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

Earlier in the day, the Take That star sported a striped shirt with a lobster print motif and blue chino trousers.

The four-day annual 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 pulled her raven locks back into a chic low ponytail and accessorized with a pair of glitzy silver earrings.

Isle Of Wight Festival was originally a counterculture event held from 1968 to 1970 before it was revived in 2002.

Now held at Newport, the first festival was hosted at Hells Field, Ford farm, near Godshill and was attended by about 10,000 people.

In 1970, after unexpectedly high attendance levels, Parliament added a section to the Isle of Wight County Council Act 1971, preventing overnight open-air gatherings of more than 5,000 people on the island without a special license from the council.

Many artists have performed since the festival was revived two decades ago, including Amy Winehouse, The Rolling Stones, Queen + Adam Lambert and David Bowie.

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

In a new interview, the singer opened up about his latest music offering, revealing that bandmates Gary Barlow, 51, and Howard Donald, 54, joked it was ‘s**t.’

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

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

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

And their break, as well as the coronavirus lockdown, allowed Mark to work on his own album, though 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 ‘it was s**t’, with Mark quick to add: ‘No, afterwards they were very complimentary.’
