'Don’t people die from all this?' Jools Holland's A-list concert to tackle prostate cancer

With his words of sincere warning out of the way, the 77-year-old star danced his way across the stage with ease, with no one the wiser that he had just come off of an 11-hour flight from LA.

Despite Stewart being, perhaps the most notable name on the guest-list, a close-call between Stewart and Van Morrison, who donned a baby blue suit and characteristic glasses, it was the incredible talent of the jazz band that shone through on every performance. It would take a serious heart of stone not to have at least cracked a smirk as the infectious sounds of saxophones, trumpets and pianos filled the air.

Not to mention the range of effortless talent from powerhouse singers like Emeli Sandé and Paloma Faith to the trailblazing popstar Olly Alexander, The Jam legend Paul Weller and finally the haunting tones of Celeste, the audience were in for a treat as all joined forces with the common denominator, to raise awareness for Prostate Cancer UK.

Former Spice Girl Melanie C, whose father was diagnosed with prostate cancer back in 2010, relayed her passion for taking part in the charity event saying how “blessed” she was to still have her father with her today, before remarking: “Prostate cancer is a dreadful disease that sadly affects so many of us.”
