Most of a cultural phenomenon than a pop star, Rick Astley has won over an army of new fans in recent years thanks to going viral on social media and performing with the likes of Foo Fighters, Take That or Blossoms (with whom he sings sets of songs by The Smiths).

Of course he'll always be known for the song ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’, but he's had plenty of recent chart success too, including the release of his ninth studio album ‘Are We There Yet?’
