Vernon KayVernon Kay, TV’s most irritating man (okay, it’s a hotly contested category but he’s got to be in the top five – personally Ian Wright gets my vote), has apologised for sending racy texts to five girls including Page 3 model Rhian Sugden.

Kay, who is married to presenter Tess Daly, with whom he has two children said,

“Tess is extremely upset about this and we’re working through it. But in some ways I’m glad this story has come out. It feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.

“I knew it was getting silly. I’m never going to do it again and hopefully I can clear the slate clean and start again. I’m so sorry. I’ve been an idiot and I’ve let my family down.”

“I’ve been stupid and daft but I’m not a sex pest. I’ve only done this with four or five girls and I’ve known them all well – they’ve been friends or work colleagues. I know a single guy can get away with things like that but I’m married and I understand this is off limits.”

To be fair, it’s not like he actually went out there on a serial shagging spree – he’s not Tiger Woods – but it is particularly silly that he sent them in the first place – did he think that the British hound dog press weren’t going to find out?

Be good if it turns up as a question on Family Fortunes though:
