"I'm sorry."

So what were the different ways of saying sorry in the programme?

1) The simple ones. These are just statements on their own:
  • Sorry.
  • I'm sorry.
  • I'm so sorry.
  • I'm really sorry.
2) The classic one: Sorry I'm late.

3) Sorry about (something).
  • Sorry about this
  • Sorry about the damage to your bike
4) Sorry for (doing something). Normally this is followed by a verb in the -ing form.
  • Sorry for losing your bike
  • Sorry for being so smelly
5) Saying sorry without saying sorry – I apologise for...
  • I apologise for calling you an idiot. It wasn't very nice.
