by, means we’ll only have 10 more chances to see him be­fore he fi­nally re­tires.

What­evs, Wild Horses couldn’t keep me away (un­like a Rolling Stones gig – I can’t stand that song!).

I’ll prob­a­bly go on the Fri­day night, as that’s when the true fans will be there, and be­cause I hear Satur­day nights can be a bit rougher.

I can’t wait, I just hope he doesn’t spoil it by play­ing any of his new stuff – stick to the hits, El­ton!

Of course, me and El­ton go way back. I first met him at Pit­to­drie in 2004 when he was play­ing to a crowd of 26,000 and I was work­ing as a spokesmodel for Ken­tay Cater­ing.

I’d laid down my over-the-shoul­der sell­ing tray back­stage to en­joy a hard-earned cig­a­rette, when he walked past with his en­tourage on his way to the stage. I’ll never for­get what he said to me:

Wise words from a true gent. Ryanair had had a plane seized by the French au­thor­i­ties ower an un­paid bill.

I got around it by telling her I’d been mugged on the wye it to hae it pol­ished at Fin­nies.

I even got my pal, Mick the Pill, to gie me a keeker to mak it look mair au­then­tic. A sair een, but worth it.

I’m nae sure if the man­nie fae Ryanair wid get awa wi that een.

But I’m pretty sure there’d be nae short­age o’ Ryanair pas­sen­gers will­ing to help him try.

Life­style Cor­re­spon­dent Tanya Souter isn’t much of a Do­mes­tic God­dess and so wasn’t keen to start­ing clean­ing houses for other peo­ple – even when she learned that naked clean­ers earn £80 an hour to do so
