What is Myles Stephenson famous for?

Rak-Su singer Myles scored a legion of fans after he first appeared on The X Factor as part of the R'n'B boyband.

The group's winning single – an original song called Dimelo – made it to number six in the Official Singles Chart.

The band went on to play support slots for Little Mix and Olly Murs as they joined their peers on tour, but were later dropped by their record label due to lack of success.

Along with his X Factor win, Myles also famously dated Love Island star Gabby Allen last year, with the two even moving into a North London home together as their romance blossomed.

However the couple split in August 2019 after the personal trainer caught her boyfriend messaging other women.

At the time, a source said: “Gabby ­suspected Myles had been messaging a girl a while ago, but he told her that one of his mates had used his Instagram account.

“Then when they were meant to be having space apart, Gabby caught him red-handed. She immediately ended the relationship."

What has Myles Stephenson said about going into the jungle?

The boyband star admitted he thinks the jungle will be more of a test than Simon Cowell's talent show, saying: "Going on I’m A Celebrity is going to be so much harder than doing The X Factor but I am so excited. I have watched it for years and it is something I have always wanted to do."

He also confessed to being frightened of bugs and spiders, telling bosses: "I have to get my family members to get rid of them for me!"

Despite blossoming romances developing on the show in previous years, Myles also revealed he wasn't looking to meet anyone new following the recent split from his ex.

Myles said: “I am single. I have just got out of a relationship but I think I want to be single for a bit and embrace single life!"
