SIR Elton John was left confused during LITTLE BRITAIN star Matt Lucas' gay wedding on Sunday (17DEC06) - as he didn't recognise most of the guests.
The ROCKET MAN star admits the pantomime-themed wedding reception after Lucas and KEVIN MAGEE's nuptials was a great idea, even though the lavish costumes rendered his fellow celebrities almost unrecognisable.
But the star believes the party was so successful because it was a British affair.
He says, "The great thing about British people is you say, 'Come as fancy dress' and they always do.
"Americans don't get it. British people really do rise to the occasion.
"I didn't recognise half the people (at the wedding) until they started talking - (British TV host) PAUL O'GRADY, ROGER TAYLOR from Queen... I didn't know them from Adam."
