Huge 90s dance act looks unrecognisable 30 years on from massive number one hit – but can you guess who it is?

He was part of a huge dance act back in the 90s and released one particularly famous song which topped the charts for four weeks. 

But this music star, 57, looks unrecognisable 30 years after reaching number one with a head of silver hair and slightly more mature face.

When the hit song went to number one back in 1994, it did so a year after it’s original release cracked the top 30.

Other songs released included U R The Best Thing and Shoot Me With Your Love but can you guess who it is?

It’s Peter Cunnah from D:Ream whose voice was behind all those belters including Things Can Only Get Better. 

Worlds apart: This 90s star looks unrecognisable with a silver head of hair and slightly more mature face – but can you guess who it is?

That's right! It's Peter Cunnah from dance act D:Ream whose voice was behind a load of huge belters including Things Can Only Get Better

Whilst his looks may have changed, his voice certainly hasn’t as the band have an upcoming gig at Butlins, alongside Peter Andre  and girlband, Cleopatra.

Despite the record making them a fortune and even featuring as part of Tony Blair’s new labour election campaign in 1997, Peter has slightly reservations about it.

He told the Belfast Telegraph in 2022: ‘I’ve a love-hate relationship with that song now. It’s been my meal ticket, for sure, but, you know, Tony Blair is basically a walking war criminal.

‘I’ve had people say that my work is tainted as a result, that I’m somehow complicit, which I find very, very hurtful.’

While Peter is the face of the band, some might argue he’s not its most famous member. 

That title could easily go to Brian Cox, the former keyboard player, who’s now better known for his TV science programs.

Before diving into academia, Brian was deep into the music scene, spending time with D:Ream, although he didn’t play on their most famous anthem.

The band earned themselves a Brit Award nomination in the 90s, but then went on a on hiatus in the late 90s and early noughties.

Bit of a difference: Brian is now an English physicist who is a professor of particle physics. Whilst he played the keyboard  musician he didn't play on the bands most famous anthem

Good times: Sixteen years ago Peter and bandmate Al reunoted the group and created the album 'In Memory Of...,' where Brian Cox chipped in, but just as a session musician

Peter however continued to stay in the music scene, and wrote songs for pop acts including Steps and A1.

He even lent his vocals to Chicane’s Top 40 track Love on The Run in 2003.

In 2008, Peter and bandmate Al Mackenzie decided to reunite the group. 

They created the album ‘In Memory Of…,’ where Cox chipped in, but just as a session musician. 

In January this year, the band posted a picture of somebody’s hands at a computer, presumably working on some production as they captioned the picture: ‘What’s this? Yes, we are back in the studio working on new tunes for the next album.’
