'Congratulations' for Cliff as he celebrates 50 years in music

Close pal Cilla Black, who stole the show with her catwalk performance at London Fashion Week on Wednesday, arrived at London's Dorchester Hotel with Reading Football Cub chairman John Madejski to celebrate the Living Doll singer's incredible career.

Opting for a metallic jacket for the party, Cherie Blair received a warm welcome from the star, who has racked up an impressive 14 number ones in his career. TV presenter Gloria Hunniford, Olympian Dame Kelly Holmes and musical partnership Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice were also in the capital for the bash.

In celebration of his half a century making the charts, Cliff released his latest single, Thank You For a Lifetime, which stormed into the number three spot last Sunday, and also brought out his new autobiography, My Life, My Way.
