Bye-5… Nathan Quits!

Published on 13th Nov, 2008

Bye-5... Nathan Quits!THE last original member of Hi-5 Nathan Foley is leaving the kiddies group at the end of the year.

Just two weeks after Foley’s former fiancee Kellie Crawford quit to pursue an acting career, Channel Nine issued a statement announcing the move.

“I’ll always love Hi-5 and I’m very proud to be one of the original cast members, but after 10 years in the group its time for me to move on and explore other opportunities,” Foley said.

“One of the best things about being a part of Hi-5 is entertaining all the kids and parents. It’s very important to me to be able to say goodbye to all the fans, so its nice to announce I’m leaving while were on tour.”

Foley is the last original Hi-5 cast member to leave after Kellie Crawford announced she’d be departing the group last month.

The pair will perform together with Hi-5 for the last time at Vision Australia’s Christmas Carols on Christmas Eve.

Charli Delaney also left the group in February and was replaced by Casey Burgess.

Kathleen de Leon Jones was replaced by Sun Park last year when she left to have a baby, while Tim Harding was replaced by Stevie Nicholson after he was injured in a motorcycle accident.
