Elton John has accidentally shared his obsession with Marmite.
The Tiny Dancer hitmaker, 74, took to Instagram over the weekend to share some sweet snaps from his birthday celebrations and eagle-eyed fans noticed something unusual in the background of one of his posts.
The image saw the music legend beam as he cut into his epic birthday cake during his celebrations at home.
While Elton demanded attention in a colourful Gucci t-shirt and some pink glasses, fans were more concerned with Elton’s gigantic collection of Marmite jars which could be seen in the background.
“Having the best birthday ever with my 3 wonderful boys. What could be better?” the singer captioned the sweet snap.
Fans soon flocked to the comments to point out the Your Song hit-maker’s epic collection.
“Elton John has a tremendous amount of Marmite and I’m a big fan,” quipped one admirer.
“Could Elton John have any more Marmite jars? No, no, he couldn’t it seems,” another echoed.
Meanwhile, the food spread’s official Twitter account took it upon themselves to wish Elton a happy birthday after numerous fans tagged the company on social media.
“Happy Birthday to Marmite lover Sir Elton John,” their post read.
Elton’s birthday bash comes after the singer hit out at the Vatican and accused it of hypocrisy after it declared the Catholic Church cannot bless same-sex unions.
Sir Elton, who married David Furnish in 2014, said the Vatican had invested “millions” in his 2019 biopic Rocketman and accused it of hypocrisy.
The singer took to Instagram to share his thoughts, writing: “How can the Vatican refuse to bless gay marriages because they ‘are sin’, yet happily make a profit from investing millions in Rocketman – a film which celebrates my finding happiness from my marriage to David?? #hypocrisy.”
Rocketman was a critical and commercial success, winning praise for its portrayal of Sir Elton’s homosexuality, with it featuring a sex scene between actors Taron Egerton and Richard Madden.
