McCartney's surprise backfire
09:30 27 July 2005
Sir Paul McCartney has revealed how a romantic attempt to surprise his wife Heather Mills went horribly wrong.
The Beatles legend wanted to wow the stunning model by taking her to dinner in a chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce.
But the plan backfired when the driver couldn't get the flash car to start as they left the restaurant - leaving the couple at the mercy of the paparazzi.
Sir Paul revealed: "We went out for a posh dinner and to surprise Heather I hired a chauffeur and a Rolls Royce. We came out and there were paparazzi everywhere and the chauffeur was in a panic because for some reason he couldn't get it started."
Sir Paul also confessed he is besotted with his baby daughter.
He admitted in an interview with Britain's Radio 2: "The truth is we don't really talk much about our daughter because we like to protect her privacy, but she is absolutely edible and I love her."
