Sir Paul McCartney spotted tipping London busker Charlotte Campbell at Charing Cross Station
Charlotte Campbell was singing outside Charing Cross station when a passer-by stopped to listen to her singing one of her own songs.
It was only when 77-year-old Sir Paul dropped some coins into her case that she looked up and realised the Beatles legend was standing in front of her.
The full-time musician, 30, was “absolutely speechless” at first but managed to utter “thanks Paul” as he turned away.

She then sang one of his hit songs “I want to Hold Your Hand”, to which Sir Paul turned around and gave her a smile and a thumbs up.
“I couldn’t even speak – it ran though my head all the things I could say and all I managed to say was ‘aw thanks Paul’.”
