The Sunday People wins the prize for best media mea culpa so far of 2013 with this grovelling apology to Sir Roger Moore. The paper claimed it had landed an exclusive interview with the former James Bond star in an article headlined "I've had Moore women than James Bond" in September. Aside from the half-hearted pun, the paper has now admitted the story was too good to be true. "We now accept that Sir Roger did not give an interview to our reporter and did not make the comments that were reported in the headline," it skulked in an apology. No doubt Sunday People bosses wish it was a case of For Their Eyes Only.
