Paul Weller has said he's happier than ever in his own skin.

The 56-year-old singer said that finding love might be one of the reasons he now feels content.

"I am very happy. It comes from getting older, realising a lot of stuff and having kids growing up around you. I am enjoying myself, especially in the last few years," he said.

"It might be a few factors; finding the right person to fall in love with, having a greater sense of knowing myself and seeing all my good points and bad points and that sort of stuff. Generally I'm just more comfortable in my own skin.

Paul, who married second wife Hannah Andrews, the mother of his young twins, in 2010 , said he was halfway done on his new album, adding: "It's early days but what I've got so far is great."

The singer, who is performing at numerous festivals during the summer, added: "I'm always into what I'm doing at the time. I don't get too nostalgic about anything, there's not much point, and it can be heartbreaking too sometimes, so why would you? I just enjoy what I've got right now.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Taurus:

Your forceful personality makes people sit up and take notice of you. This is a great time to show off your expert knowledge. Demonstrating a command for facts and figures will result in a teaching or media position. Make sure you don't impose this air of authority at home. Your family won't appreciate being ordered around. You may be a superstar in intellectual circles, but you're just another relative on the domestic front. Don't bristle at your loved ones' irreverence. It's good for your ego.More
