#superinjunction

Eastenders actor Adam Woodyatt (Ian Beale) carried on a kind of virtual relationship for about a year with a single mother living on disability benefits. The pair only ever met in person on two occasions, in April 2009 at a time when Woodyatt's wife, Beverley Sharp, had briefly left him. Woodyatt made two visits to the woman's home at this time and afterwards the relationship continued via telephone calls, emails, texts and tweets. It ended once the press picked up on events and contacted the woman, who eventually gave the full details to journalists. Woodyatt then confessed all to his wife and together they took out a press injunction to ban any publication of the story or intimate images, emails, texts and tweets that the woman had provided to journalists. The woman had suffered from long term mental health problems and had previously been abused by a male nurse while she was a patient in a mental health institute. The Sunday Mirror had intended to publish an article which gave a view that "Adam Woodyatt took advantage of a vulnerable woman", however this perspective of events was shown in court to be entirely inaccurate. The court documents in fact show that the journalists, solicitors and PR advisers (Max Clifford et al) involved are the ones who would be best described as having taken advantage of the woman.
