James Blunt's Final Agony Uncle Column is Something Rather Special

Well played. Or at least, good comeback after you've offended thousands of fans. 

Last week singer James Blunt hit the headlines for a controversial agony uncle column he penned for Metro UK.

In it, the 40-year-old You're Beautiful singer advised one reader to dump his girlfriend because she wasn’t in the mood for sex often enough.

The query read:

Dear James, 

My girlfriend and I are going through a bit of a dry patch. We’ve been together for just over two years and used to make love every day. Now i’m lucky if I get any action once a month. She says she is happy and loves me but is always too tired for sex. What can I do to spice up our sex life?

Josh, Kingston. 

Blunt replied:

Dear Josh, 

A dry patch… He he! Mate – dump her. We’ve got to send a message to girls worldwide that this is just not acceptable.

The advice came just three weeks after Blunt told another reader, "West Mids Boy", who complained about being approached by “mingers” to “either close your eyes, or drink them pretty.”

Neither column fared well with readers, with Blunt slammed for his misogynistic comments.

Today, Blunt has answered another letter from "West Mids Boy" and it appears to be his last.
