An Irish-based blogger is ignoring the "celebrity threesome" injunction, saying: "If you don't want to embarrass your kids, don't do embarrassing things".

The well-known blogger has ignored the injunction, which is halting media from revealing the identity of a man who was involved in an alleged extra-marital threesome.

The married celebrity is alleged to have had a sexual encounter with another couple whilst "splashing around in a paddling pool filled with olive oil".

The order by the London court has come into effect in England and Wales. But the identities of the parties involved have been revealed in the media in Scotland and the US.

The blogger was contacted by lawyers representing the celebrity on Monday, and was asked to remove the article.

But the blogger has argued that his website's servers are in the US, and the article was typed in the Republic of Ireland, so it should not be covered by the injunction.

The blog editor, who lives in Ireland, is now awaiting the results of a fresh legal challenge.

Lawyers for The Sun on Sunday are going to attempt to overturn the injunction in a hearing that will be closed to the press and public.
