The longtime friends - who played Danny and Sandy in the 1978 musical - were photographed dressing up as their characters at a singalong event in Florida.

Grease will ALWAYS be the word.

Olivia, 71, and John, 65, took part in a Meet N Grease event at the Coral Sky Amphitheater in West Palm Beach.

The duo have worked together on several occasions since the film's release in 1978. They later starred together in the 1983 rom-com Two Of A Kind, and also made an appearance in Michael Jackson's music video for 'Liberian Girl' in 1987.

They also reunited for a joint Christmas album for charity in 2012 titled This Christmas, as well as a music video for the song 'I Think You Might Like It'.

Last week, the jacket that Olivia Newton-John wore in Grease was returned to her by an auction-winner, who had previously bought it for £185,000 to raise money for her charity.
