By all accounts iconic ‘70s rock star Jimi Hendrix and eighteenth century classical composer George Frideric Handel, are pretty dissimilar. But there is a surprising connection between the musical pair: they lived at the same address in Mayfair, London, albeit 209 years apart.

The celebrity old guard was busy anointing its successors at the Isle of Wight Festival this weekend. Fresh from his undignified spat with Sir Patrick Stewart, James Corden found a fan in another ageing knight. Sir Paul McCartney asked the young comic to introduce his slot at the festival, only to find Corden too busy monopolising print and TV World Cup coverage to attend. He recorded a video instead. Elsewhere on the Wight site, our celebrity mole – yes, we have one of those – witnessed Florence Welch's shock at being accosted by Beyonce Knowles, who was keen to inform Flo that she's her biggest fan, and "honoured" to meet her. (Presumably the feeling's mutual.) Finally, Kate Moss flung herself in front of a cameraphone to capture her meeting with Dappy of N-Dubz, who somehow earns himself more mentions in the diary than anyone else. Kate missed the England match to see her favourite hip-hop controversialists play. So she even likes their music.

When Paul Gascoigne was told he would not be playing in the 1998 World Cup, he trashed the room of his manager, Glenn Hoddle. We can safely assume that there were no such tantrums from the mild-mannered Theo Walcott when the Arsenal winger found out that he will not be part of the England squad that will compete in South Africa later this month.
