Rod Stewart “sailing” into the record books

Sir Rod Stewart has a new record – he’s the oldest male solo artist to have a UK Number One album.

The 74-year-old singer’s latest hit “You’re In My Heart” raced to the top of the charts.

He’s beaten the last holder – American singer Paul Simon – by three months.


Rod saw off strong competition for the top spot from Robbie Williams and The Who.

Sir Rod said: “A new government and a new number one for Sir Rod.

“Thank you once again to my legions of fans who I will never take for granted.

“Bless you all and a Merry Christmas.

“Well done Robbie, well done Boris, no hard feelings Pete Townshend!”

However, Rod is still a good 23 years off beating the eldest singer to be Number One.

That spot is held by Dame Vera Lynn, who had a hit in 2014 aged 97.
