The singer, who became famous from his cover version of Walking In The Air from Channel 4’s animated film The Snowman, responded to claims from The Sun newspaper of “inappropriate messages”.

The 46-year-old said he is “deeply sorry” for any upset caused after allegations about his behaviour and strongly denied any “inappropriate contact”.

In a statement, a spokesman for the Welsh star said: “Whilst he accepts that his behaviour over a decade ago was occasionally juvenile, as was that of others, he never intended to harass or distress and he strongly denies any inappropriate contact.
