Following the news that Sir Elton John plans to stop touring, it seemed only right to remember that time he went for a wee in New Cross.

The Tiny Dancer singer was spotted - and photographed - in May 2016 nipping in to The Rose in New Cross Road to use the facilities. Naturally News Shopper led the way in breaking the news before others followed, though we can't claim the best punning headline - that honour goes to the Telegraph's 'I guess that's why they call it the loos'.

But Sir Elton's not the only superstar spotted in otherwise mundane situations in and around south east London - there's Ian McKellen on the DLR, Wills and Kate watching the horses in Greenwich Park and, er, Lethal Bizzle on the Greenwich cable car.
