Musician Sting starred on Monday's edition of The One Show – and his enviable looks distracted fans.

The 70-year-old – real name Gordon Matthew Thomas Sumner – appeared on the show to chat to hosts Ronan Keating and Sam Quek about his new album and upcoming Las Vegas performances.

During his appearance on the show, Sting told of his three-week Las Vegas stint.

He said: "I have played in Vegas many times but having your own allows you to create a setting for the songs you haven’t seen before.

"It is going to be a very visual show."

After Sam quizzed the hitmaker on the name of his new album, The Bridge, he said: "The Bridge, I thought it was a really nice metaphor for what we are all going through at the moment.

"Everybody is looking for a bridge to the future. Where we can feel more safe, more happy and we don’t know where it is."

However, viewers tunning in were not fussed about what the singer was saying but more taken aback to see how youthful he looked whilst sitting on the sofa.

Several fans even commented that he looked closer to 50 than 70.

One gushed: "Sting is 70…70 can you believe that ? He's on the one show and looks like he's in his 50s."

A second added: "Sting on the one show….70 last week …looks about 50."

A third added: "Sting on the One Show tonight – he’s just turned 70; looks incredible."

Last month, the Every Breath You Take singer got fans hot under the collar with a brand new snap.

Sat on a rock and posing in a deserted setting, the legendary singer wore leather boots and a striped t-shirt as he gave the camera a smirk in one of the latest promotional shots for his upcoming 15th studio album.

"Tune into the @bbcradio2 Breakfast Show from 7.30am/BST tomorrow to hear me chatting with @zoetheball before the world premiere of my brand new single on her show!" the dad-of-six told followers prior to his chat on the airwaves.

Sting's fans recently gushed over his appearance when he posted a new snap on Instagram

Fans was flooded with positive comments from his loyal fans – many of who focused on his dashing looks rather than the revelation that new music is coming soon.

"Handsome," wrote one Instagram user, while another quipped "Oh that shot is a WOW" underneath his recent social media post.

"Wow you look gorgeous," a third added amongst the hundreds of comments left on the star's post.
