Daily Star apologises for misleading headline

British tabloid The Daily Star has apologised to Heather Mills, the English charity campaigner and f

The headline seemed to suggest that Mills would be competing against her former husband, singer/songwriter Sir Paul McCartney, on the ITV1 show Dancing on Ice. The headline was actually meant as a reference to the participation of actor Emily Atack, McCartney's second cousin.

The headline falsely implied her appearance on the show was likely to reignite a feud with McCartney.

In the apology, the newspaper reportedly admitted that the headline "may have been taken to mean that Heather was to compete against her former husband Sir Paul McCartney in television's Dancing on Ice". It also added that Sir Paul's second cousin Emily Atack is the competitor, and that Mills is on good terms with her.

The apology was brokered by the Press Complaints Commission, following a complaint from Mills.
