Pink, a fellow guest on the show, had been discussing how the opportunity for her to work with Eminem came about when Stephen Fry - also making an appearance - asked Sir Elton about the influence he had on the rapper.

“He was accused of being homophobic by so many people because of his lyrics, which I thought was nonsense," he explained.

“I came out and supported the fact that he isn’t [homophobic] and I appeared on the Grammys with him, doing ‘Stan’, instead of Dido.

"I was the one who took the ‘L’ out of Dido!”

“We became friends. We’ve been amazing friends ever since. He’s an amazing guy. I interviewed him last week for a magazine."
Prompted by Norton, Sir Elton then revealed the gift Eminem sent to him and partner David Furnish after their marriage.

“When David [Furnish] and I did our civil partnership, I got this package from Eminem. It shows you how homophobic he isn’t.
"It had two diamond-encrusted cock rings on velvet cushions. I have to say, they have remained unused!”
