Elton John has celebrated his 70th birthday with husband David Furnish and Katy Perry at a showbiz party in Los Angeles.

The British singer-songwriter marked his milestone birthday with a joint bash to celebrate his 50-year writing partnership with Bernie Taupin.

Singer Lady Gaga provided the entertainment as she took to the stage for a special performance.

John celebrated his birthday with his children too, and he shared a photograph of himself with his sons Zachary and Elijah preparing to blow out the candles on his cake.

Along with the picture, he wrote: "Birthday bliss."

In a separate social media message, the Rocket Man star showed off a birthday card and wrote: "A huge thank-you to all my Facebook friends for the fabulous birthday card signed by all of you!"

He added: "Sharing my life with you is the greatest gift of all.

"Thank-you for all the love, humanity, joy and happiness you bring to our world. I love you forever. @eltonjohn #HappyBirthdayElton."
