moves on and then comes back for a nooner with the ex-wife?
