In Pandora on 16 November it was implied that David Walliams was rude and dismissive to a "partygoer" at a charity event for the Elton John Aids Foundation. We wish to clarify that the "partygoer" concerned was one of our diary reporters. Mr Walliams told the reporter that he was at the event as a guest and was not giving interviews that evening. Furthermore, it was not our intention to imply that that Mr Walliams' behaviour was rude or conceited, and we accept that Mr Walliams, who paid to attend the event, spoke to and posed for photographs with paparazzi and members of the public when requested.
