Two stars of the British TV show Shameless, David Threlfall (Frank Gallagher) and Pauline McLynn (Libby Croker) had an affair with each other. They are both married. The affair ended once Threlfall's wife, Brana Bajic, found out. Threlfall then told the show's producers that he would rather not have to see McLynn again and that one of them would have to leave the show. The production company, Company Pictures, then obliged him by sacking Pauline McLynn. Pauline was said to be furious about her sacking. The Irish newspaper, The Sunday World, have since published the full story but the press injunction remains in place for the UK.
