Veteran crooner Tony Bennett ensured Sir Paul McCartney's first dance with Heather Mills was a particularly special moment - he recorded an exclusive song for them.

The BEATLES star contacted Bennett shortly before exchanging marital vows with his wife HEATHER MILLS in 2002 and asked the singer to cover the RAY NOBLE tune THE VERY THOUGHT OF YOU for his wedding reception.

Bennett happily obliged, and remains honoured McCartney singled him out for the privilege.

He says, "When Paul McCartney got married in 2002, he asked me to make a private recording of The Very Thought Of You for his wedding.

"He used it for his first dance at the ceremony, which was a great honour for me."
