East 17 are an English pop boy band group consisting of original member Terry Coldwell, Robbie Craig since 2014.

The group achieved 18 top-20 singles and four top-10 albums, and were one of the UK’s most popular boy bands during the early to mid-1990s, aided by strong tabloid interest in their ‘bad boy’ image compared to the ‘clean cut’ image of rivals Take That. Their style blended pop and hip hop in songs such as “House of Love” and “Let It Rain”.

The group have sold over 18 million albums worldwide and according to the British Phonographic Industry (BPI), East 17 has been certified for 1.8 million albums and 2.4 million singles in the UK. Their biggest selling single, “Stay Another Day”, was the UK Christmas number one of 1994
