Edinburgh Castle is offering goblets similar to those used at Elton John’s civil partnership ceremony.

As part of a make over at the castle’s shop, remakes of the cups used when the singer wed his gay partner David Furnish, will form part of a banqueting collection of Scottish food and drink.

Aundrea Hollington, Historic Scotland’s head of retail, told the Scotsman, “After ten years it was time the shop had a more contemporary look. At the same time we wanted to broaden the range of gifts and goods that visitors could buy.”

Meanwhile, Sir Elton has slammed this years Oscars as the “most boring show ever.”

He said: “The Kodak Theatre is absolutely the pits. It’s like the set for The Price is Right. It lacks glamour.”
