Kirstie Allsopp has reportedly received an apology from the Daily Mail after the newspaper published an article critical of her appearance.

The Location, Location, Location presenter had initially challenged editor Paul Dacre to a debate on journalism after a feature on the Daily Mail website said that she "appeared to be sporting a moustache".

Allsopp told Radio 5 Live that she in fact suffered from a hormonal condition not uncommon in new mothers that causes a discolouration of the skin.

She later told the BBC: "I'm not interested in sticking it to the Mail. All I'd say is, you got it wrong this time - back up and pull your socks up."

On her Twitter page, she added: "Proper apology from the Mail, piece off site. As I say to the kids and must stick to myself, once you've said sorry we'll say no more."

A Daily Mail spokesperson confirmed that it had spoken to Allsopp and that the matter had been "resolved".
