Sir Cliff Richard will celebrate his 70th birthday with a private party and a day off from performing.
The Peter Pan of pop is currently in the middle of a series of birthday gigs at the Royal Albert Hall in London but will not appear tomorrow (Thursday) night.
In an interview to be aired tomorrow, he told Kate Garraway he was happy to mark the milestone with a "quiet night" in.
He told Kate on ITV1's Daybreak: "For the 70th, even when it comes to a birthday party, I'm not going to have a big party on the day. I say I'm going to have a quiet night and what I'm going to do is I've got one of my sisters who lives quite close is going to come over with my niece, my nephew and another niece, and a baby, and her husband, and we're going to have an Indian curry."
Sir Cliff took to the stage of the Royal Albert Hall last night for his first birthday concert complete with a walking frame before launching into a crowd-pleasing set that included hits like Devil Woman and We Don't Talk Anymore.
He will play three more concerts at the venue, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
