George Michael sorry for swearing on Radio 2

George Michael
George Michael is promoting his new Christmas single.

Singer George Michael apologised to BBC Radio 2 listeners after he swore live on Chris Evans's show on Wednesday.

The star, who joined Evans during his drivetime programme as a co-host, "sincerely apologised" for what Evans called "some colourful language".

Believing there would be a delay on his words, Michael swore while talking about BBC Two show Top Gear.

After saying sorry immediately after the event, Evans issued further apologies later in the programme.
