Marti Pellow showed off her age-defying looks in Lorraine 30 years after the release of her chart-topping single Love Is All Around.
The Wet Wet Wet lead singer, 58, made an appearance on the daytime TV show on Thursday to promote his new Popped In Souled Out tour.
The star was happy to reminisce about his youthful talents as a songwriter.
He told Lorraine: ‘What it did for me, Lorraine, was reintroduce me to those songs I wrote when I was a teenager.
“Seeing him closer to 60 now, looking at that body of work, I just go ‘Ahhh’, it’s just fantastic.”

Marti admitted that one of the moments he is looking forward to is meeting fans who had toddlers during his hit release in 1994 and bringing them to the show.
He said: ‘It’s great from that point of view because I will bump into people and they will say ‘When Goodnight Girl was No.1, my daughter was born or my son was born’.
‘Or I was talking to some guy this morning and he said ‘I’m coming to see you, my mom and dad used to play your records’
Lorraine joked: ‘Baby’s would have been conceived to your records, I’m sure’.
Marti’s new tour, set to start on March, 10, in Dublin, will include hits such as Wish I was Lucky, Angel Eyes, Temptation Love Is All Around.
The tour is over 21 days and stops in Dublin, Glasgow, Manchester, Cardiff, Leeds, Newcastle, London, Bournemouth and Birmingham.
His tour comes three years after the star gave the rest of the Wet Wet Wet the green light to replace him as the lead singer.
Marti left the band to embark on a solo career in 2017, with The Voice winner Kevin Simm – best known for his work with Liberty X – filling his shoes the following year.

The singer said he wished the group all the best as they followed a route previously taken by Spandau Ballet and Queen, who have both replaced pivotal band-members with notably mixed results.
He told The Mirror: ‘It is what it is, I think it’s a different vibe and it’s going to be a different dynamic. The vibes are going to be different…and if people enjoy it then fair play to them, they might not see any different.
‘The work I did with them I’ll always cherish… despite the messy ending.’
The band enjoyed enormous success throughout the 1980s and ’90s, with hit single Love Is All Around – a cover version of The Troggs’ 1967 original – spending 15 consecutive weeks as UK number one in 1994.
They eventually disbanded after touring for their 1997 album 10 amid disagreements over royalty payments, while Pellow sought rehabilitation to overcome substance and alcohol abuse issues.
They would reform in 2004 with a greatest hits album, followed by sixth studio album Timeless three years later, before Pellow quit the band for good in 2017.
But despite their long history, the singer admits he has limited contact with former band-mates Graeme Clark, Neil Mitchell and Tommy Cunningham.
He said: ‘We don’t really talk to each other that much, I guess that’s quite sad, but, you know, hey ho. Life’s short as it is. We weren’t marching to the same drum.’
