Rock superstar Glenn Hughes has celebrated his friend's 50th birthday in style.

Mr Hughes, the former Deep Purple bassist and singer, attended the birthday party, believed to be that of his long time friend Paul Kemsley - the former vice-chairman of Tottenham Hotspur.

The Cannock-born rocker, who fronted Birmingham heavy metal band Black Sabbath briefly in the 1980s, was at the party with his wife Gabrielle.

The pair took a smiling selfie to share with Mr Hughes's fans on Twitter as they partied on a luxury yacht at the Casino Royale themed bash.

Wearing a tuxedo with a black bow tie, Mr Hughes is pictured smiling through tinted shades alongside his blonde wife, who he has been married to since 2000.

Mr Hughes, who was inducted into the rock and roll hall of fame in 2016, was back in his hometown of Cannock just last month.

He took part in an intimate evening at the town's Premier Suite, featuring a Q&A, live performance and a meet-and-greet for some adoring fans.

It has been a difficult year for the 65-year-old, who lost both his father William and mother Sheila in less than 12 months.

He is currently promoting the fourth record from his band Black Country Communion, which is out on September 22, as well as touring as a solo artist.
