Some time ago, a businessman received a thank you card from Elton after sending him a specially-designed gay lovespoon for his civil partnership.

Christopher Smith from Llangollen, had sent the lovespoon to the singer and David Furnish.

In return, Smith got a hand-written card from Elton thanking him and wishing him "many years of happiness."

The Welsh custom of giving lovespoons dates back to the 17th Century.

Now the Swansea Evening Post reports that the entertainer could well be presented with another such gift.

When he plays the Liberty Stadium on June 29,  Gower woman is hoping to hand him a lovespoon.

Hilary Thomas had the item carved especially to celebrate Elton and David's partnership.

She said she has been a fan since the early 1970s, admiring both his music and personality.

"I think he is a very nice, generous, genuine man."
