Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner has apologised for slamming Take That in 2006.

The frontman branded the boy band "a load of old bollocks" in 2006, but has now taken his insult back.

"We love Gary Barlow," he told NME. "I think I really offended him a few years ago though, which I'm sorry about. I didn't understand it then. Didn't know what was going on, trying to ruffle some feathers."

Arctic Monkeys are on the cover of the new issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands now or available digitally.
