Disgraced Tory's tears.
He made the revelation during an early-hours drinking session in Glasgow yesterday.
A drinker at the bar in Glasgow's Hilton hotel said: "He was in the bar until quarter to one in the morning talking in a small group.
"At one point, he said he had almost cried in public for the first time as a result of the scandal surrounding him.
"He certainly seemed to like the sound of his own voice, he was doing all the talking.
Nobody else could get a word in edgeways."
Fox is believed to have spent Thursday evening with RAF cadets at the Universities of Glasgow and Strathclyde Air Squadron annual dinner before sipping whisky at the hotel.
He had a long lie and postponed yesterday's meeting by an hour.
The onlooker said: "He asked to smell a Singleton whisky but then opted for a Cragganmore."
