Thirty-year-old former pop heart-throb Sean Conlon was left red-faced after he failed to make it through the first round of auditions on UK talent show The Voice this week.

The singer, who was a member of the briefly popular '90s boy band Five, admitted he was "gutted" by the rejection.

The show's format challenges contestants to prove themselves purely on their singing talents — with celebrity coaches listening in on the auditions with their backs turned.

Coaches Tom Jones, will.i.am, Danny O'Donoghue and Jessie J all gave Sean the thumbs down, but after the audition Jessie recognised him right away.

"The problem is, as a coach, I don’t know what I’d do with you," she told the experienced pop star, who just happened to be one of her idols as a teen.

Jessie later told Bang Showbiz, "I was so excited about Sean from Five auditioning but I couldn't believe I didn't turn around for him. He was the first concert I ever went to.

"The way I react when I realise it's him will be the moment people realise I am still very much in a dream world and pinching myself that I'm here."
