FORMER EastEnders star Mo George has been awarded £75,000 libel damages over a Sun article which a jury ruled wrongly branded him a woman beater.
The actor's lawyer Ronald Thwaites, QC, told the High Court the article left Mr George depressed and unwilling to go out.
After the case, Mr George, 26, said: "I want to thank all my friends and family who have supported me through all of this."
Publishers News Group Newspapers had denied libel, claimed justification and maintained the article was true.
