It’s official; Ray Quinn looks absolutely unrecognisable.

The X Factor star first burst into our lives as a sweet and fresh-faced teenager from Liverpool, starring as tormented child Anthony Murray in the Channel 4 soap opera, Brookside.

When he was 18-years-old, he auditioned for The X Factor and survived right up until the show’s final, where he lost out to Leona Lewis.

Since then, we’ve seen him appear in Dancing On Ice and in several West End musicals - but, when he was dismissed from his record label in November 2007, he fell off the radar a little bit.

Now he’s back in the headlines with his latest Twitter selfie.

And, looking at it, it seems he’s swapped his love of music for a love of lifting weights…

Check it out:

Wowzer, we barely recognised him!

It seems as if has been squeezing in a fair few gym sessions, judging by his Twitter feed.

In one snap, he can be seen staring moodily at the camera as he challenges: “Who's in the gym! Come on ppl! YOU make the difference…”

And he shared a photo of his bulked-up body alongside a snap of him from his X Factor days, writing: “See...always had a bit of muscle hiding somewhere.

“Came out eventually!”

Ray has a son with actress Emma Stephens but they split earlier this year.

And he recently revealed he was still single... something which hasn’t gone unnoticed by his new female fans on social media.

Anyone else want to bet his relationship status will change before too long?
