Gordon in the morning: Robbie wants to say sorry to Nigel. Again. Sort of.

It's perhaps appropriate that Robbie Williams is using Bizarre to reach out to Nigel Martin-Smith.

After all, it was there, back when Victoria Newton was in charge - a phrase I'm using in its insulting sense - that The Sun had to run a grovelling apology to Martin-Smith (and make a payout) after giving Williams the space to grind his axe back in 2006. Williams, too, apologised in court.

It does make it all a little strange, then, that Smart quotes Williams saying this:

"All I want to do now is throw my arms around him and give him a hug. I want to hear sorry from him, I want to say I'm sorry."
Robbie has already said sorry; in court. And he was saying sorry for making unsubstantiated claims about Martin-Smith. So how come - despite claiming "I don't want to hold any malice towards somebody from my past because that only hurts myself" - Williams is still suggesting Nigel Martin-Smith has something to apologise for?
