I was a heartthrob in a huge 90s boyband – but after we split I drove the ladies wild as a male stripper | The Sun

A TOP Nineties hunk traded in his pop career for a new gig as a stripper.

Jeff Timmons, 50, was a member of Los Angeles pop group 98 Degrees – who recently revealed they will re-form for a fresh tour across America to mark their 25th anniversary.

He is one-quarter of the Invisible Man hitmakers, with the band also including brothers Nick, 49, and Drew Lachey, 47 and Justin Jeffre, 50.

After finding chart fame they went on a hiatus in 2003 – with Jeff embracing his stripping streak eight years later.

He started off in the Chippendales at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas yet will now juggle the group's comeback with his ongoing show, Men Of The Strip.

Jeff acts as host of the event – dubbed "the hottest male revue in Vegas" – as well as flashing his rock-hard abs as a performer, too.

He told US Weekly of his pop bandmates' reactions, and confessed: "I'm always the guy that does sort of the edgy things of the group, and they're familiar with all that.

"They're very supportive but I don't know that they quite understand it!"

He added of his new show: "It is still edgy, sexy and girls can let loose, but it's more about the production.

"It's a real show with lighting design and great music that we've put together.
