Hot Chocolate are a British soul band popular during the 1970s and 1980s, formed by Errol Brown and Tony Wilson. The act had at least one hit every year from 1970 to 1984, and their song “You Sexy Thing” made the Top 10 in three decades.

Formed in 1968, the band initially consisted of Errol Brown (vocals), Franklyn De Allie (guitar), Jim King (shortly thereafter replaced by the unrelated Ian King) (drums), Patrick Olive (percussion), and Tony Wilson (bass) with Larry Ferguson joining the band in the following year (keyboards).

By 1970 the band’s line-up had changed again to include Harvey Hinsley and Tony Connor who replaced De Allie and King respectively.

The band continued well into the 1980s, and clocked up another big hit with “It Started with a Kiss“, in 1982, which reached Number 5 in the UK. In all, the group charted 25 UK Top 40 hit singles. Their single “You Sexy Thing” became the only track that made British Top Ten status in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.
