I guess that's why they call it the loos - Elton John caught short in London
Elton John was caught short while visiting a London pub as onlookers watched the star dash to the toilets in his tracksuit.
Vistors to the The Rose Pub in New Cross were shocked to see the singer had swapped his Beverly Hills home for a spot of afternoon lunch in their local with his partner David Furnish yesterday.
Rob Agrawal said he saw Elton get up and ask to use the facilities.
He told the Newshopper: "I looked up and a very familiar-looking man walked in.
"He was with a couple of other people - one of them was his partner I think.
"He must have been caught short - he went up to the landlord and asked him if he could use the facilities. I'm not really into celebrities but he's one of the most famous people in the world. I was shocked, completely stunned.
"There was a woman stood near me and I said to her 'that's Elton John'. I think she thought I was mad."
Wearing a black tracksuit with white stripes down the sleeves and shades, Elton then dashed across the bar area to the toilets.
He was later seen by motorists in the area.
Elton, 69, was also spotted with his family cheering on his beloved Watford FC on Sunday.
He was joined by husband David Furnish, 53, and their sons Zachary, five, and Elijah, three, as Watford drew 2-2 with Sunderland at Vicarage Road.
