Sir Paul McCartney has ditched his trademark thumbs-up gesture - because he is fed up of the constant ridicule the action has attracted. The former Beatle has been using the classic gesture for over 40 years, but now insists he's a thumbs-free zone. He says, "I have been chastened by world opinion on that and you will not actually see me do it. "I'm from Liverpool (England) and a lot of people will do a thumbs-up. Also I am optimistic and want to remain optimistic. It seems natural to me."

Dear sweet Paul - you can do thumbs up, thumbs down, wave hello goodbye, blow kisses, jump up and click your heels together - anything you want! You are the MAN - and a very good one at that! The people who love you know that, and we'll be glad to see any gesture you want to make! Right now we'd all like to see you shoot your middle finger at Heather!
