The 'Rocket Man' singer wants the newly single star to forget her relationship woes at his annual Hollywood bash.

Katy Perry will hopefully find a new man if Sir Elton John gets his way after it was reported that the 'Candle In The Wind' singer wants to help his single showbiz female friends forget their relationship troubles.

According to the Daily Mirror, the legendary musician wants to "put a smile back on their faces" as he carefully chose who to invite to his annual post Oscars party.

A source told the publication: "Elton wants this year's party to go with a swing, and be more fun and raucous than in previous years. It was his idea to invite some of the highest profile, newly-single female celebs in town.

"He thinks it's a great way to put a smile back on their faces – and hopefully land them new men.

"He got in touch last month to personally offer Heidi and Katy his support, and invite them to his bash. They will be given fantastic tables, right beside Elton and David. And they have been told there will be scores of hot, eligible – and straight – young men there.

"David has one or two director pals who are very interested and Elton is keen to fix them up."

The 84th Annual Academy Awards starts tomorrow night (26th February) with Sir Elton's party starting shortly after.

Katy split up with her husband and comedian Russell Brand at the end of last year following 14 months of marriage.

Meanwhile, Elton's partner David Furnish recently confessed that the planned biopic of the 'Your Song' star featuring Justin Timberlake is still going ahead and just awaiting a suitable director.
