The Beatles are in some ways as together now as they have been since the mid-1990s.

Not only are they continuing their major re-releases and reliving the past with Get Back, last year they even finished off their Last New Song together, the stunning 'Now and Then'.

Surviving Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr are clearly still the best of friends, and we saw that at the weekend when they had an in-person reunion at the Stella McCartney Winter 2024 show during Paris Fashion Week in support of Paul's daughter.

Pictures from the event itself show Paul and his wife Nancy in attendance alongside Ringo and his wife Barbara Bach, as well as snaps of the Beatles with Stella herself, and also Michael Jackson's daughter Paris.

Even better still, video footage from the red carpet show Paul and Ringo turning back the clock with some Beatles-style antics that wouldn't be out of place on footage from the mid-1960s.

As the snappers did their thing, Ringo placed himself in front of Paul and quipped "Don't worry, I'll protect you."

Paul and Ringo are the sole surviving members of the Fab Four of course, following the death of George Harrison in 2001 and murder of John Lennon in 1980.

Over the years since The Beatles split in 1970, they've continued to work together and appear on each others' albums.

The Beatles years will be covered in depth in four separate biopics planned for release in 2027.

All will be directed by Sam Mendes, with each focusing primarily on each of The Beatles.

"The dating cadence of the films, the details of which will be shared closer to release, will be innovative and groundbreaking," we've been promised.
