Poor H from Steps.

When you share your name with a famous criminal, misunderstandings are sadly inevitable.

It's no surprise the poor guy has decided to take a break from Twitter.

Decided to have a break from twitter... Not sure when I'll be back.. Big Hugs to you all x H x

Let's hope he doesn't see this article on E! Online, then.

Might be time to check your @ replies, @eonline?

I am shocked that, as masters of instant news, @Eonline has not yet amended its extremely libellous mistake. #changethepictureyoupratts

UPDATE (11.04am, 29/11/13): E! Online have apologised. A spokeswoman said:

"E! Online deeply regrets originally publishing an image of Ian H Watkins of the band Steps, rather than Ian Watkins of Lostprophets, and the error was corrected immediately.

"We are investigating the matter and will take appropriate action. Additionally, E! Online has reached out to Ian H Watkins, via his management, to apologise directly."

In a message on his website, the Steps singer said: "Thank you to everyone who has supported me today! My management took swift action to remove my image which was posted due to shoddy journalism."
