Dick Van Dyke may be almost 100 - but he's still got a spring in his step.

The 96-year-old Hollywood icon has charmed fans with his appearance in a playful music video, where he and his wife Arlene Silver, 50, dance and duet to the tune of the song "Everybody Loves a Lover".

Released as a cover by Arlene & the Vantastix (Silver's band), the track features both Van Dyke and Silver's vocals, as they duet sweetly together. Meanwhile, the Mary Poppins star doesn't stop at singing. Despite his advanced years, Van Dyke takes center stage in the music video to show he's still got what it takes to step to the beat.

His younger wife kicks the clip off by singing the opening verse while preening in a mirror. She then saunters over to her husband, who is sat in a floral chair.

With a cheeky twinkle in his eye, Van Dyke buffs his nails and jumps up to two-step along with his wife as they sing the chorus. There's no shortage of fancy footwork and flirty flourishes from Van Dyke, who shimmies along with Silver in time to the jazzy beat.

He also wheels out some of his trademark humor, winking at the camera and playing around with nude statues. The video ends with Van Dyke and Silver canoodling on a love seat and giving each other a peck on the lips.

Vantastix backup singers Eric Bradley, Bryan Chadima, and Mike Mendyke also feature in the video, as does Tony Guerrero with a swinging trumpet solo. But it's Van Dyke's signature charm that steals the show.

The four-time Emmy winner is beloved for his roles in classic movies like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and Mary Poppins, as well as his iconic show The Dick Van Dyke Show.

Silver - a producer and singer - is his second wife, with whom he'll celebrate his 10th wedding anniversary at the end of this month. The pair tied the knot in 2012, People reports.

Van Dyke was previously married to Margie Willett, but they split in 1984 after a long separation. He was also romantically involved with the actress Michelle Triola for over 30 years until her death in 2009.
