Meat Loaf claims to have had an altercation with Prince Andrew in 1987
Meat Loaf once claimed he got into a fight with the Duke of York during the filming of It’s A Royal Knockout in 1987.
The Bat Out Of Hell singer, who has died aged 74, was one of the famous contestants participating in the charity fundraiser at Alton Towers, which featured four teams, each led by a member of the royal family.
The music star has played on the Duchess of York’s team alongside well-known names including fellow singer Chris de Burgh and Alpine ski racer Tamara McKinney.
Speaking to The Guardian in 2003, he alleged he was involved in an argument with Andrew, who suspected him of flirting with his then-wife.
He said, “Oh, the Queen hates me. It was fun. I had a great time.
“Fergie isn’t really flirting with me, but she’s paying attention to me, and I think Andrew is a little bit – I could be wrong, I’m just reading this – I think he’s a little jealous…
“He tried to push me into the water anyway. He tried to push me into the ditch. So I turned around and I grabbed him and he said, ‘You can’t touch me. I’m royalty.’ .”
“I said, ‘You’re trying to push me down the trench, Jack, I don’t care who you are, you’re going into the trench’.”
