In the year 2000, Costajoined forces with three of his friends and fellow musicians to form the band Blue, which proved to be a life changing decision for the quartet who instantly rose to pop stardom. With hits like ‘All Rise’ which reached number four on the UK Official Chart, and ‘Too Close’ which reached number one, it’s no surprise that the R&B inspired singles are still floor fillers at clubs, events and parties to this day.

Since enjoying a high profile musical career with Blue, Costa took a brief break from the group to focus on his solo ventures.

Naturally, Costa’s individual profile rose and he became highly in demand to star as himself due to his cheeky-chappy personality and celebrity status. In 2005, Costa was a contestant on the popular reality programme ‘I’m a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!’ which further gained him a huge fan following, and he appeared on Dancing on Ice as a judge, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and in a number of pantomimes.
Most recently, Costa has once again joined forces with his former bandmates due to much fan demand. Taking to the stage to represent the UK, Blue made their comeback as the country’s chance to win Eurovision Song Contest in 2011, which also prompted a one off documentary ‘Eurovision: Your Country Needs Blue’. With their fame and fan base reignited, Costa & Blue announced that they would be appearing on ITV’s The Big Reunion and have since gone on to complete a UK wide tour.
