During their career, they achieved 18 top twenty singles and four top ten albums, and were one of the UK's most popular boy bands during the era, aided by strong tabloid interest in their 'bad boy' image compared to the 'clean cut' image of rivals Take That. 

The group have sold over 18 million albums and 1.8 million singles in the UK.
