Watch our interview with 5ive and the other Big Reunion bands:
Abz, who is taking part in ITV2's TV series The Big Reunion with his former bandmates, was asked by DS if during his time away from pop music he had ever been mistaken for anybody else famous.
911's Lee Brennan claimed that he often got muddled up with Dec from Ant & Dec, Michael J Fox and Ben from A1, while Jessica Taylor from Liberty X said that members of the public always asked whether she was "Michelle from Liberty X".

However, Abz's case of mistaken identity was far less glamorous, commenting: "Chris, the ginger dude, Evans. Once I was in a car, Chris Evans was in a Bentley and I pulled open the door. I said, 'Yo Chris, what's up?'
"He looked terrified like I was going to rob him. I think he mistook me for a thug. That's about it."
The ITV2 series features 5ive, 911, Liberty X, B*Witched, The Honeyz and Atomic Kitten reuniting for a musical extravaganza. The series will feature behind-the-scenes interviews as the ex-popstars attempt to heal old wounds and deal with their demons.
The Big Reunion starts on Thursday (January 31) on ITV2.
