Multiple bigamist facing prison

Emily Horne
Emily Horne faces jail again for bigamy

A former glamour model and adult film actress has admitted getting married while still legally wed, for the fifth time.

Emily Jane Horne, 30, from York, will be sentenced at Minshull Street Crown Court in Manchester next month.

No facts were given in court and she was given conditional bail after admitting bigamy.

When she was jailed for six months for the same offence at Ipswich in 2002 she was called "a very predatory female".

Bigamy caution

Ms Horne, who now lives in the West Midlands, left court without comment.

She is believed to have first got married, to a soldier, in York in December 1996, on her 18th birthday.

In 1999 she took husband number two in Leeds and the year after another man in Rotherham became number three.

She was then cautioned for two offences of bigamy by West Yorkshire Police.

But in 2002 she wed again, having failed to get her previous marriages annulled, and was jailed for six months after the case in Ipswich.

Marriage number five came in September 2007 at Chadderton Register Office near Oldham, Greater Manchester.

But on their way to Scotland for the honeymoon she revealed she was already married - and police were called in.

She will be sentenced on 27 July.
