How old is Cliff Richard?
Sir Cliff Richard, born Harry Rodger Webb, is 80 years of age.
He was born on October 14 1940 in Lucknow, which was then part of British India.
His parents were Rodger Oscar Webb, a manager for a catering contractor that serviced Indian Railways, and Dorothy Marie Dazely.
Following Indian independence in 1948, the family moved from Howrah, near Calcutta to a semi-detached house in Carshalton, Surrey.
How much is Sir Cliff Richard worth?
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Cliff Richard has a net worth of $110million (£84.35million).
In 2016, the icon was worth £58million according to the annual Sunday Times Rich list.
The three-time winner of The Sun's "Male Pop Personality" of the year award came 41st in the list of the UK's 50 richest musicians in 2016.
Englebert Humperdinck (£70m), Gary Barlow (£75m), and Sting (£185m) all came higher.
The list was topped by Sir Paul McCartney who was worth an eye-watering £760million. Sir Paul is now worth £800million, according to the 2020 Sunday Times Rich List.
If the Sunday Times Rich list is correct, Richard's wealth rose by £3million between 2015 and 2016.
Sir Cliff's worth increased after a tour to mark his 75th birthday consisted of six shows at the Royal Albert Hall and another eight gigs in the UK and Ireland.
How many houses does he own?
The 80-year-old sold his £3.5m Berkshire mansion after claiming it was "defiled" by cops.
It is thought he bought another residence nearby.
He also put his £7.5m villa on sale on the eastern Caribbean island of Barbados in 2017.
Cliff also has a New York apartment.
In February 2017 we reported that he was selling off his award-winning vineyard in Portugal.
It was revealed in January 2020 that Sir Cliff put his Barbados mansion, located in the Sugar Hill estate, up for sale for £6.8million.
The property was first listed in December 2017 but the price for the Caribbean retreat was only available on application. It was then taken off the market but was re-advertised last December.
In 2004 Sir Cliff became the joint owner of a 141-bedroom hotel in Manchester.
When he made the purchase it was announced that several rooms in the Arora International Hotel would be Cliff-themed.
What are Sir Cliff Richard's hit songs?
Given Sir Cliff's stellar career, there's plenty of hits to choose from.
He notably sang Congratulations, a song that's become wildly famous as it's associated with birthdays and special occasions – although it's actually about falling in love.
Other huge hits include Living Doll, Summer Holiday, Devil Woman, and We Don't Talk Anymore.
While it wouldn't be Christmas if we didn't hear Sir Cliff's hit song Mistletoe And Wine.
His No1 hits include The Young Ones, Congratulations, Living Doll (with The Young Ones), Saviour's Day and Millennium Prayer, plus many more.
What charity work does Cliff do?
The Living Doll singer is listed as donating money to eight charities, but with his enormous wealth and good nature it is likely he has donated to many more.

Sir Cliff reportedly also gives money to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer & Wellness Centre, Street Child Africa, TEARfund and the Hunger project.
