Ladies, All Rise for this policeman...

How could anyone forget Blue?


The noughties boy band rose to the top of charts thanks to hits such as One Love and Breathe Easy. Their global success was only aided by the charm and good looks of the 4 members, Antony Costa, Duncan James, Lee Ryan and Simon Webbe.

One Blue is about to rise to the top again, but this time in a rather different profession.

Following the announcement of Duncan James joining the cast, many have been waiting with bated breath to see what role he will assume in the British soap opera.
