The Ordinary Boys Bio

The Ordinary Boys are an English indie rock band from Worthing, in West Sussex, England. Originally named Next in Line, they were influenced by mod revival and Britpop music, as well as the bands Madness, The Specials, The Kinks and The Smiths. Their name derives from a Morrissey song, "The Ordinary Boys".

The membership of the band that split in 2008 consisted of founder members Samuel Preston (vocals, guitar) - generally known simply by his surname "Preston", William Brown (guitar), James Gregory (bass), plus Simon Goldring (drums), who had replaced Charles “Chuck” Stanley in 2005.

Following limited success on the UK charts, their popularity revived and grew particularly due to media coverage that the frontman, Samuel Preston, received when participating in Channel 4's Celebrity Big Brother UK in January 2006, where he also met Chantelle Houghton, who he subsequently married and then divorced.
