Sacked Sunday Express theatre critic tells of being told to change star ratings and get free theatre tickets for Desmond
Mark Shenton was sacked by Express Newspapers last December after photographs of him on a gay porn website in the United States were brought to the attention of his employer. He is now suing the publisher for unfair dismissal. Shenton, who is gay, was paid a monthly retainer for writing a weekly column in the Sunday Express between April 2002 and December 2013.
