The Australian radio show behind the Kate Middleton hoax call prank has been dropped by 2Day FM, who will now broadcast a new show format to replace the slot that was once home to Michael Christian and Mel Greig.
Speaking on chat programme A Current Affair, Mel said: "I've thought about it a million times. I want to reach out to them and just give them a big hug and say 'Sorry'. I hope they're OK. I really do. "There's not a minute that goes by that we don't think about her family and what they must be going through. And the thought we may have played a part in that is gut wrenching." Michael added: "It is nothing more than a tragic turn of events that no one could have predicted and, you know, for the part that we played, we’re obviously incredibly sorry." The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge also released a statement saying that they were "deeply sadded" by the news. An official statement from St James's Palace read: "Their Royal Highnesses were looked after so wonderfully well at all times by everybody at King Edward VII Hospital. Their thoughts and prayers are with Jacintha Saldanha's family, friends and colleagues at this very sad time."
