Helen Wood: Footballers pay better than actors
We aren't allowed to know NEJ's real name because he has a super-injunction from the High Court to protect his reputation and family.
The Internet is awash with rumours as to who NEJ is; some people are even suggesting you can work out the identity of the actor from the code letters themselves. All this blog can say is that he has poor taste in ties.
Also topical: former Miss Wales, Big Brother contestant and serial WAG, Imogen Thomas is also on the receiving end of a super-injunction. She had a six-month relationship with a footballer who cannot be named.
Miss Wales: Likes footballers - a lot!
Strictly speaking though these aren't super-injunctions. To count as "super" the injunction has to contain a clause which prevents its existence from being reported. If you know it exists then it's only a regular injunction really.
Some people think a bit of googling will tell you the names of those involved. But think again. Even google has been gagged...
Google: Not telling
But there is a man who knows: Kelvin MacKensie, former editor of the Sun newspaper.
Kelvin MacKensie: Man in the know
MacKensie revealed on Newsnight (BBC2) on the 20th of April that there are currently 29 super-injunctions in effect. That's way more than the newspapers have reported. The High Court has clearly been busy. Of course what we need now is for someone with the complete list of names to set up a website outside the UK and the whole house of cards will come crashing down, which would doubtless be very entertaining for those of us not involved.

Readers are requested not to post suggestions as to who these mysterious super-injunctors are in the comments section, nor links to websites which name them, since this blogger will not be around to delete them until the beginning of May. Your cooperation in this matter is appreciated.)
