Strictly 2020: HRVY age, songs, real name and what does his neck tattoo say?

Strictly Come Dancing has its finalists and HRVY has managed to make it to the final leg with pro partner Janette Manrara.

The YouTuber and pop star, real name Harvey Cantwell, has been impressing the judges week-upon-week with his high energy routines, even making history as the first contestant to get a perfect score in week six.

Now he has just three routines to go before he finds out whether he’s done enough to secure the essential votes.

Has he done enough to beat Bill Bailey, Maisie Smith and Jamie Laing?

We’re about to find out.

But before we do, here’s what we know about him.

How old is Strictly’s HRVY?

HRVY is 21 years old, making him one of the youngest stars to make it to the final (beaten only by Maisie this year, who is 19).

At the age of 14, he released his first single, and a year later he was performing alongside Little Mix as the support act for their Salute tour.

He was just 16 when he presented CBBC’s Friday Download, and he was on the show for a year in 2014.

In 2017, he signed to a record label and has since been considered one of the ‘ones to watch’ in British pop music.

On top of this, he has been uploading videos on YouTube, and has amassed 2.8million followers.

What songs does HRVY sing?

HRVY has released a string of hit songs that are particularly popular with a young teenage audience.

Tracks include Personal (which has 289million views on YouTube alone), Million Ways featuring Loren Grey, and Younger feat. Jonas Blue.

In 2019 he joined forces with K-pop band NCT Dream and released Don’t Need Your Love.

That year, he was nominated for Choice Breakout Artist at the Teen Choice Awards, but lost out to Billie Eilish.

Two weeks ago, he released his own cover of Baby I Love Your Way by Peter Frampton.

What does HRVY’s neck tattoo say?

HRVY has a string of roman numerals down the left side of his neck – and the reason behind them is actually really sweet.

The tattoo is actually in honour of his mum, Nicky, with the tattoo actually reading her birthday.

When he got the tattoo back in September 2019, he posted a photo online and joked: ‘Sorrry mum… last one I promise.’

Strictly Come Dancing: The Final airs tonight at 6pm on BBC One.
