Myles Stephenson is taking part in this year's I'm a Celebrity

The Watford-born star won a huge legion of fans after he participated in the 14th series of The X Factor, forming one quarter of R&B group Rak-Su. The band – which also consists of Miles' childhood friends Ashley Fongho, Jamaal Shurland and Mustafa Rahimtulla – is one of the very few acts on the series to have auditioned singing their own material. The group's winning single - original song Dimelo - rose to the number six spot on the Official Singles Chart. After their huge success, the boys went on to support previous X Factor stars Little Mix and Olly Murs on their tours.

Despite being single, Myles has ruled out finding romance in the Jungle. The 28-year-old insisted he wants to embrace single life and he definitely doesn't want to find love under the stars. "I am single," he said ahead of his I'm a Celebrity debut. "I have just got out of a relationship but I think I want to be single for a bit and embrace single life!"

Luckily for his campmates, the singer described himself as a "passionate" cook, and he has promised to give it his best shot when trying to rustle up food from basic rations. "I love cooking and I cook every night if I am not touring," he revealed. "My favourite meal is Beef Wellington or West Indian food. You don't get much to mess around with in the jungle but I will try my best."

On dealing with small rations, he added: "I am alright on little food. If I am in the right mentality, I can work perfectly fine with minimal food as I am used to it. Obviously it is a totally different environment in the Jungle though!"
