Chalk Farm resident Mr Carroll, who twice represented the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest in the 1960s, reached the milestone on Monday (August 18).

He met up with 73-year-old Mr Weiss – better known as “Rainbow George” – in South End Green before celebrating with friends and family at a party in Maida Vale.

Mr Weiss, who gained a measure of notoriety for founding a string of wacky political parties, said he is hoping to get Mr Carroll into the music studio to record some new tracks in his 80th year.

“Ronnie’s a special person,” he said.
