Lily Allen has accepted an apology and said everyone should "move on" after her latest online spat.

The Ministry of Defence was dragged into the row when the singer reported a tweet sent to her by a man claiming to be a serving soldier.

It started after the man, named as Harry Wilson, told the singer he had "just seen you bought s**t I meant adopted a child from Africa".

Allen, who is a regular tweeter under her married name lilyrosecooper, reported the comment to the MoD.

But yesterday she told fans: "I have just received some flowers and a hand written apology from Harry Wilson, which I accept. I hope we can all now move on. Thank you."

The Smile singer is no stranger to Twitter rows.

Last year she used the micro-blogging site to snub Piers Morgan's offer to appear on his Life Stories series and she has also clashed online with Cheryl Cole.
