Richard Ashcroft has been away for six years and is finally back with a new album and new UK performances.
But when he appeared on BBC Breakfast to chat about his comeback, viewers were distracted by his choice of a cream jacket and scarf and mirrored aviator sunglasses.

His ensemble almost overshadowed the Verve frontman's announcement that he will be performing at London's 02 Arena in December.
The singer took a long hiatus from recording but is back this year with a new record called These People.
