However after her divorce from Gibb in 1973 Lulu withdrew herself from the gaze of the public eye until she married Frieda in 1976. After the release of her autobiography in 1986 Lulu returned to centre stage when she bagged her first UK number one with the re-release of Relight My Fire – a duet with the then-popular boy band Take That. Since then Lulu has experienced a renaissance by dueting with the likes of Elton John Ronan Keating and Blue and in 2000 was honoured with an OBE.
