The shamed star issues a public apology to his wife on his Radio One show
The grovelling star said sorry to his family at the start of his broadcast, telling listeners he had made ‘foolish decisions.’
‘I’ve disappointed and let down my family and for that I am very sorry,‘ he said.
And following his radio message, Vern took a rather bizarre route home, jumping out of his taxi on the hard shoulder of the M40 motorway.
He then climbed through the undergrowth to his Buckinghamshire mansion in an effort to avoid waiting paparazzi.
The star went home to his ‘humiliated’ wife Tess, who has cancelled her schedule of television appearances this week.
She had been due on a whistle-stop publicity tour to promote her new book, The Baby Diaries: Memories, Milestones and Misadventures.
‘Tess is taking some time out so we’ve rescheduled her diary. But she will be signing books in due course,’ her spokeswoman said over the weekend.
And despite his latest apology, it seems like Family Fortunes star Vernon still has some making up to do.
‘Tess is still furious with Vern and he has a lot of explaining to do. She hopes that now he has confessed it will be the end of it, but it’s still very painful for her,’ one insider said.
