Justin Timberlake has apologised to his wife Jessica Biel after he was pictured holding hands with a co-star.

The singer and actor was snapped hand-in-hand with Alisha Wainwright while filming the upcoming movie Palmer in New Orleans.

Timberlake, 38, has now apologised to Biel, 37, and insisted nothing happened between him and Wainwright.

He wrote on Instagram: "A few weeks ago I displayed a strong lapse in judgement - but let me be clear - nothing happened between me and my costar."

"I drank way too much that night and I regret my behaviour. I should have known better. This is not the example I want to set for my son. I apologise to my amazing wife and family for putting them through such an embarrassing situation, and I am focused on being the best husband and father I can be.

"This was not that."

Timberlake and Biel tied the knot in October 2012 and share four-year-old son Silas.

He and Wainwright, 30, were drinking at a bar during a break in filming for Palmer last month in New Orleans.

The pair play lovers in the drama, which is directed by Fisher Steven
