Who would win in a fight between The Beatles and ABBA? Lily and Himesh have THOUGHTS.

If you could make one band disappear from the face of the earth and claim their songs as your own, who would you choose? That's the question that everybody is asking themselves after watching Yesterday, the latest rom-com from Richard Curtis (Love Actually) and Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire).

Starring Lily James and Himesh Patel, the film follows Jack Malik (Patel), a struggling singer-songwriter in a provincial English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading. After a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, he wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed.

Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, and with a little help from his steel-hearted American agent, Debra (Emmy winner Kate McKinnon), Jack’s fame explodes. But as his star rises, he risks losing Ellie — the one person who always believed in him, his childhood best friend, Ellie (James).

We caught up with Lily and Himesh to discuss the film, performing at Wembley with Ed Sheeran, the most romantic things they've ever done for a partner and other hard-hitting questions such as 'who would win in a fight between The Beatles and ABBA?'
