Early this week we reported on how former-footballer-turned-boxer Curtis Woodhouse went to extraordinary lengths to put a Twitter user who abused him in his place.
The 32-year-old drove around 70 miles to find the Twitter user 'Jimmyob88' who had been abusing him on the micro blogging site for a number of months.
Now, the 'Twitter troll', a man named James O'Brien has appeared on ITV's Daybreak show with the boxer to apologise after admitting he was "embarrassed" by his actions.
"I honestly don’t know (why I did it)," O'Brien told Daybreak.
"I was silly and childish. Looking back on it, I realise I had done the wrong thing. I can only offer my deepest apologies to anyone I have abused on Twitter. I've let everyone down – friends, family – and I do really feel embarrassed.
"I have done a bit of abuse to other people but like I've said, I've read back my tweets and I feel really silly. What I've done is wrong.
"I've learnt my mistakes and nothing like this will ever happen again."
Woodhouse accepted the apology and the pair shook hands.
"It takes a big man sometimes to say sorry and I've done plenty of daft things in my time, so your apology is accepted it’s not a problem," he said.
Woodhouse also went on to explain why he went to such lengths to confront his abusers.
"If you are in the public eye, I don't think it's right that you should be abused, your family should be abused, your children should be abused, I don't think anyone has got the right to do that.
"I was sat on the sofa with the wife on Monday and the thing is she sometimes uses my account as well and she's seen this abuse and it worries and scares her.
"We don't know who this guy is and some of his threats, I don't know if he's being serious or not. I could see that she was worried and I thought enough is enough, I am going to put a stop to this right now."
