The Dartford -born star, whose real name is Harvey Cantwell, launched his career by uploading videos to Facebook.

Parents may recognise him from when he presented CBBC show Friday Download and supported Little Mix on their Salute Tour in 2014.

After signing on with Virgin EMI in 2017, the 21-year-old now has more than a billion song streams across all platforms, with his debut album 'Can Anybody Hear Me' due to be released this year.

Last year, fans of the former Leigh Technology Academy student caused a commotion in Bluewater as he held an impromptu event, forcing security to remove him from the building.

Speaking to the BBC , HRVY said that he was "thankful" to be taking part in this year's Strictly contest.
