Elton John has revealed he’s on a mission to lose some weight before he turns 60 in March.

Elton admitted recently: “I’ve let myself go recently so I’m on a diet and making an effort to exercise.”

He added that giving up his favourite foods for a while will be worth it because he and partner David Furnish have a big plan for the celebrations: “We have a trick up our sleeves for my 60th celebrations which we have been planning for two years. I am really excited about it.”

“The only thing I’m going to tell you is that it has a New York theme.”
