Sarah Harris has issued an apology to actor Elliot Page, after using the wrong pronouns on Wednesday while discussing the star coming out as transgender.

Page had shared a letter to Instagram which said: “I want to share with you that I am trans, my pronouns are he/they and my name is Elliot”.

Harris instantly used the wrong pronouns during the discussion on Studio 10 and then said it was “confusing.”

Oscar-nominated Page, previously known as Ellen, is best known for his roles in Juno, The Umbrella Academy, and Inception, and following their Instagram post was met with outpourings of support.

Harris was immediately criticised for using the wrong pronouns and making a joke out of the star’s coming out, and took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon to apologise, before issuing a formal apology on the show on Thursday morning.

“I need to apologise for my reaction that I had yesterday when we first announced the news about Elliott Page,” Harris said.

“I completely got flustered around the pronouns, and made a joke. That was insensitive, it was a genuine mistake and I am so sorry. It was just a brain snap.

“Lots of people said don’t apologise, but I felt really lousy and I would hate to have anyone feel like I was attacking them in that way.

“It was just a moment. I am really sorry about that and genuinely sorry.

“I like to own my mistakes and it made me feel pretty lousy, so that is my apology.”
