England cricketer Ben Stokes has issued an apology to Katie and Harvey Price after a video emerged of the all-rounder appearing to mock the celebrity's son.

Stokes is shown in the video doing an impression of Harvey answering a question posed to him regarding bullies by his mother Katie on TV show Loose Women.

But the Durham star insists it was not his intention to offend either Katie or Harvey and has offered to help them with their petition on online bullying.

“Earlier this year I was a shown a clip of Harvey being asked on Loose Women how he responds to internet trolls," Stokes tweeted.

Stokes is currently under criminal investigation for a separate incident

"I loved Harvey’s directness with his responses - he said what most of us think but perhaps aren’t brave enough to say, let alone on live TV.

"I foolishly attempted to copy the clip after I saw it a few times. I should never have done this and I am so sorry. It was absolutely not my intention to offend Harvey, Katie or anybody else.

"I have written to both Harvey and Katie to say sorry and prior to this offered to meet in person at the end of last month with a view to also getting behind their petition about online bullying. I do hope I can put this right.

"Ben."
