    Gary Barlow begged Tulisa for forgiveness after his shock attack on the live X Factor show, according to reports.

    Another week, another controversy! On Saturday night Gary Barlow stunned Tulisa (and the nation) when he hit out at her critique of his act Christopher Maloney with a personal attack on her ‘fag ash breath.’

    But it seems like the sheepish judge has tried to make amends for his shocking outburst, with a source telling the Metro newspaper: ‘Gary came to Tulisa’s dressing room after the show and sat for ages apologising to her.

    He knows he was out of line and hugely regretted saying that to her.’

    Another insider also said: ‘Tulisa was really angry but eventually accepted his apology. Gary feels really, really bad about what he said. He was speaking without thinking… in the spur of moment and he didn’t mean it.’

    Although noticeably gobsmacked at the time, Tulisa took the upper hand on Sunday’s show when she proudly placed a nicotine patch in her arm, next to her The Female Boss tattoo.
