LATEST: The Streets star MIKE SKINNER has written a letter to British pop beauty Rachel Stevens to apologise for frightening her with lustful comments.

Stevens famously said she was terrified of the DRY YOUR EYES singer after he revealed he had a huge crush on the her and wouldn't be responsible for his actions if they met.

Skinner now admits, "I think I scared her a bit because I told someone that FIT BUT YOU KNOW IT is about Rachel Stevens. It got requoted and it made me sound like an absolute animal.

"I'm a genuine ladies' man and I didn't mean to offend you Rachel, and I did apologise. I sent an apology to her management."
