Anthony Scaramucci, a member of Mr Trump's transition team had told BBC Hardtalk the singer would perform at the ceremony in Washington DC next January.

However, a representative for Sir Elton told the Press Association this is untrue.

Sir Elton was a vocal supporter of Mr Trump's opponent Hillary Clinton, performing at a Los Angeles fundraiser for her just weeks before the election.

At the event Sir Elton reportedly said of Mrs Clinton: "We have to elect this humanitarian - we cannot let this barbarian (Mr Trump) in office."
