Thanks so much to all of you who’ve emailled and texted me with the news today’s Telegraph has identifed Olivia in the epic saga of Steve Tucker.

Everyone’s tastes will vary, but I reckon it was worth giving it a go.

I am so glad that she didn’t turn out to be orange. Steve obviously isn’t a League player.

I think you’ll find that “public interest” (in the journalistic sense) has been redefined as “something the public would be interested in”.

She had the pics and her name on Facebook and the settings were public. Privacy is not an issue here, she displayed herself to the entire world and she only has herself to blame for any consequences that might have arisen.

If they got it from her Facebook page, then they’ve broken the Copyright Act 1969.

i only believe in gay marriage when both chicks are hot.

I think you’re talking to Waiting for Godot there, not me. I have a sound understanding of how Facebook works, which is why I don’t have my picture on it.

Erg0 I think you need to understand facebook better. I’m sure she would have had her page private and I think she may have even deactivated her account last week as she isn’t listed as one of my friends anymore. You can easily get photos off one of her friend’s profiles even if she isn’t tagged.

“She only has herself to blame”? Do tell, which part of this is she “to blame” for?

It probably would have been smart to take down her Facebook page for a bit just in case, but there wasn’t enough information in the original email to identify her so the journo obviously went to some effort to chase down her last name and photo. I fail to see how the public interest is served in any way by the publication of this information, which will be somewhat detrimental to Olivia personally. This is blatant exploitation of a private individual in order to sell a few papers, which may be expected nowadays but could hardly be called ethical.

Girl smiles at boy. Girl was just being friendly and cant even remember his name. Boy thinks she was coming on to him that he has a chance and is interested, spend all his time chasing her up and daydreaming about her.

happens all the time ?

Steve is a dickhead, pure and simple. His department should have terminated his employment immediately. His actions and their inaction, have caused this girl a great deal of stress and embarrassment.

What if Olivia had a boyfriend or was married? What if she was ‘your other half’ and was now to embarrassed to go out and was copping loads of flack at work, would you not be hunting down Steve to knock six shades of sh*t out of him? I know I would.

To the passion she’d roused in our Steve

Not the outcome he’d tried to achieve

I give the guy credit for following his heart. I give ‘Olivia’ credit for being demure.

+1 and two thumbs up as well.

There’s too many wannabe closet dwelling tin-foil hat wearing butt-plugs here bandying about the ‘stalker’ tag without any real appreciation of what it really means to be ‘stalked’.

Sounds like the enigmatic Johnboy much? LOL

I know Liv and I think this photo is very old. It’s not a particularly nice one, she is much slimmer and prettier in person. Poor thing didn’t want any of this attention!

She (the story with this photo that is) is the top ranked story on News.com, Sunday Telegraph and Herald Sun websites. I certainly hope she makes a civil claim against News Ltd for this. There’s a good chance depending on how similar she looks now to the pic that she’ll have all sorts approaching her after this. And News Ltd has no justification in the “public interest” for going as far as it has. They should pay up and issue an apology for such blatant invasion of privacy. I hope it works out ok for her in any case.

If you look at the SNOG facebook photos there are other photos from the ball. The night that true love (didn’t) blossom!

Looking at the photo above, I take it Steve didn’t have the pleasure of meeting the lass on the right.

Very nice 🙂

This poem left a strong and positive impression on me.

I feel sorry for Olivia – she didn’t want to be dragged into this moron’s 10 seconds of fame and now here we are with these photos – wonder how ‘princess leia’ and ‘hot chick next to Olivia’ are feeling about all of this now? they must be thrilled that the world has decided it’s time they were published all over the place…
