Speaking to Tubridy, once the audience calmed down, Hawkes revealed that he actually fell out of love with the song following his worldwide success.

He said: "I had a little time after the craziness of the song where I fell out with it - we divorced for a while. But these days I can’t help it, look what happens when I play it, the energy I can feel it."

The One and Only spent 5 weeks at number one and Hawkes admits that he thoroughly enjoyed every bit of its success. He told Tubs: "Very fast I went from playing the piano in pubs locally to playing arenas and stadiums overnight. There was one time when I did 7 countries in one day.

"I did that classic popstar thing where I bought all my family cars and blew it all on a recording studio and stuff like that.

"Pretty soon after. I was about 23 and I put a downpayment on a house, my record label dropped me, my girlfriend dropped me and I was like, 'O this is actually real-life’.

"But it’s all good, I’m married and have three children now."

Viewers at home were as happy as the studio audience to see Hawkes perform his much-loved hit with many taking to Twitter to share their excitement:
