Elton's sorry for his F-word outburst in radio blunder

Elton John was forced to apologise after swearing on air during a breakfast radio show.

The programme's host, Chris Evans, was telling the star that Jools Holland starts the day by playing the piano, when Elton sighed and said: "Oh f****** hell".

The pair both said sorry and the singer then apologised again for saying "that naughty word". Elton also said the long-planned film about his life would be "a kind of fantasy" and compared it to Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge.

It is not the first time guests have turned the air blue during an interview with Evans. The BBC apologised in 2009 after George Michael swore during his radio show.
