Paul and Ringo were joined by group of star-studded pals as they celebrated the golden anniversary of their iconic Abbey Road record.

The Abbey Road album is a late-career masterpiece that features not only photographer Iain Macmillan’s iconic, zebra-crossing sleeve, but also some of The Beatles’ most enduring music. 

The Hey Jude hitmaker teamed his evening look with a navy shirt, layered with a cosy cardigan underneath and a pair of dark-coloured chinos.

Meanwhile, businesswoman Nancy, 59, looked seriously chic in an ivory blouse which she wore with a pair of skinny black jeans.

The appearance comes after Gary Barlow has interviewed Paul for BBC Radio 2’s four-day celebration of The Beatles.

And during the chat, the hitmaker reflected on his collaboration with Kanye West four years ago.

‘What happened was I got word that Kanye wanted to work with me. So I just thought, “Well, you know, I love his stuff so, here goes nothing”‘, he told the Take That singer.

‘So we did some secret sessions and we both said if it doesn’t work out we just won’t tell anyone!’

He went on to compare it to when he would write with his former Beatles star John Lennon.

He said: ‘I worked with him and it was a very interesting way of working. It wasn’t two guitars like me and John used to be, this was more cerebral.

‘It was just talking and thinking and me plonking away a little bit. And you record everything and he takes it away and kind of does stuff with it.’

The track Paul and Kanye penned together was called FourFiveSeconds, and also featured Rihanna.
