He said: “I am absolutely devastated if this caused offence to anyone. “The picture was taken 14 years ago en route to a comedy TV shows-themed New Year’s Eve party and a group of us dressed up as characters from the classic TV show ‘Allo ‘Allo.

“Everyone who knows me, knows I am incredibly proud of the efforts of those, including my own grandfather, who fought against the Nazis during the war.” The picture shows Hollywood smiling for a photo with a friend in a pub. His companion is also wearing a military uniform.
