Johnny Depp: What’s next for the star following unsuccessful libel case?

Hollywood actor Johnny Depp has lost his case against The Sun over claims he was violent towards ex-wife Amber Heard.

It follows a three-week trial, in which both sides had their own versions of what happened during their two-year marriage. Three months after the trial, Judge Justice Nicol ruled in a 129-page judgement that the tabloid’s report of allegations were “substantially true”.

So what comes next for Depp? Can his career be saved? And does this open a new door for press freedom?

On this edition of the Sky News Daily podcast, host Bethany Minelle is joined by media and privacy lawyer Steven Heffer to discuss the implications this case will have on the press, and Hollywood expert Ashley Pearson to ask whether either Depp’s or Heard’s reputation can be saved.
