A married celebrity who allegedly took part in a threesome has applied to the Supreme Court to try to stop his name being reported in England and Wales.
The Supreme Court confirmed it has received an application for permission to appeal from a man known as “PJS”.
On Monday, the Court of Appeal lifted an injunction banning the media in England and Wales from reporting the identity of the celebrity.
But it said the celebrity still could not be named pending a possible appeal.
Judges gave the man until 10:00BST this morning to apply to take the case to the UK Supreme Court.
In the ruling, they said there must be no publication leading to disclosure of the celebrity’s identity before 13:00 BST on Wednesday.
