Veteran singer LULU stopped worrying about the quality of her new album when she heard her friend SIR Elton John regularly played it while he dined at home.

SHOUT star Lulu was relieved to hear her new covers disc, A LITTLE SOUL IN YOUR HEART, went down well with the legendary performer.

Lulu, 56, says, "I sent the album to Elton last week (ends22JUL05) and he put it on as he was sitting down to dinner with his partner David Furnish.

"David says Elton is very fussy about what music is played while they're eating so I suppose that was approval in itself.

"Elton played the album all night while having his tea. I think that means he likes it."
