Mark Owen put on a lively show as he stormed the stage in a bright red suit at the Isle of Wight Festival on Saturday.

The singer, 50, was in his element as he beamed from ear to ear while watching the huge crowd at the Newport event.

Mark layered a white waistcoat under his blazer and added a zebra print belt to break up his quirky look.

Mark let his long hair flow freely and sported a mustache as he belted out a slew of hit tunes and threw his arms in the air.

Earlier today, the Take That star wore a striped shirt with a lobster print design and blue chinos.

The annual four-day festival kicked off on Thursday and boasts an impressive line-up, including Lewis Capaldi, Kasabian, Pete Tong and Muse.

Elsewhere, Jessie Ware, 37, slipped into a plunging black jumpsuit with a silky neon shirt layered over the top.

She swept her raven locks back in a chic low ponytail and accessorized with a pair of shimmering silver earrings.

The Isle of Wight Festival was originally a counter-culture event held from 1968 to 1970 before being revived in 2002.

Now held in Newport, the first festival took place at Hells Field, Ford Farm, near Godshill and was attended by around 10,000 people.

In 1970, after surprisingly high levels of attendance, Parliament added a section to the Isle of Wight County Council Act 1971, preventing nighttime outdoor gatherings of more than 5,000 people on the island without special permission from the board.

Last month, Mark revealed he hoped to finally be known as the ‘cool’ of Take That as he released his first solo album in a decade.

In a new interview, the singer opened up about his latest musical offering, revealing bandmates Gary Barlow, 51, and Howard Donald, 54, joked it was “shit”.

Speaking about his long-awaited album, Mark told The Sun: “I try to play it cool but I’m not cool, there’s no cool in me”. Even being in Take That all this time, I still don’t think there is, but that’s okay.

‘Howard (Donald) always thinks he’s cool, and Jason (Orange) was really cool – he just is. At least I’ll be the coolest guy on this album!’

The band last performed together in 2019 on their Odyssey: Greatest Hits Live tour and have spent the past few years on hiatus working on solo projects.

And their hiatus, along with the coronavirus lockdown, allowed Mark to work on his own album, although the record was initially met with a cheeky jibe from his pals.

He explained that he “sent the song” to Howard and Gaz, only for them to say “that was crap”, with Mark quick to add: “No, after they were very complimentary. ”
