Grease stars reprise their roles as innocent lovers to raise money for charity with Christmas record

They electrified the 1970s with their high-school romance, but now John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John have re-enacted their role as innocent lovers 34 years on to raise money for charity with a Christmas record.

Their dance moves may be slightly less agile, but their faces look as young as they did three decades ago. Some commentators have described the accompanying video as "creepy and odd".

Travolta, 58, and Newton-John, 64, who rose to fame playing Danny Zuko and Sandy Olsen in the 1978 hit film Grease, about the romance between two students in the 1950s, have reunited to release an album of Christmas songs.

The album was produced to raise money for a range of charities for children and disabled people. Among the other big names featured on the collection are Barbra Streisand, Tony Bennett, James Taylor, Kenny G and Cliff Richard. »
