5ive are looking for a new member, so here's 5ive ways to get in

Everybody get up…

SO 5IVE are getting back together, but now they’re 4our.

The nineties boyband have reunited for an ITV2 show, but J Brown (the one with the eyebrow ring who went out with Sporty Spice for a while) has decided he doesn’t want to be involved.

Scott, Ritchie, Sean and Abz (yes, that’s with a ‘Z’) are all on for it, and have even been in the studio recording.

But they can’t call themselves 5ive if there’s only 4our of them, so they’re on the hunt for a replacement for J (who was, arguably, the best one).

Chris Herbert, who created the boyband, has taken to Facebook to appeal for a new member.

Think that could be you? Here are the criteria…

1. You must have great looks and ‘swagga’

We’re not sure what ‘swagga’ is but the advert for the new member stipulates that you must be:

Male… late 20s early 30s, singer and/or rapper, great looks and swagga.

Is this swagga?

2. You must be prepared to duet with Atomic Kitten

3. You must be prepared to hang around with Liberty X, Honeyz, B*witched, 911 and Atomic Kitten, who are all back together for The Big Reunion

4. You must be able to rap like J and do all his bits in the songs

When the rainy days are dyin’, gotta keep on keep on tryin’, all the bees and birds are flyin’…


I’ll be the resident, president, I’m the fifth element…


5. You must be prepared for several more reunions

This isn’t the first time 5ive have been 4our. They announced their reunion back in 2006, but without Seán.
