Antony Costa is unrecognisable sporting much fuller frame

His career as a performer has required him to be in tip top physical shape.

But 12 years after the members officially disbanded at the height of their career, Antony Costa was a far cry from his boyband days, seen stepping out in Windsor on Sunday in an ill-fitting coat.

The singer, 35, looked almost unrecognisable as he smoked a cigarette while wearing a double breasted mac fastened at the middle with just one button.

Despite maintaining his slick sense of style, the singer’s jacket made for a slightly more snug fit around the middle.

Antony donned an all black ensemble underneath his coat and opted for a pair of comfortable trainers on his feet.

Switching up his look, the actor later ditched his mac for a denim jacket and loose-fitting white T-shirt, along with a pair of Chelsea boots.

He had been in Windsor for a charity event and is currently preparing to reunite with Blue later this year.

Following in the footsteps of a slew of other 90s and Noughties bands, the four-piece announced in January this year, that they were planning on reforming.

Antony revealed to Daily Star that Blue have several gigs lined up for 2017, after a successful stint on the road last year.

He said: ‘Me and the boys did a few gigs last year and we’ve got some gigs coming up in 2017.

‘We just keep doing what we’re doing, as obviously [we’ve] got our own individual stuff too.’
