Former Hi-5 star Nathan Foley, 39, sparks hair plug rumours with a dramatic new look on The Voice


After 10 years of entertaining kids as an original member of Hi-5, Nathan Foley made a triumphant return to TV during Monday’s episode of The Voice.

But it wasn’t just his spectacular comeback that got people talking, the 39-year-old unveiled a new hairstyle. 

During his Hi-5 years, Nathan’s hairline appeared to have been receding, but he appeared onstage with a full head of hair for his blind audition on The Voice.

Nathan confessed he went through a ‘difficult’ period after leaving Hi-5 back in 2008, and now lives on the New South Wales Central Coast.

‘That’s why I went overseas, went to the States and went to Europe. [I] had to get away from Australia, because they just saw me as the Hi-5 guy,’ he confessed.

He said he’s getting married in six weeks, and revealed he and his fiancee, Nicolette, are already looking at starting a family and laying down some roots in Australia.

‘What an absolute pleasure to have Nathan on #TeamDelta,’ she tweeted.
