Sir Cliff Richard who was knighted in 1995 has been one of Eurovision’s most successful artists. Today it is claimed by Sky News that the ‘Congratulations’ singer’s home in Berkshire in the UK was searched by police.

The singer is currently at his other home in Portugal. The police searched the Eurovision stars home allegedly looking for evidence dating back to a claim made by a then teenage boy in 1985.

The alleged event took place in 1985 with a boy under the age of 16 in the Sheffield area following an event by American evangelist preacher Billy Graham according to Sky News

Sir Cliff Richard made the following statement

“For many months I have been aware of allegations against me of historic impropriety which have been circulating online. The allegations are completely false. Up until now I have chosen not to dignify the false allegations with a response, as it would just give them more oxygen. However, the police attended my apartment in Berkshire today without notice, except, it would appear, to the press.”


“I am not presently in the UK but it goes without saying that I will co-operate fully should the police wish to speak to me.” No arrest was made or sought by the police.

Further investigations are to take place but Sir Cliff Richard claims his innocence.

Cliff Richard came second at Eurovision in 1968 by 1 point with the song ‘Congratulations’ and returned to the contest in 1973 and placed 3rd with ‘Power to all our friends’ where only 6 points separated the top 3 countries.
