Intrepid Wonder World! reporter Jonathan 'Jono' Coleman, is pictured here with singer Elton John on 20 November 1980 at a press event to announce a tour of Australia. 

The event was held at the Sydney Cricket Ground and Jono was there for a Simon Townsend's Wonder World! exclusive interview dressed in a bumble bee costume in the colours of Elton's football team, Watford FC, known as 'the hornets'.

Elton, who happened to have seen Jono on Wonder World! earlier that day, loved the costume. That interview was the first of many chats Jono had with Elton, including several for UK radio and television.

Also pictured in this photograph is entertainer Jeanne Little, famous for her regular segments on daytime television program The Mike Walsh Show. The photo ran in TV Times and TV Week magazines.
