What do we know about Justin Scott’s former boyband Triple 8?
Triple 8 formed in 2003 and were touted as a British equivalent to Justin Timberlake’s band N’Sync.
The band was comprised of five members — David Wilcox, Iain James Farquharson, Jamie Bell, Josh Barnett and Justin.
Their music was a mix of pop and rock, with all five members singing and dancing through all their performances and music videos.
They hit the UK Top 10 twice, with their first two singles — Knockout in April 2003 and Give Me a Reason later that same year.
Band member Iain James Farquharson left in 2004 and ended up writing songs for many of the UK’s best-known pop and R&B artists, including Emeli Sandé (Read All About It), Little Mix (Wings and DNA) and One Direction.
Now known as Iain James or Sparx, he is married to Kelli Young of Liberty X.
