Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson has said he is "horrified" that it sounded as though he used racist language while filming an episode and was "begging your forgiveness" for the fact it appeared he did.
In a video posted on his Twitter account tonight, he said: "When I viewed this footage, I realised that if you listen very carefully with the sound turned right up, it did appear I actually used the word I was trying to obscure."
He added: "Please be assured I did everything in my power to not use that word."
