Cliff Richard marks his 75th birthday at Albert Hall

By Lorna Cooper

Veteran pop star Sir Cliff Richard will celebrate turning 75 on Wednesday with a birthday gig at London's Royal Albert Hall.

The singer, actor and TV star has enjoyed a remarkable career spanning an incredible 57 years, but is not slowing down.

Officially Britain's greatest solo hit-maker, his output of 123 hit singles and 101 albums is unlikely to be equalled, let alone surpassed.

Sir Cliff's hits include The Young Ones, Living Doll, Summer Holiday, We Don't Talk Anymore and 1988 Christmas number one, Mistletoe And Wine. Alongside Elvis Presley, the septuagenarian holds the record for featuring in each of the first six decades of the UK Singles Chart (1950s-2000s).
