Mr Justice Ferris, who earlier this year threw out 54-year-old Sir Elton’s£14m claim against the accountants, refused leave for an appeal against his decision. He held that such an appeal would have no real prospect of success.
Sir Elton could, however, renew his application by going direct to the Court of Appeal.

He claimed Haydon had been negligent, among other things, for allowingJohn Reid Enterprises to charge him overseas tour expenses.
Yesterday’s application for leave to appeal was only in respect of the decisionin favour of PwC.
