BIG Brother contestant Lesley Sanderson is celebrating after winning her day in court over a newspaper's sex claims.
The 20-year-old from Skelmanthorpe has told of her delight after the Sunday Sport admitted a story about a three-in-a-bed sex romp was untrue.
Lesley, who appeared in Big Brother in 2005, won substantial undisclosed compensation for the "distress and humiliation" caused by the article.
After winning her libel case at London's High Court, Lesley said: "I am very happy with the result and delighted that my name has been cleared of these false, highly damaging and very serious allegations which have proved to be completely unfounded."
The Sunday Sport had said Lesley was in a sex romp with two brothers just hours after meeting them for the first time in a Huddersfield nightclub.
But the brothers later admitted they had made up the story.
A judge at the High Court was told Lesley suffered "huge distress, humiliation and embarrassment" by the article in the Sunday Sport in June last year.
The unfounded allegations were published under the headline: "I roasted Lesley with my big bruv!"
Lesley's solicitor, Miss Hanna Basha, said the article falsely claimed she had picked up two brothers - total strangers to her - in a Huddersfield nightclub and had a three-in-a-bed sex session with them the same night.
Ms Basha added: "The article made various other false allegations of sexual impropriety.
"All the allegations were totally and utterly untrue.
"They were a complete fabrication by the two brothers, which they have subsequently admitted."
However, the solicitor said the newspaper's publishers, Sport Newspapers Ltd, were "regrettably" unaware of this at the time of publication.
Lesley is getting herself back on track after revealing she almost killed herself in cocaine and booze binges.
She became a hate figure after being booted off Big Brother in week two and later claimed the show had ruined her life.
She entered Big Brother wearing a skimpy nurse's outfit.
Within hours viewers saw her topless in the pool.
But it all went sour within a brief time.
Lesley admitted blowing her £15,000 earnings on partying, drugs and booze as she went into a spiral of decline.
Sport Newspapers now accepted there was no truth in the sex allegations. They have published an apology and agreed to pay Lesley compensation and legal costs
