Celebrity hairdresser James Brown has apologised for racially abusing TV presenter Ben Douglas at the TV Baftas.
Theatre academy founder Douglas had refrained from naming the stylist, who is close friends with Kate Moss, but James came clean and issued a full apology.
In a statement, he said: "I'd like to make a public apology to Mr Douglas, to his friends and to Bafta for my offensive and stupid comments.
"The simple truth is that I had drunk far too much on the evening and my behaviour was totally unacceptable.
"Everyone who knows me knows I am not racist in any way whatsoever, but this incident has shown me that my drinking is way out of control and I need to take urgent measures to deal with it."
The TV presenter confirmed that the pair had a "full and frank conversation" about what happened.
