Comedian and One Show host Jason Manford has apologised after it emerged he exchanged racy Twitter messages with a female fan.
The married father-of-two shared private tweets with 22-year-old fan Debra McNamee after she contacted him through the social networking site.
"I can see now that what started out as a bit of messing about and having a laugh on Twitter has been misjudged and I'd like to apologise to anyone that this has offended as that was the last thing I ever intended to do," he said.
The 29-year-old has been married to wife Catherine for three years and had twin daughters in August last year. The couple are expecting their third child, due next month.
