Gareth Gates showed off his muscular new physique during an appearance at the Jacaranda Lounge beach club in Ibiza, and the star was barely recognisable after years away from the spotlight.

The 39 year old, who shot to fame when he came runner-up to Will Young in Pop Idol back in 2002, looked worlds away as he got up on stage and performed for guests.

Rocking a toned torso and bronzed tan, Gareth enjoyed screams and cheers from the crowd as he got everyone on their feet for an evening of fun and music.

Thrilled to be performing for a crowd, the star rocked a six-pack as he went topless in the Spanish heat.

With a salt and pepper beard to boot, the star couldn't stop grinning as he was also pictured posing in front of the main club sign.

The Jacaranda Lounge enticed club goers with the idea of a plush restaurant, Thai massage, and a chill out Shisha area too, and also claimed to be free entry.

After a successful club night, Gareth also reposted videos from fans as he wowed the room with his soulful voice.

"@gareth_gates we had such a fun night," one fan shared alongside a red heart emoji.

Revealing it was only a brief visit, the star was hopping back on to a British Airways plane a couple of hours later.

"Until next time Ibiza," the star wrote alongside a snap of the plane and the now-grey skies.

The singer looked happier than ever during his trip, which came only a week after it was revealed he'd found love with actress Allana Taylor, who is currently starring the new West End musical of the beloved Grease.

The star's new romance, which comes only seven months after he parted ways from his ex-girlfriend, DJ Chloe McLennan, was revealed when Allana shared a sweet snap of the two of them together on her Instagram page.

Gareth was suited and booted, as he looked suave in a black tuxedo next to the stunning actress.

Allana wrapped her arms around Gareth in a gorgeous full-length electric blue ball gown, as the pair gazed into each others' eyes.

"Found my one" the Grease star captioned her post, alongside a simple white heart emoji, and fans were over the moon for the pair.

"Love this so much!! Gorgeous couple! Xxx," one person wrote.

Another person exclaimed: "Ahhh! So pleased for yous x", followed by another gushing: "Awhhhhhh this is cuteee."
