BRITAIN’S Got Talent stars Bars and Melody look very different from when they appeared on the show as angelic youths.

The boys, now in their 20s, are still on the road as a rap and R&B act and have just released a new track called Dumb.

However, they will likely be remembered forever for their anti-bullying song on the talent show.

These days, Charlie Lenehan – known as Melody – is covered in tattoos, with inkings on his neck, arms and chest.

But he’s co-star Leondre Devries – who is Bars – is as close as ever, and the couple are enjoying themselves in exotic locations around the world.

Bars and Melody first starred in the 2014 series Britain’s Got Talent and were promoted to the semi-finals when Simon Cowell hit his golden buzzer.

They made it to the finals thanks to a performance of I’ll Be Missing You but lost the crown to Collabro.

His Syco Music released their debut album called 143 the following year and signed the pair to a £500,000 deal.

The couple toured Europe and Japan and appeared in America’s Got Talent: The Champions, the couple traveled the world.

But life after the talent show wasn’t all airplane sailing.

In 2016, Leondre’s father, Antonio Devries, filed a lawsuit against the duo, alleging Hopeful was his song written about issues he was having in his life.

He said he was unhappy the couple had moved away and that he was responsible for promoting Bars and Melody before they appeared on Britain’s Got Talent.

A statement released by the duo at the time said: “Bars and Melody regret to hear that legal action has been threatened and hope this will be resolved quickly and amicably.”

There was more drama the following year when the duo were involved in a horrific gun scare after their manager was threatened with a gun.

The couple were taken to safety after the incident while on a European tour in Germany, which took place outside a supermarket.

Manager Phil O’Neil revealed how the shooter claimed they blocked the road with the tour van.

He said: “I have never encountered a gun in 14 years of work and have never had to deal with this situation.”

Bars and Melody tweeted after the incident that they were safe and doing well.

More recently, the pair went on tour in 2022, with gigs taking place in Manchester and London on their Stay Frosty tour.

Reflecting on their musical journey over the past year, the pair shared a video of their moment on BGT.
