Mary Poppins legend Dick Van Dyke still singing at 98 as he performs alongside wife

Even though the sound of it may be something quite atrocious... Dick Van Dyke just doesn’t care, still singing at the age of 98.

The Mary Poppins star performed with a cappella quartet The Vantastix as he and his wife Arlene Silver, 52, hosted A Magical Afternoon with Arlene & Dick Van Dyke and Friends in Malibu.

At last week’s Emmys, Dick, who played chimney sweep Bert in the 1964 hit, said Arlene was “the love of my life”.

The legendary actor - who turned 98 in December - has revealed that he's eager to create his own one-man show, explaining that he has "a lot of stories to tell".

The movie star - who made his Broadway debut in the 1950s - told PEOPLE: "I was thinking of doing - 80 years in the business, I have a lot of stories to tell. I thought I'd just do a one-man show, like this. Just sit and talk to the audience."

Asked if his ambition is likely to be realised, Dick replied: "I've got a list. I'm pretty close." Earlier this month, Dick described his workout routine as his "secret weapon". The veteran actor does three gym sessions a week at the age of 98, and he believes that it's the key to his good health.

Speaking to 'Entertainment Tonight', he shared: "I recommend it to everybody. That's my secret weapon." The award-winning star feels that actors are in a privileged position. Dick admitted that he's had "such a good time" during his decades-long career in the movie business.

The 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang' actor - who received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame back in 2012 - shared: "It isn't work - it's play. Actors are so lucky. I've had such a good time." Despite this, Dick suggested that he's the last actor of his kind in Hollywood.

The iconic movie star said: "I think I'm the last of my generation, really. I'm 98. I have almost all my marbles. I can't remember what I had for breakfast."
