What’s her secret? Sophie Ellis-Bextor has hardly aged a day in two decades as she performs her 2001 hit Murder on the Dancefloor on Sunrise
Two decades have passed since Sophie Ellis-Bextor swept the Aussie charts with hits like Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love) and Get Over You.
But the English songstress looked virtually the same as she did during her heyday when she performed Murder on the Dancefloor on Sunrise on Friday.
The 43-year-old stunned in a sparkly purple mini-dress with a faux fur trim around the hem and sleeves.

She delivered flawless vocals in the pre-recorded performance as she twirled around on a boat that was sailing down Melbourne’s Yarra River.
Fans on social media went wild for the rendition, with one gushing: ‘The best!’
‘Great song,’ another tweeted, while a third commented: ‘What a Sunrise sesh!’
Murder on the Dancefloor reached No. 2 on Australia’s ARIA charts in 2001 and was certified platinum.

While she has admitted to finding motherhood exhausting at times, she is open to having a sixth child.
Sophie explained on the Lockdown Parenting Hell podcast: ‘If I hadn’t had five, I think I would have just had one. It was all or nothing.’
The hitmaker has been Down Under in recent weeks for her Australian tour.
