Jason Orange, 52, was pictured yesterday for the first time in eight years in public and his latest appearance has seen him bear an uncanny resemblance to bandmate Gary Barlow, 52.
Fans will undoubtedly be shocked to see the hitmaker in public, but also because of his changed appearance.
The Mancunian singer left the group in 2014 after he decided he didn’t want to continue recording music and touring.
In an official statement from the band, he commented that there were “no fallings out, only a decision on my part that I no longer wish to do this”.
Jason’s recognisable short hair was replaced with a longer messier style, a grey moustache and stubble.
He was pictured smiling as he strolled through London and browsed estate agents.
Jason showcased a more understated style with a long coat, beige trousers, Chelsea boots and a blue beanie.
Earlier this month, the band reunited for the Coronation concert as a trio, as they were also without Robbie Williams, 49.
Ahead of their performance, Gary spoke to The Sun about reuniting: “We were really honoured to be asked to take part, it’s a huge moment in our country’s history.”
The group performed live again after four years with hits including Greatest Day and Never Forget.
On Instagram, the band confirmed they were “back for good”.
Fans commented on the BBC’s video of their set: “Incredible performance as always!” and “Such a huge stage and so many insane musicians.”
For one of their songs, Britain’s Got Talent Calum Scott, 34, joined the trio as a surprise guest.
The boy band was among the most successful groups in British pop history, with seven albums and 11 singles reaching number one in the UK.
Their single Back for Good catapulted the group to global stardom when the 1995 track went to number one in 31 countries and debuted in the US top ten.
However, since leaving the group Jason has lived a quieter life where he occasionally performed in smaller venues around his native Manchester.
Compared to his other bandmates, Jason was reportedly recruited for his abilities as a dancer and as a visual for the group.
Therefore, he did not sing or play on the initial albums in the early days.

His romantic life has also been fairly private after a few relationships were made public.
Having met comedian Catherine Tate, 53, as part of a sketch for Comic Relief, the pair dated for a few months in 2011.
They were both spotted supporting David Walliams, 51, for a charity swim at the River Thames before they split.
In the early nineties, he dated TV presenter Jenny Powell, 55, before calling it quits and remaining friends.
