90s heartthrob looks unrecognisable with a bushy grey beard

90s heartthrob looks unrecognisable with a bushy grey beard after ditching his pop career for radio – but can YOU guess who it is?

One of the 1990s’ most beloved pop heartthrobs looks unrecognisable after leaving boyband career behind.

The performer, 43, has ditched his clean-shaven look in favour of a bushy grey beard after pursuing a career in radio.

This singer rose to stardom over 20 years ago as part of one of the nations’ biggest boybands – but can you guess who it is?

New look: One of the 1990s' most beloved pop heartthrobs looks unrecognisable after leaving boyband career behind as he boasts a bushy grey beard - but do you know who it is?

It’s Scott Robinson, from the 90s boyband 5ive.

Scott famously performed alongside Sean Conlon, Ritchie Neville, Jason ‘J’ Brown and Abz Love as a member of the beloved group, earning thousands of female fans.

While he has left his pop career behind, Scott has stayed in the music world, and now presents The Big Drive Home afternoon show on Radio Essex. 

He also co-hosts the The A to Z of Men podcast with DJ Chris Brooks.

Scott has since grown a large grey beard, meaning he looks noticeably different from the bare-faced look he sported during his 5ive days.

He has also settled into married life with his wife Kerry, with the couple tying the knot the day after 5ive split up in 2001.

The pair are also proud parents to four children, two sons and twin daughters.

Iconic: The band went onto sell 1.6 million albums and 2.4 million singles before splitting in 2001, but three members still regularly reunite for shows across the country

Last September, Scott shared a sweet tribute to his wife Kerry as they celebrated their 21st wedding anniversary.

He wrote: ’21 years [of] marriage today. Married to this absolutely wonderful woman kerry_robinson83

‘I honestly don’t know what I would do without you. Love you happy Anniversary xxx.’

Scott landed his big break when he first auditioned for 5ive in 1997, beating out over 3000 hopefuls including Russell Brand.

The band went onto sell 1.6 million albums and 2.4 million singles before splitting in 2001.

In a recent interview with The Sun, Scott discussed his hilarious time with the boyband, revealing at the peak of their fame they were partying with Oasis.

But far from a boozy romp, the lads spent the evening playing Bop It! together.

He said: ‘Liam was like, ‘Get on this lads, this game is absolutely legendary!’

‘We’re standing in a circle playing Bop It with Liam Gallagher and he’s getting so annoyed that he’s not winning.’

Since then 5ive has slimmed down to just a trio of members, and they occasionally reunite to perform across the country, including a show at the Might Hoopla Weekender.

In March, the band will join the 90s Baby Pop UK tour with other acts such as 911, members of S Club, and Liberty X.
