Bonnie Tyler, a.k.a. Gaynor Sullivan MBE, is a Welsh singer best recognized for her unusual husky voice. The 1977 album The World Starts Tonight and its hits “Lost in France” and “More Than a Lover” helped Tyler gain popularity across the globe.
The 71-year-old singer recently joined the panel on This Morning to talk about her new book and the 40th anniversary of her number-one single, telling hosts Craig Doyle and Josie Gibson, “I never get tired of singing it”, and some minutes later, only to be found miming her most famous singer and not really singing it.

But as she started singing her well-known ballad, which home supporters eagerly
anticipated hearing, many of them became discouraged when they saw she was miming.
