Five’s five-year reunion

Riding the wave of Take That’s successful comeback are boy-band Five, who have announced a reunion. Chart-toppers Scott Robinson, Ritchie Neville, Jason J' Brown and Richard Abs’ Breen, who hung up their mics five years ago, are keen to have another crack at the music game. However the fifth member, Sean Conlon, won’t be part of the comeback as he’s rumoured to have a solo deal. A source says, “Ritchie, Abs, Scott and J have kept in touch since the band decided to call it a day in 2001. After watching Take That and East 17 being rejuvenated, they began to consider a comeback. A few of the lads were still in touch with record label contacts who said now was the right time to do it. A lot of work has gone on behind the scenes and they are ready for a fully-fledged comeback.” The boys, who had three number one singles in the UK, have been working on routines, vocal coaching and performance classes.
