As Prime Minister Gordon Brown struggles to recover from a comment he made to an elderly lady on Wednesday, the politican's wife has spoken out in support.
"People may say many things about Gordon, but they cannot say he doesn't care," says sarah, who has made friends with Naomi Campbell and Michelle Obama during her time in the spotlight.
"He phoned me as soon as it happened and was absolutely mortified. He went to see her because he hated the fact he had hurt someone. His apology was from the heart."
