What has Myles Stephenson said about I’m A Celebrity?

Myles opened up about his expectations in a video shared by ITV.

The singer explained: “I don’t know w hat to expect but at the same time I know it’s not going to be full of bunny rabbits. It’s going to be man-eating spiders.

Why did Gabby Allen and Myles Stephenson split?

On August 22, 2019, HOAR exclusively revealed that Gabby dumped Myles after catching him messaging other girls.

The Love Island star discovered flirty message exchanges on Instagram between her beau and other women.

The couple had been going strong since they started dating in September – having moved into a North London home together at the beginning of the year.

But their relationship has been rocky in recent months and after a string of rows Myles temporarily moved back home with his mum to give Gabby space.

However instead of the move helping their relationship, Gabby grew suspicious of Myles’ sketchy behaviour.

A pal 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.

She is shocked that it happened, especially after everything she went through with Marcel.

She has made her decision and doesnt want to be with someone she cant trust.

In the days prior to HOAR revealing the split, there had been speculation that they had split after she deleted loved-up snaps of her and Myles from her Instagram.

Who else has Myles Stephenson dated?

Myles secretly split from his long-term girlfriend Rebecca Bignell after reaching the live finals on The X Factor.

The pair had been “on a break” since September 2017 after drifting apart to help him focus on the ITV show.

HOAR revealed how The X Factor singer was also growing close to researcher Demi Kaye – much to the anger of the show’s bosses.

A source said: “Their flirting has become a big talking point in the contestants house and has been noticed by some of the crew.

“It’s against the rules and now bosses have given her a ticking off.Demi seems very taken with Myles charm and theyve been hanging out together at the contestants house.”

HOAR’s Bizarre column also revealed how the hunk enjoyed a secret hook-up with Love Island star Malin Andersson during his time on the show.

And after hitting it off on social media the pair met up in person for a more intimate liaison.

An X Factor source revealed: “Myles clearly took a fancy to Malin after she made contact on Twitter and Instagram.

“They met up in secret and enjoyed a few nights together at her home in Milton Keynes before going their separate ways.

“It was a cheeky move by Myles given X Factors bosses ask contestants to concentrate on the show while theyre still involved.”

What did Cheryl say about Rak-Su while he was on The X Factor in 2017?

Cheryl, who temporarily judged with Simon at the Judges’ Houses during Myles’ year on X Factor, admitted she was a fan of the band as they performed.

Myles got all bashful and becamered-faced as he made eye contact with the former Girls Aloud star.

As the boys left Simon couldn’t help poking fun at him as hesaid: You like her don’t you?

Myles looked embarrassed as Cheryl said: I’m taken, sorry!

Simon then couldn’t resist saying: Anything can happen on this show!

Why was Myles Stephenson warned off by Liam Payne?

At the time of Myles’ X Factor days, Cheryl was dating former One Direction star Liam Payne who didn’t seem impressed by Myles’ flirty antics.

Liam appeared on the ITV show in 2017 to perform his single during the first live show and quipped: “He fancies my missus so Ive got to keep an eye on him!

But Myles didn’t take any offence as he told Now magazine: “Liam did indeed [make a little joke], hes a lovely bloke, so down to earth, so humble, you wouldnt think that hes sold millions and millions of records. Hes such a down to earth guy and its an honour to meet him.”
