Cliff Richard has revealed that a strict diet helps him avoid abrupt interruptions on stage. No, not that. If he fills up ahead of a show without due care he seemingly faces a potentially deadly bout of the burps mid-performance.

“I can’t eat during the day”, he tells The Mirror. “If I eat during the day I spend the whole time on stage burping – it’s absolutely fatal for me”.

Of course, not eating at all before an evening performance might have other side effects. Like fainting. Or a loud rumbling from the stomach. Neither of which would be ideal either.

But don’t worry, when Richard says he doesn’t eat anything before a show, he means he doesn’t eat much. Little and often, that’s what they say, isn’t it? He actually has a specially designed diet for when on tour, based on his blood type and everything, which he says has “worked for me for fifteen years now”.

As for his day-to-day regime when not on tour and less concerned about any subsequent burping (fatal or otherwise), he says: “I can eat three meals a day if I want to. I can’t eat certain foods, which I just leave out. Once every three months I treat myself to a steak”.

Well, that’s nice. I’m glad Cliff still gets steak once in a while. But anyway, these dietary facts explain why you’ve never heard Cliff Richard burp on stage.
