Five (also referred to as 5ive) were formed in 1997 by Richard "Abs" Breen (now Abz Love), Ritchie Neville, Scott Robinson, Sean Conlon and Jason "J" Brown. They went on to have a successful pop career that came to an end in 2001, due to creative differences.
The band originally tried to reunite in 2006 without Sean Conlon. However failed to secure a lucrative enough deal and disbanded again in 2007. In 2012 the iTV2 documentary series saw the band reunite with Conlon, however j. Brown refused to take part in the series. The band were unsure whether or not to replace J and in the series we saw them unsuccessfully audition various candidates. The band are now continuing as a four piece with their own headline tour set for November 2013.
