In 1997 The Corrs were on top of the charts as they scored the highest-selling album of the year with Talk on Corners. They also nabbed five platinum albums during that decade and proved to be just as successful abroad as they were at home.

They returned to the music scene in 2015 after a ten-year hiatus and performed their first live show in Hyde Park last year. They followed it up with a European tour to promote their new album and made their first big festival appearance on Saturday night as they lit up the main stage at the Isle of White festival.

Andrea, (42), Sharon, (46), Caroline, (43) and older brother Jim (51) treated the ecstatic crowd to an energetic performance, with lead singer Andrea throwing in an Irish dance to accompany her vocals.

Sharon, who put on an animated display as she played the violin, couldn't stop beaming as the audience sang along to their biggest hits.

She later shared a series of photos from their main stage appearance, saying: "God it was fun... what a audience!"
