    BEATLE PAUL McCARTNEY, MBE, ONE OF THE TWO REMAINING BEATLE BACHELORS, FLEW IN TO LONDON TONIGHT (FRIDAY) FROM A HOLIDAY IN PORTUGAL AND TOLD WAITING NEWSMEN: "WHAT A SURPRISE TO COME HOME TO!"
    JANE ASHER, HIS ACTRESS GIRLFRIEND, FLEW IN WITH HIM BUT RAN AWAY FROM THE PACK OF NEWSMEN AND SOUGHT REFUGE DOWN A MOVING ESCALATOR AT THE AIRPORT. THEN McCARTNEY MANAGED TO BREAK AWAY AND FLED THE SAME WAY - WITH A COUPLE OF CONSTABLES AS ESCORT. THE COUPLE SPED OFF IN A BIG LIMOUSINE.

    McCARTNEY 22, AND MISS ASHER AGED 18, ARE STILL SINGLE, ACCORDING TO A SPOKESMAN AT THEIR HOLIDAY HOTEL WHO HAD BEEN PRESSED BY NEWSMEN IN PORTUGAL TO FIND OUT IF THEY'D MARRIED IN SECRET SOMETIME AGO.

    NEWS OF THE AWARD, MAKING THE BEATLES MEMBERS OF THE ORDER OF THE BRITISH EMPIRE, WAS ANNOUNCED IN THE QUEEN'S HONOURS LIST. ACCUSTOMED TO HOLDING DOWN TOP SPOT ON THE POP CHARTS, THE FOUR MOP-HAIRED PARTNERS TOOK A MINOR PLACING ON THE HONOURS LIST. THEIR MBE IS THE LOWEST GRADE IN AN ORDER OF CHIVALRY FOUNDED IN 1917 BY KING GEORGE THE FIFTH. BUT ITS PRESTIGE FAR OUTWEIGHS ANY NUMBER OF RECORD SUCCESSES.

    BEATLE LEADER LENNON COMMENTING ON THE AWARD SAID: "I THOUGHT YOU HAD TO DRIVE TANKS AND WINS WARS." THE OTHER BEATLE BACHELOR, GEORGE HARRISON SAID: "I DIDN'T THINK YOU GOT THIS SORT OF THING FOR PLAYING ROCK AND ROLL."
