Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish have been offering marriage counselling to Madonna and Guy Ritchie.

"Elton and I have spoken to Madonna plenty of times lately. She and Guy are close friends of ours. They both need to concentrate on their careers if they want their relationship to work," Furnish was quoted as saying by

"If they neglect that, their relationship will inevitably disintegrate. They will be fine if they don't neglect what they love to do. If that means they can't see each other, that's the way it has to be."

Furnish also added that work had kept him away from Elton who he married in a gay ceremony.

He said: "We know what it's like to be under so much pressure. We had our lovely wedding and honeymoon, but I haven't seen Elton for the past two weeks because I've been busy with the Aids charity and my own projects. Couples have to compromise. That's what Guy and Madonna have to remember and they'll make it."
