Former X Factor star Ray Quinn wowed fans with his muscular new look and shoulder length hair

He’s charmed TV fans with his own boyish beauty – but a year after quitting showbiz during the pandemic, Ray Quinn looks very different.

The 33-year-old, who rose to prominence as a child playing with Anthony Murray at Brookside, gained the nation’s respect last year when it was revealed he had given up on sing and play to become a Hermès delivery driver.

His decision came at the height of the coronavirus pandemic, with a source explaining at the time that the ‘hard transplant boy’ was doing what he had to do to support his family, including his son Harry, 9 years.

In a photo shared on his Instagram Wednesday night, Ray can be seen across a dining table with his knuckles under his chin.

His upper torso looks incredibly muscular, with heavily tattooed arms sticking out of his beige t-shirt and dark green waistcoat.

While his clothes are millions of miles away from the usual dress and boot style he has opted to sing his swing-inspired songs to, so is his hair.

What was once a carefully gelled quiff is now shoulder-length curls, and a thick beard wraps around the lower part of his face.

In early 2021, Ray revealed he had started working for the family business, installing rugs alongside his brothers Darren and Robin.

Their father, who sadly died of cancer in 2020, taught them the trade.

He said to the mirror: “Dad knew I was going to help Rob and encouraged me to do it – but I laughed when I said I lifted my first tool.

“When I started, I went to work in my father’s old uniform. He always said you could get out of anything; hold my head up – and that’s what I did.

“It was good to be with my family during this difficult time.”
