what did gillian taylforth get caught doing with her partner geoff knights?

In 1994, The Sun reported that Gillian Taylforth performed oral sex on her fiance Geoff Knights in their Range Rover while parked on the A1. She later sued The Sun for libel. Taylforth claimed that she was only rubbing Knights' stomach because he was suffering from a pancreatitis attack. The jury apparently did not believe the story and found that The Sun was not guilty. Taylforth had to pay legal costs estimated at £500,000. She collapsed in hysterics when the verdict was read and had to be hospitalized.

Taylor and Knights were in a relationship for 23 years. It was often covered in the media due to his alleged abusive behavior.

Taylforth played Kathy Beale on Eastenders from 1985 to 2000. From 2002-2006, she appeared on Footballers Wives as Jackie Pascoe-Webb. Her most recent acting role was as Sgt. Nikki Wright on The Bill. She is presently a contestant on Celebrity Big Brother 11.

According to the Sunday People, Taylforth has been dating David Fairbairn for six months. Fairbairn was sentenced to 15 years in jail for importing illicit drugs into the country in 2003. He served seven years before he was released.
