Michael Gove has apologised "unreservedly" after making a joke about Harvey Weinstein on BBC Radio 4's Today programme.
The environment secretary compared being interviewed by presenter John Humphrys with going into Harvey Weinstein's bedroom.
He added: "You just hope you emerge with your dignity intact."
Mr Gove faced a backlash, including from fellow MPs, before tweeting it had been a "clumsy attempt at humour".
He added: "It wasn't appropriate. I'm sorry and apologise unreservedly."
