Britain's Got Talent star Ronan Parke looks totally unrecognisable as he celebrates his 25th birthday, 12 years on from when he made his debut on the show.

Ronan, 25, won the judges over with his incredible voice when he was just 12 years old and finished the show as a runner up in 2011.

While many will recognise the talented star from his show-stopping performances on Britain's Got Talent, the singer is now all grown up having celebrated his 25th birthday on Tuesday, 8 August.

As his close pals marked his birthday in sweet Instagram posts, Ronan reposted a handful which revealed just how much the star has changed over the years.

The 25 year old has mousy brown hair and is often showcasing a number of stylish looks.

One photo shared by a friend showed Ronan in an all white outfit – a shirt with a loose tie and tailored wide leg trousers.

He looked completely glam as he wore a pair of black sunglasses and matching black smart shoes while holding a glass of wine on what looked to be a rooftop bar.

Another birthday post showed the star beaming at the camera wearing a pair of black sunglasses – thought to be a staple in his stylish wardrobe.

Ronan is often keeping his 50.6K Instagram followers updated on his various outings and glam outfits.

A post at the end of July showed the singer posing for a mirror selfie while donning a black vest and gold statement ring.

Another was a full length photo of his camel coloured outfit featuring wide leg tailored trousers, an unbuttoned shirt and a long trench style coat hanging over his shoulders.

He completed the look with a pair of gold ridged sunglasses and a golden brooch secured on the jacket.

Many will recall Ronan wowing the judging panel in 2011 when he sang his heart out to Nina Simone's classic Feeling Good.

And Ronan is now believed to be working in hospitality after he was photographed wearing his uniform arriving for work at a top London restaurant.

After the star appeared on BGT, he was snapped up by Simon Cowell's label, Ronan released a debut album, named Ronan Parke, and went on to perform around the UK.

In the following year, he was dropped by the label – but released a new single, We Are Shooting Stars.

Last year, Simon spoke out about his thoughts on the changing face of the music industry.

"What’s interesting now is there are so many outlets for singers, what with social media platforms, however, weirdly there aren’t a lot of new artists breaking out at the moment," he told The Sun.

"I think the reason is everyone’s doing the same thing. So I try and encourage people to do something different. Like on BGT when someone comes on and sings a song I’ve heard a million times before, I try and advise them not to do what everyone else is doing."
