Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood switched on the Christmas lights in London's Hampstead this weekend - and brought his girlfriend Ekaterina Ivanova along to the ceremony for support.

The guitarist was guest of honour at the festive event on Hampstead High Street on Saturday, close to his home in nearby Belsize park, North London.

Wood took to the stage in front of an excited crowd, wishing on-lookers "Happy Christmas" as he pressed the button to illuminate the town centre, while his 20-year-old Russian girlfriend watched from the wings.

The music legend split from his wife of 23 years, Jo Wood, over the summer after his affair with Ivanova was revealed in the press.
