Former Bananarama singer Siobhan Fahey is heading for a High Court showdown with a man who claims he co-wrote Young at Heart, a 1983 hit for The Bluebells which was also used in VW's TV adverts. Robert Beckingham, also known as Bobby Valentino, is suing Fahey and writer, Robert Hodgens. He is seeking a High Court declaration that, as co-author, he is entitled to royalties from its exploitation, and an injunction restraining Hodgens, Fahey, and record companies Anxious Music, Clive Banks Music, Polygram Music Publishing and In a Bunch Music from infringing his alleged copyright in the work, and infringing his moral rights by refusing to identify him as a co-author. Fahey is identified in the proceedings under her married name of Stewart. Davenport Lyons is acting for Beckingham.
