Duncan James looks unrecognisable in a throwback snap where he has long hair and tattoos.


The Blue singer looked completely different to his usual smart style he goes for.

The star shared photos of himself posing topless showing off his tattoos and longer hair while he pulled funny faces into the camera.

The 43 year old posted the videos onto his Instagram stories, where he's no stranger to sharing topless photos and clips.

Duncan's latest TV appearance was when he took part in Strictly The Real Full Monty where he stripped down to a thong.

In a clip showed early on in the programme, Duncan left little to the imagination when he stripped down to a leopard print thong in front of his friend Brenda Edwards.

Fans took to Twitter straight away to express how impressed they were.

One said: "Duncan in a thong done me in," as another added: "Duncan James bending over in a leopard print thong was exactly what I needed to see on my TV tonight."

The boyband Blue, where Duncan first found fame, are getting ready to reunite for a 20th anniversary tour but have said this time things won't be as wild.

The band will tour right across the UK, with the event kicking off in September 2022.

They mentioned this time will be for their nine children and will feature a crèche backstage instead of their old partying days.

Their Heart & Soul Tour will kick off in Belfast on September 11, where they will be joined by special guests Atomic Kitten.

Duncan recently paid an emotional tribute to his friend and fellow musician Sarah Harding, who passed away from breast cancer in September of last year.

He took to his Instagram last month to share a sweet photo of the pair, where he said he hopes the Girls Aloud star is 'resting in peace'.

Alongside the image of Duncan and Sarah taken at a star-studded event, he wrote: "We all know someone who has sadly had cancer or lost their battle with this horrible disease.

"I pray Sarah is resting in peace now and smiling down with all the love and affection she’s been getting from you all.

"Doing strictly the real full Monty, was my way to pay tribute to Sarah and all those who lost their battle.

"Let’s all remember to check ourselves and not feel ashamed to tell someone or seek medical advise. Big love to all the #strfm team and hope you all enjoyed watching the show #rememberingsarah."

During his Full Monty performance, Duncan talked about Sarah as he encouraged others to check themselves in a bid to raise cancer awareness.

On his Full Monty performance, Duncan said: "This was way scarier than performing with Blue, but I hope it encourages people to check themselves.

"We did gigs with Girls Aloud… I was closest to Sarah. I felt very sad when I found out she had cancer. With the whole Covid thing, she didn’t want people to go and see her."
