Kingsize is the third studio album by English boy bandFive. The album was released in the United Kingdom on 27 August 2001, reaching number three on the UK Albums Chart. The album was later released in Australia on 2 December 2001. The album failed to chart in the United States. The album went on to be certified Gold in the United Kingdom.
Despite only being released three months earlier, Kingsize was re-issued in the United Kingdom on 24 December 2001, containing an additional track, "The Heat", as well an enhanced section, featuring music videos and interview clips. The Japanese release of Kingsize features an additional slipcase, as well as the bonus track "1,2,3,4,5", which was issued as the B-side to "Closer to Me" in the United Kingdom. Copies of the album bought at Woolworths stores in the United Kingdom came with an exclusive poster booklet, containing information and facts on the band, as well as a complete chart history and discography. The poster booklet also indicated that a VHS release was planned to be released alongside the album, entitled Kingsize: Behind the Scenes, detailing the recording of the album, featuring interviews with the band, and including the music videos for the lead single, "Let's Dance", and at the time, was planned as the album's second single, "Hear Me Now". However, due to the band's imminent split, "Hear Me Now" was never released as a single, the VHS release was cancelled, and a Greatest Hits compilation was released just three months after the release of Kingsize. The track "Set Me Free", which was recorded during the album sessions, was later issued as an original track on the band's Greatest Hits compilation.
