Did you know that musical superstar Sir Elton John once filmed a hit music video in Doncaster?

The self-styled Rocket Man chose our town more than twenty years ago when he was coming up with a video for his 1995 song Made In England.

The single, an ode to England and all things English, features brief glimpses of Doncaster Minster and Hyde Park - where video makers filmed two elderly women gossiping over a wall in Elmfield Road as well as capturing the pair dancing in the street for the song.

The video also shows Sir Elton's face super-imposed onto a former Doncaster town centre pub entitled The Queen - a cheeky nod to the star's sexuality.

The pub, on the corner of Sunny Bar and the Market Place, later became a Polish restaurant and bar.

See if you can spot Donny in the video for the song which reached number 18 more than 21 years ago.

Sir Elton of course also famously played at the Keepmoat Stadium in 2008, performing an outdoor concert which included hits such as Tiny Dancer, Crocodile Rock, Your Song and I'm Still Standing.
