Elton Sends Flowers to Congratulate Conchita Wurst

Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst was sent a bouquet of flowers by Sir Elton John in recognition of the song contest triumph.

The "bearded lady" drag artist revealed he found the floral arrangement from the singer and his partner, David Furnish, in his dressing room as he recorded an interview for the Graham Norton show.

He told BBC1 presenter Norton, in the interview to be screened tonight, that he also received a message from supserstar Cher.

"I was so excited to receive the tweet, which said, 'darling you deserve a lovelier name and better wig'. Cher, THE Cher, tweeted me."

The Austrian, whose real name is Tom Neuwirth, said of his dressing room bouquet: "The card read, 'we love you, Elton and David'."
