The man who reportedly punched Ant McPartlin in the face has said that he is "not sorry" for his actions.

Speaking to the Sun, Ross Hamilton said that he was just "having a joke".

Describing Tuesday's incident, Hamilton said: "I put my arm round Ant and said, 'Where's your girlfriend?'

"I thought he must be used to that. He didn't think it was funny so I pinched his cheek and said, 'You're cute when you get angry.' He didn't like that, then I just gave him a little slap."

Hamilton said that the pair "exchanged verbals" as McPartlin left, adding: "I'm not sorry. He deserved it."

The altercation happened while McPartlin was at a pub in Chiswick watching the Arsenal versus Barcelona football match.

The presenter apparently said that he was "fine" yesterday while filming for Push the Button.
