The 74-year-old singer - who has had nine number one albums and 26 top 10 singles including Maggie May, Handbags and Gladrags, and a cover of Downtown Train by Tom Waits - appeared on The One Show to mark his 50th anniversary as a solo artist.

Mr Davis presented the singer with a Market Deeping Model Railway Club certificate and sweatshirt embroidered with his name.

The display is now due to go on show at the NEC in Birmingham later this week

Earlier this year four 16-year-old boys admitted damaging the display after drinking a bottle of vodka on a "pre-exam night rampage".
