Muscletone and wine
Cliff is still a young one at 70
ONCE in every lifetime, comes a look like this ... but only if your name's Cliff Richard.
Now approaching 70, the Peter Pan of Pop reveals the body of a 45-year-old for this October pose in his 2011 calendar.
And it's Congratulations to bachelor boy Sir Cliff on the near-six-pack, put down to a healthy lifestyle punctuated by the odd glass of wine and regular tennis and swimming.
The singer's calendar is revealed as he prepares to release his latest album - Bold As Brass on October 11 - more than half a century after his first one.
An insider said: "We can't believe Cliff will be 70 in October. "Take a look at the guy - he looks no more than 45. Most guys of 30 would be proud to have a physique like that. But he's reaping the rewards of leading a good, moderate lifestyle.
"People in the rock industry used to mock his clean living. Most of them are either bald and fat now. Or dead."
Sir Cliff has little to worry himself grey about. Worth £50 million, he spends most of the year at his mansion in Barbados.
He owns a vineyard in the Algarve and will launch a new sparkling wine to mark his birthday.
And if vintage Cliff continues to look this tasty in the next decade, then we've got something to say:
Son, you'll be a calendar boy and that's the way you'll stay-ay-ay-ay.
The DVD of Cliff's show is out on November 22 and the Official 2011 Cliff Richard Calendar is on sale in all good stationery stores or online at www.danilo.com now.
