BIOGRAPHY

Born in Edgware, London, Antony went to school in England and in Larnaca in Cyprus; his dad is a Greek Cypriot. At age 20 he shot to fame as part of the top boyband Blue alongside Lee Ryan,Duncan James and Simon Webbe.

Blue were formed in 2001 and went on to become one of the biggest UK boybands of all time. They notched up 11 top ten singles, 3 number one albums, a collaboration with Elton John, eventually selling over 14 million records around the globe. The band split in 2005 too much teen heartache, and Antony went on to pursue a solo career. It didn’t go too well.

His only solo album flopped, but Antony went on to greater things joining the cast of smash hit West End musical Blood Brothers. In 2008, he modelled for Giorgio Armani too.

In 2009 he reunited with Blue who reformed for a comeback tour. They then went on to represent the UK in the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest with their single, I Can, finishing in a semi-respectable 11th place. The band are currently working on a new album.

Antoney has one daughter, Emilie Olivia, with his ex-fiancée Lucy Bolster. She was born on 10 March 2004.
