She took to Twitter today to apologise for the old tweets, saying that it was not her intention to offend anyone and that she is now a different person.

She wrote:

The offensive tweets in question, which have since been deleted, made fun of gay men spitting, called an X Factor contestant a "fat chav" and suggested that an unknown woman should "keep her legs shut."

One tweet from seven years ago read:

"I find it funny when gay men spit…it’s like they’re trying to be a bit macho but never works…"

Another said:

"'Why are these clothes so expensive” because they’re designer you tramp, that there in your hand is a dress worth over £2000. Haha."
