Radio DJ Pat Sharp has apologised for making an inappropriate joke about a woman's breasts which lost him his Greatest Hits Radio show job.
The 61-year-old broadcaster was sacked from his radio show on Wednesday (March 8) after he left a woman in tears with the harsh joke, which he made at an industry event.
It is understood that Pat was speaking at the Conference News Agency Awards at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre in London when he joked about company boss Lizzy Eaton's boobs in front of around 400 people.

It came after Lizzy was given a T-shirt with Pat's face and famous nineties mullet on it, prompting him to say: "That’s the only way I’ll get on your t**s today."
Pat has now issued an apology to the lady in question, telling her he is "truly sorry" for what he said.
He said: "Last Friday, I made a joke on stage which was not well received. I upset one individual in particular and for that I am truly sorry.
"I apologised at the event to anyone who was offended and I have apologised to the individual personally too."
Greatest Hits Radio has confirmed that Pat's contract was due to expire at the end of March but that he would now "not return to the station with immediate effect."
Lizzy herself has revealed that she feels "sad", "dirty" and "violated" after Pat's public joke at the event.
Taking to social media, she wrote: "Yesterday I was publicly humiliated, in a sexual nature, by the celebrity host of an industry event, on stage in front of 400 of my colleagues and peers.
“Afterwards, I was in complete shock and hadn’t really processed what had happened. Today I am struggling with it – I feel sad, dirty and, frankly, violated.
"I have worked incredibly hard to earn my reputation and hopefully be an inspiration to other young women in the events industry."
According to The Sun, Lizzy tossed the top back at him and stormed out of the ceremony in floods of tears after his ill-judged remarks.
She added: “Yesterday, however, I was belittled, sexualised and objectified in front of hundreds of people I respect.”
Lizzie is reportedly set to “take action” against the radio DJ following the comments made at the Conference News Agency Awards in Central London.
Pat had presented Greatest Hits Radio show since 2019 but shot to fame on the nineties TV show Fun House.
