The Beatles broke up over 50 years ago but who was to blame? Paul McCartney was recently asked if it was him, but the 79-year-old was adamant it was John Lennon. He said: “I’m not the person who instigated the split.”

Speaking with BBC Radio 4, Paul said: “John walked into the room one day and said I’m leaving The Beatles and he said ‘It’s quite thrilling, it’s like a divorce.

“And then we were there to pick up the pieces. I didn’t instigate the split. That was our Johnny, coming in one day and saying I’m leaving the group.”

And now Hunter Davies, who wrote The Beatles’ only authorised biography during their career, has backed Paul’s claim.

According to The Times, he said: “Between 1966 and 1968, when I was hanging around them, it was clear that John had had enough. Of everything really: of his wife, Cynthia, of life, of the whole damn thing.”
