The Court of Appeal will on Monday rule whether the names of the celebrity couple at the centre of a high profile injunction can be named. 

Editors from The Sun on Sunday had applied to lift the gag on newspapers from reporting the identities of ‘PJS’ and ‘YMA’, as they are referred to in court documents.

But following both an open and closed hearing in the Court of Appeal on Friday, judges delayed adjudication on the matter until Monday afternoon.

The Court of Appeal will on Monday rule whether the names of a celebrity couple subject to an injunction can be named 

Documents posted on the Ministry of Justice website show the presiding officials, Lord Justice Jackson, Lady Justice King and Lord Justice Simon, will wait to announce if the celebrities at the centre of the scandal can be named and their injunction rescinded. 

The couple have already been identified in America and Scotland

The decision comes as The Sun on Sunday reported that PJS had been involved in a second affair with a North-American hairdresser in May 2012.

It said the fling had occurred five months after having an extramarital affair with another couple which is subject to a High Court injunction. 

A judge at first rejected an application for a privacy injunction, but the Court of Appeal later upheld the decision stating the story could be "devastating".
