Fans of 'well preserved' pop star, Cliff Richard, are reeling today after an extraordinary incident that happened on-stage last night at London's Royal Albert Hall.
Shocked concert goers tell of how the Peter Pan of Pop was half-way through 'wired for sound' when it all kicked off.
Sharon Whelkstall who was in the front row told The Spoof:
"Well it was going lovely when all of a sudden Cliff gave Hank Marvin a funny look and made the 'swivel' sign at him. Hank immediately took off his guitar and fetched Cliff a clip round the ear with it.
Cliff stopped the show and told the audience. That's the last time that f***er's gonna muck that song up. He makes an absolute balls of it every night because he's getting too old for his fingers to be able to do the twiddly bit
Hank then 'stuck one on' Cliff and the next thing, they was rolling about the stage locked in mortal combat" sobbed a tearful Sharon.
The Spoof understands that the management dropped the curtain and the show finished at that point. Neither of the legends was available to speak to us today but Cliff is reported to have told close friends:
"That four-eyed git owes everything to me; well he can go and take a good flying f**k to himself now as far as I'm concerned"
Cliff and his shadow are supposed to be playing another gig tonight at the Albert Hall but at time of going to press we are unable to advise whether it's worth turning up or not.
