Elton may not live in New York City. But he's supporting a campaign to keep the EastEnders on the air there, according to the January 11, 2005 Sun.

Michelle Collins, who played ''Cindy Beale'' for 10 years, kicked off the cause with a taxicab placard, begging Channel 21 not to can the BBC drama. Since it's considered a money-loser, fans hope to change executives' minds by raising over 15,000 pounds.
