Katie Hopkins has admitted she regrets some of the extreme language she used against migrants.

The media personality sparked outrage in April when she wrote a column in The Sun entitled "Rescue boats? I'd use gunships to stop migrants". She wrote: "Show me pictures of coffins, show me bodies floating in water, play violins and show me skinny people looking sad. I still don't care."

Hopkins prides herself on never having apologised for anything she has said.

But in a new interview she admitted: "There's some things which in hindsight you'd probably look to pull out. But I think overall my message isn't about the idea that we want to see people suffering, it's an idea that we need to find solutions to problems."
