Singer Lulu has said she has no intention of retiring any time soon.

The star, 64, now a grandmother, has been in the spotlight for five decades.

"I have a singing coach, go to throat specialists regularly to get checked over, so that I can keep going," Lulu said.

"To me, retire is a dirty word. Music really makes me happy, it's who I am, and I don't know what I'd do if I didn't do it.

"Of course, when I'm 95 I might have to be dignified and go, 'Oh, stop, this is ridiculous', but for now I'm keeping going."

The Shout! singer admitted that "ageing is tough".

"In my head, I think I'm 30, so it shocks me when there's an ache or a pain... But I'm 100 per cent healthy and I look after myself now. I haven't had surgery, I just make sure I care for my skin. I do pilates and dance classes so I keep moving, that's so important."

Lulu, who is currently single, said she's "not bothered" about the possibility of another relationship.

"If I was really looking for someone, I think I'd find them. Of course, sometimes I feel lonely, but who doesn't?" she said

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

You're determined to get your agenda met, even if it means being loud and difficult. The prospect of creating friction does not bother you at all. You'd rather put people in an uncomfortable position than accept their inflexible position. By stirring up enough publicity, you could exert enough pressure to create some changes. A new set of rules will allow you to move forward with a brilliant plan. You'll get the full support of an influential executive who is tired of the old guard.More
