Celebrities enjoy no extra right to privacy

Murray v Express Newspapers plc and Another

“Where an individual was engaged in innocuous, routine activity in a public place, such as a street, that activity attracted no right or expectation of privacy and, accordingly, there was no prohibition on the taking or publishing of photographs of famous people engaged in such activity in a public place unless there were special circumstances such as harassment or distress caused to the individual.”
