A married television star's ex-wife is claiming she had an affair with him after he remarried, it emerged yesterday.

The celebrity, who cannot be named by order of the High Court, denies the claims and has made his own allegations of blackmail.

Mr Justice Tugendhat, sitting in London, said: "It is correct that the claimant is a married TV star and that the defendant is his ex-wife. It is also correct that the defendant has claimed she and he had a sexual affair after the claimant remarried."

Mr Justice Edwards-Stuart first granted the star, referred to as "AMM", a temporary injunction on 21 September restraining his former partner, "HMX", from publishing information he claimed to be private.

Both hearings were held in private.
