Sir Elton's Joy At Gig Engagement
SIR Elton John shared the spotlight with a happy couple during an appearance on U.K. TV on Friday (29Oct10) after learning they became engaged at his London show on Thursday (28Oct10).
The Rocket Man was being interviewed about his one-off gig for the BBC's Electric Proms concert series on Britain's The One Show when host Alex Jones revealed there was a loved-up pair in the TV studio.
The camera panned to a couple, named as Guy and Erica, and Jones revealed that Guy had proposed to his girlfriend as Sir Elton performed Tiny Dancer onstage at the Roundhouse venue on Thursday.
The singer was delighted by the news, telling Jones and fellow host Chris Evans, "Wow! I think they should come over."
The pair then came on to the set, where Sir Elton congratulated the newly-engaged couple and gave them both a hug before continuing with his interview.
