Meanwhile, Sir Elton has spoken about how he has found fame to be a "curse" after years battling drug and alcohol addictions.

Writing for the World Economic Forum, Elton said: “My essential humanity began to dissolve into an excess of drugs and alcohol.

“Fame, which at first sight looks like a blessing, soon revealed itself as also a curse. I am afraid I reacted very badly. I became a loathsome person – selfish, self-centred, and disconnected.

“That amounts to a painful second lesson, one I learnt by doing it all wrong.”
