Sir Cliff speaks about the ex-priest who's shared his life for seven years

The pop veteran was launching his autobiography My Life, My Way, in which he talks about his "companion" John McElynn. The ex-missionary - whom he describes as "my blessing" - has shared his home for the last seven years.

Soon after they got to know each other in New York during one of Cliff's tours the 53-year-old American left the priesthood and began managing the singer's properties.

As he arrived for the signing, the ever-youthful star was greeted by hundreds of well-wishers who'd waited patiently for a chance to meet their hero at the signing in Berkshire.

Speaking about the attitude of fans to the long-running media speculation over his sexuality, the singer commented: "I don't think my fans would care either way."
