Art Attack's Neil Buchanan unrecognisable after quitting TV job for rock band | The Sun

ART Attack star Neil Buchanan has been spotted looking unrecognisable after quitting TV to join a rock band.

The telly presenter – who rose to fame on the CITV show in the 1990s – looks very different to his fresh-faced appearance on the kids' programme.

Neil, 66, hosted a whopping 19 series of Art Attack before it came to an end in 2007, after 17 years on ITV screens.

His TV fame saw him become a household name, and easily recognisable by his clean-shaven appearance and red jumper.

However, the star now looks very different after switching the cameras out to join heavy rock band Marseilles.

He now spots salt and pepper long locks that cover his forehead and an impressive stubble.

The star continues to draw professionally in between performing with Marseilles, showcasing his abilities online.

Neil first joined rock band Marseilles back in 1976, with the group releasing four albums and six singles together.

The group have also supported the likes of Judas Priest, Nazareth, Whitesnake and UFO on tour.

The band went their separate ways ahead of Neil's Art Attack career, but reformed after the show ended in 2009.

Last year, Neil said that he'd love to see the show – which won a BAFTA in 1993 – make a return to television.

"It’s the 30th anniversary of Art Attack, so I would be open to that. Of course I would," he told The Metro last year.

Neil added: "That would be great fun, as long as I could do it with the people who did it with me before."

In September 2020, a conspiracy theory claiming that Neil was the secretive UK street artist Banksy went viral.

Banksy’s identity has famously remained unknown to the public.

The rumour began to circulate in early September when a Twitter user suggested it was “rumoured” that Buchanan was in fact the mind behind artworks.

Neil issued an unequivocal denial of the rumour he is Banksy on his website.
