The People apologises for lying about Sir Roger Moore interview

Today, The People published an apology to Sir Roger Moore:

On 16 September we published an article headed “I’ve had Moore women than James Bond” which claimed that Sir Roger Moore had recently spoken exclusively to The People and made comments to our journalist about his private life.

We now accept that Sir Roger did not give an interview to our reporter and did not make the comments that were reported in the headline.

We apologise for any distress and embarrassment our article has caused to Sir Roger Moore and we have agreed to pay him damages and legal costs.


  1. Everyone knows these stories are made up by drunken journalists in Fleet Street pubs.

  2. They must have to travel quite a distance to get to those pubs then

  3. I think "admit" would be better than "accept." "Accept" sounds like they were the unwitting recipients of dodgy information, whereas "accept" fits more accurately into "we accept that we made it up."

  4. I mean "admit." Jesus.

    I accept that I screwed that up.
