Rod Stewart says sorry
SIR Rod Stewart has had to apologise after he was filmed appearing to re-enact an Isil-style beheading while in the desert.
A video of the 72-year-old rocker was posted on his wife Penny Lancaster’s Instagram account.
The clip, later deleted, showed the couple and their friends while on his world tour.
He said: “From re-enacting the Beatles’ Abbey Road crossing to spontaneously playing out Game Of Thrones, we were simply larking about pre-show.
“Understandably, this has been misinterpreted and I send my deepest apologies to those who have been offended.”
Sir Rod is seen in the video leading a line of friends, with Lancaster at the back, along the sand dunes.
Lancaster, 45, a model, rolls down the dunes, and then stretches out on the sand. Behind her, the Maggie May singer stands and appears to put his hand across the neck of a friend, who is sitting in front of him. – The Telegraph
