For most 5SOS fans, Luke Hemmings in 2015 seems to be exactly the same boy that we fell in love with in front of the pink speakers – just with slightly more facial hair and slightly less fringey hair now.

"My personality has definitely changed doing all the stuff that we have done – I'm not as shy and reluctant as I used to be, but it's definitely still a struggle."

Don't worry too much though if you're a 5SOS fan who DOESN'T like change, because Luke's planning on sticking around with this band for as long as poss - or at least as long as you want him to.

Asked about his ten year plan, Luke replied with the best answer ever, saying: "I see myself still playing shows with the band – as long as the fans want the music, I'll be there. I'm learning that it's not just a band to some people.

"It's like, what you're doing is actually for a good purpose and that's your purpose in life. It's a cool purpose to have, to make people happy with music."
