Unbelievably, Leslie Ash has been awarded £5 million compensation after contracting the MSSA (not MRSA as most of the tabloids are reporting) superbug whilst being treated in hospital for a collapsed lung in 2oo4 brought on, she claimed, by a particularly energetic sex session with her footballer husband.
The size of the compensation, which was ten times what was predicted is supposed to reflect her loss of earnings. £5million? She was hospitalised in 2004. In the four years before that she only had four acting jobs. Given her disastrous plastic surgerey how did her lawyers manage to persuade the judge that offers of work would have flooded in over the coming years? If you were a TV producer would you hire a woman who looks like this? Good grief!
