Five (originally spelled 5ive) are a British boy band put together in early 1997 by the same team who formed the Spice Girls. They enjoyed fair success worldwide, but particularly in the UK, parts of Europe, Russia, South Korea, Japan, Brazil, Israel and Australia. They disbanded on 27 September 2001 after selling close to 20 million records, and having 11 top ten UK singles and 4 top ten albums. The five members were Scott Robinson, Ritchie Neville, Jason 'J' Brown, Richard 'Abz' Breen and Sean Conlon. Four of the five original members (minus Sean Conlon) reformed the group on 27 September 2006, making an announcement at the Bar Academy Islington in London, England.
