Rod Stewart has revealed that he and Sir Elton John regularly text each other comparing their album sales.

Worldwide success has evidently not dampened the glee of outdoing his old friend as Stewart said that his Another Country album was beating Sir Elton's Wonderful Crazy Night.

Talking about Sir Elton, Stewart said: "We have been in contact with each other a lot lately - emailing each other and bitching everybody out.

"Our albums came out at more or less the same time and we have been comparing how the sales are... I'm winning."

Stewart (71) said: "We text back and forth with each other - how many albums I've sold and how many albums he has sold."
