YOUTUBE star and singer HRVY is the 12th and final signing for BBC favourite Strictly Come Dancing, HOAR can reveal.
The social media sensation, 21, joins stand-up comedian Bill Bailey, EastEnders’ Maisie Smith and popstar Max George in this year’s line-up.
Kent-born HRVY, full name Harvey Leigh Cantwell, has had almost 500million views online and previously appeared on BBC’s Friday Download on CBBC.
An aspiring singer, he collaborated with Jonas Blue on their hit single ‘Younger’ in 2019 and supported popband Little Mix on their 2014 Salute tour.
A source said: “HRVY brings a massive youth audience, which the BBC craves.
“Historically these slightly lesser known stars have done well on the show – just look at Joe Sugg and Saffron Barker.
“If he can dance, he’ll go far in the competition for sure.”
HOAR revealed his competition yesterday, leaving a space for the social media mogul to join the 11 other contestants.
