Actor wins 'escort girl' injunction

A married actor has secured an extension to his High Court injunction preventing him from being named as having had an affair with an escort girl.

The injunction, involving a man who can be identified only as a "world-famous celebrity" and "leading actor", is among many that have been controversial in recent months.

The judge said the man was "likely to establish that he has a reasonable expectation that... [what] he does in his private life by way of sexual encounters, albeit with a prostitute, should be kept private".
