Masked Singer’s Morten Harket, 61, shares his "youthful" secret as fans amazed

Morten Harket has opened up on what it is that keeps him looking young at 61 years of age.

The Norwegian vocalist and musician, famed for being the lead singer of the synthpop/rock band A-ha, revealed what it is he does that keeps him looking youthful during a chat with Daily Star Online.

It comes after he was unmasked on ITV's wacky show The Masked Singer and was revealed to be the celebrity under the Viking costume.

After his mask came off and he revealed himself, fans rushed to Twitter while the show was on to gush over Morten's ageless good looks.

Asked what keeps him looking young, fit and healthy, the star revealed he rarely drinks alcohol and puts it down to that.

Morten told Daily Star Online: "I don't have any real secrets I suppose at all but I don't drink alcohol really.

"Not because for that reason but just it doesn't work with my life."

Adding that he "never really had time for" alcohol, the star continued: "Drinking has never suited me. I either need to be able to drive my car or I have to be alert maybe."

He added: "I just never started. I'm not teetotal it's just rare. And it doesn't do your body any good anyways!"

It comes after the star mocked judges for not guessing it was him before this weekend's show as he says it was "blatantly obvious".

Davina McCall, Jonathan Ross, Rita Ora and Mo Gilligan have been sharing their predictions for weeks but they didn't come close.

Speaking on This Morning, the star told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield about his time on the show.

"The idea is that we threw them further off!" he joked.

"I thought it was blatantly obvious it was me even before the last night. My band members spotted me straight away."

He continued: "My personal sound system was failing me, and it was really confusing – it made it so much harder.

"It made it even harder to dodge my voice.

"I managed to keep things quiet. The way to tell a lie is to stick to the truth.

"You had to twist the question when you are asked."

The Masked Singer continues on Saturday at 7pm on ITV.
