Dappy from N-Dubz has issued a late in the day apology for sending those abusive texts to the Radio 1 listener who was critical of the urban pop outfit while they were guesting on the Chris Moyles breakfast show back in January. The apology came as the band reappeared on the nation’s favourite’s prime time show.

The Dapster said: “Listen, I just want to say to everyone, Radio 1 listeners, all the N-Dubz fans, I am terribly, terribly sorry for what has happened recently with this whole text thing. I just want to say I feel empty, look how long N-Dubz haven’t done a Radio 1 interview for. You lot have helped us get to this point where we are today. If it weren’t for you lot we wouldn’t be this high. I just want to say to the young lady that you can come with all your friends, ten friends, to an N-Dubz show front row and it’s all on us. I’m terribly sorry, it won’t happen again. Thank you very much – very sorry”.

As previously reported, Dappy’s abusive texting came as his band were fronting an anti-bullying campaign, part of which was focused on cyber-bulling. The listener, Chloe Moody, had texted into the radio show to say N-Dubz were “losers” and Dappy was “repulsive”. He noted down her mobile number from the Radio 1 text system and SMSed back “Your [sic] gonna die”. Presumably Moody will be thrilled with the offer of free tickets to see a band she thinks are “losers”.
