Whoever runs The Sun's showbiz Twitter feed is in hot-water after a Tweet on Saturday night about X-Factor contestant Tamera Foster's recent shoplifting admission.
The @TheSun_Showbiz account said: "Forget make up, the only way Tamera's going to lose this is if she admits to stealing Maddie".
An apology swiftly followed and Sun editor David Dinsmore is also set to write to the McCanns to apologise.
We would like to say sorry for a tweet that was sent out earlier. It was an inappropriate attempt to make a joke, and we got it wrong.
