Cliff Richard has come out in support of gay marriage.
The 71-year-old singer, who is one of Britain’s best-known Christians, says he sees no reason why gay people should not have marriage equality.
He told BBC Radio 4: “I don’t see why gay people shouldn’t be married. I have got friends, same-sex couples, who have been together for decades. So for them it’s marriage even though they can’t call it marriage.
“It probably isn’t marriage as such because we recognise it as a man and woman and having babies. [But] that’s neither here nor there for me.”
