John Travolta has led tributes to his Grease co-star Dame Olivia Newton-John and her “incredible impact” following news of her death.

The British-born singer died “peacefully” at her ranch in Southern California on Monday morning at the age of 73, with her husband confirming her death on social media.

She was surrounded by family and friends, John Easterling said.

Dame Olivia is best known for her starring role as Sandy in the 1978 film Grease, in which she appeared opposite Travolta, who played Danny Zuko.

Writing on Instagram, Travolta said that her “impact was incredible” and signed off his tribute to the actress as “your Danny”.

“My dearest Olivia, you made all of our lives so much better,” he wrote.

“Your impact was incredible. I love you so much. We will see you down the road and we will all be together again.

“Yours from the first moment I saw you and forever! Your Danny, your John!”

Stockard Channing, who played fellow Pink Lady Betty Rizzo in the film said Dame Olivia was “the essence of summer” in her own tribute.

“I don’t know if I’ve known a lovelier human being,” she said in a statement to US media outlet People.

“Olivia was the essence of summer – her sunniness, her warmth and her grace are what always come to mind when I think of her.

“I will miss her enormously.”

Dame Olivia’s performance saw her nominated for multiple awards including two Golden Globes, and various other film accolades.

She was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame almost 41 years ago to the day of her death, on August 5 1981.

The soundtrack to Grease is one of the world’s best-selling albums of recorded music and features the two hit duets from Dame Olivia and Travolta: Summer Nights and You’re The One That I Want.
