Live Video: Sir Cliff Richard at Kirstenbosh

2007-03-08 15:35
Yes, he's still alive, and we have video footage to prove it. You may even have witnesses, like your mother or your grandmother, who'll back us up. He was here.

Cliff, in case you've never heard of him, is the singer of songs like "Bachelor Boy", "Livin' Lovin' Doll" and many Christmas songs. He's become a Christian, been knighted, been rumoured to be gay (your grandmother refuses to believe it of course) and been rumoured to be straight (most people refuse to believe this, of course). So all the usual pop star stuff. VIDEO

They're so young and pretty now. Who's going to be old and well-preserved in 45 years time - when you're a grandparent perhaps? Who'll set your aging flesh a-trembling?

We found out using a rather geeky but usable online tool called Face Transformer. First, we found some pictures of the cutest current pop shlebs out there today. Then, we transformed them till they were 66 years old - that's Sir Cliff's age in March 2007, by the way.

Some candidates for the Future Sir Cliff awards include: Jesse McCartney, Babyface, James Blunt, Craig David, and (only just making it in) Robbie Williams.
