Sally Morgan Wins Her Fight For Justice

Sally Morgan is overjoyed to have won her libel action against the Daily Mail and to have restored her reputation and professional integrity. After an 18 month investigation into the work that Sally does, the newspaper was forced to make a full apology to Sally and pay her £125,000 in damages; one of the most substantial libel payments in recent history. Sally’s legal team, led by Graham Atkins of Atkins Thomson, and David Sherborne of counsel, describe the victory as an extremely significant result.

The case was concluded at a hearing in the High Court in London on June 20 during which the newspaper withdrew its allegation that Sally cheated her audience at a show in September 2011. Representatives for Associated Newspapers Limited admitted the accusation was untrue and apologised unreservedly to Sally for publishing it. The newspaper also agreed to pay Sally’s legal costs.

Sally is now looking forward to getting on with her life and doing what she does best – displaying her amazing talents to sell-out audiences.

She said: “Almost two years ago an accusation was made against me that questioned my professional integrity and suggested that I had cheated my fans, who I hold very dear. That accusation was totally unfounded and the subsequent fall out has affected me, my family, my career, my health and the good reputation I have built up over many years. It was an unjustified and unfair attack and it has been a very difficult, costly and painful process to get where I am today and to rectify that wrong.

“I bought this libel action against The Daily Mail not to be a spokesperson for mediums and mediumship, nor for financial gain, but for the simple reason of principle. I have done nothing wrong and deserve to have that acknowledged. I have never cheated.

“There will always be sceptics who attack my work and I understand and accept that. However, to libel me and falsely accuse me of a con trick does not constitute rational commentary or debate. I hope now this settlement and apology will repair the damage that has been done.”

While Sally admits that the battle to clear her name has been emotionally draining, she has been overwhelmed by the love and support she has received from her family, friends and fans.

“I would like to thank my family and friends and most of all my fans from the bottom of my heart,” she said. “They have shown me much love and support through these difficult months and the victory is as much for them as it is for me.”

    Dear Sally

    I spent a period of time in litigation and it is emotionally, physically and spiritually draining. I know the relief you are now feeling that this is finally over.

  • Well done Sally I saw you last year and you told me my dad was there for me something I had always questioned but you told me about an event that had happened to me 3 weeks previously which no-one in the world knew about apart from me in which I moaned to my dad `Your never there for me` you told me he wanted me to know he was there for me.
    I did NOT put in a letter or write on social media that I was going to see you.

Well done Sally for taking on the Paparazzi and winning! God bless

  • Pauline king says:

    Dear Sally,
    I am so happy for you that justice has been done. The comfort you bring us with the messages you receive from our lived ones should never be undermined! I have not been lucky enough to receive a message, but live in hope that on one of my visits to see you I will. However, I never leave a show disappointed at not getting a message because the comfort you have brought to other members of the audience is so obvious.

    Keep up the good work, we would miss you desperately if you discontinued doing what you do. Take care, enjoy your holiday and hopefully put it all behind you xxx

  • angie king says:

    dear sally i am new to you but have always been a believer in the afterlife. i always watched john edward on tv and have loved him, i have been to mediams on many occasions and as in everything some are good some are bad and some are just plain cons as sad as that is i have always made up my own mind about people, so when i started watching you on tv a few weeks ago i was amazed by you, but of course then i read the article on the internet when i was trying to find out about your shows, so i watched you again and was very happy that as far as i was concerned you were the real thing, so with the paper having to admit THEY were the cheats NOT YOU, is no surprise to me but well done anyway for your dignity, honesty, and care for us your fans as i now am. i look foward to coming to your show one day , untill then i can watch the amazing psychic sally on tv, with love to you, your new fan angie xx

  • peter Hinchliffe says:

    Was it that the Mail picked up on rumours that people in the theatre were passing on information to her, but reported it as fact? obviously the mail would not be able to prove such a thing had happened so they were culpable of reporting unsubstantiated rumour. They obviously should not have done this- I suppose calling Sally or any other psychic a scam artist or fraud could be a matter of opinion and therefore allowed, but the actual accusation of using earpieces would need to be substantiated.
    Was this what happened Sally?

  • Danielle says:

    Hey Sally congratulations on your victory. You don’t have to prove anything to me and your fans because we know your a genuine lady, kind and honest and funny. Please don’t loose anymore sleep over this my dear. So looking forward to seeing you in Australia on 9th July xoxo Danielle

    Instead of trashing people the Daily Mail should be
    investigating this phenomenon!

  • Sue Colley says:

    Hi Congratulations on winning you case against the paper,I have always believed in psychic,s…and have been to you shows ..although was never lucky enough to get a message….
    It is said that you have received a substantial amount of money from the paper…and as your venue,s are a sellout and you have just returned .( I think ) from Australia would it not be a good idea to donate,the money to a Charity of your choice….as stated you received your solicitors fees. Back … Just a thought ….but we’ll done anyway !…

May I take this opportunity to say thank you so very much.

    My regards

    Phil Thompson

  • Annabel Keen says:

    Congratulations Sally! How dare the Daily Mail accuse you of something that was so untrue. To hear that it happened to you was horrid. I’ve been to one of your shows and watch your programme. I am really pleased you have won the case – you can do your awesome work with peace. I know I am one of many, but I want you to know I’m 100% behind you. Your work is truly amazing. Best wishes to you, John and your family. Xx

  • Wendy Evans says:

    After losing my dad nearly seven years ago, my husband, brother and myself went along to one of Sally`s evenings. My brother placed a note in a glass bowl and Sally took it out. She asked if the letter V meant anything to us, and my brother told her that dad`s name was Ernest, but people called him Vernie. Next,she asked if bridges meant anything, to which my brother replid. I`m a train driver, and dad used to say watch those bridges. She said, `well, he`s saying that now,be careful of the bridges boy`. Dad used to say BOYO. Then she went on to say, `Are your ears burning`, and David said `No`. She said, `Well they should be, he`s standing behind you flicking your ears and laughing. Dad was a practical joker, and always stood behind my brother to flick his ears, then laughed.
    Years before dad died he said that he would knock three times on the door to let me know that he got to heaven. I told him not to knock on my bedroom door or I would be visiting the bathroom, then we both laughed. Dad had only been dead a few days, and I heard three knocks. It was as if someone had taken their keys and knocked on glass, in a way, and rhythm in which dad would have done. I asked my husband to check. There was nobody there. We have had quite a few experiences, and they comfort me, and they have reassured me that life carries on after death. before my taid died he told my mother not to cry for him and that they would meet again. We just need a little faith.

  • Wendy Evans says:

    I would love to have a one to one with Sally in the hope of contacting my dear dad. His cousin died before him, and they were just like brother and sister. the story is a sad one, and I often wondered if she was in fact his half sister. After she lost her only daughter, she left her house down in Watford to my brother and I. It has crossed my mind that maybe she knew more than my dad did. That being the case, her father was a cousin of Lloyd George, prime-minister of Britain, which would then make my brother and I related to a very famous man. Would you know Sally?

    • Hayley Appleby says:

      Hi Wendy,

      Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us all; it is extremely inspiring.

      Unfortunately due to her extensive tour, Sally no longer gives one-to-one readings. We appreciate that although her live shows give an incredible insight into the work of a medium, many people prefer to speak to someone face to face. Sally does have a team of caring readers that are available at a time to suit you. Between them they have years of experience; they are understanding and have given advice and guidance to many. You can find more information about her psychic readers on her website.

      Alternatively you could contact your local spiritualist church who should be able to suggest a local and trusted psychic for you. You can usually find their contact details using an online search engine or by calling directory enquiries.

      Best wishes,

      SMHQ x

  • Steven lee says:

    Such great news sally how dare they make judgement on your career and talent. They wouldn’t like it if you made judgement on them as newspapers and reporters. I just saw live Wednesday 27th November 2013 and I think you are great will deffo come and see you again. Until next time much love xx

  • Dear Sally
    I was sent an txt message Yesterday the 2/1/2014 and when I went to open it–it got deleted I dont know how I managed it–I posted a message on this site in November about seeing you on the 8th of November 2013-and you asked if anyone knew a Sharo or Lorraine–Sharon was my Dahghter and Lorraine was a friend of her’s!–I did not stand up although I wanted to I was so shock’d I could not stand!–I feel Sharon is still trying to talk to me–Plse help me I am broken hearted and there is such an empty space around me we had the same birth sign-Plse help me!–I feel I just want to know why she left me and never said Good bye–I miss her so much–a broken mother–

  • stewart bloomfield says:

    hi sally well done you have a gift and i believe in you btw such a looker too.

  • Catriona says:

    Hi Sally

    Sorry for late reply but well done to you!

    This is a big case, if I were accused of being a liar in my private life I would be horrified. To have to face this in public must have been horrendous.

    You are strong though, I can tell and thank goodness for it!

    Best wishes to you xxx
