France's centre right presidential candidate, Francois Fillon, has apologised to the French people over accusations he paid his family for fake jobs.

Mr Fillon and his wife have faced lengthy interrogation by police over allegations he fraudulently employed his wife and two children while he was Prime Minister.

The scandal may have already have cost him the election, he's no longer the favourite to win.
