He said that he was “jealous” of the musicians, which also included Craig David, Hans Zimmer, Mabel, Elbow, Sam Ryder, and Diversity, who performed last night.

He said: “I’d love to have been invited to sing a note and just to be in that production.

“The new generation needed to be there. And, hopefully, they’ll be around to sing for Charles. And after that, William.”

Sir Cliff admitted that the likes of him, Paul McCartney, and Tom Jones have to begin to step down from their roles as elder stars.
