meet his idols - Ant and Dec.
“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.”
“I am a massive fan of the show and Ant and Dec. They were the reason I was a Newcastle FC fan initially growing up! Spending time with them and potentially people you have idolised over the years is so exciting.”
On finding love on the show, he adds:
“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!”
Describing himself as a ‘passionate’ cook, Myles promises 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 reveals.
“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.”
Little food won’t be a problem either for the X Factor star.
“I am alright on little food,” he explains.
“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
Listing Sir Elton John as his ideal campmate, Myles laughs as he admits he may well burst into song to try and lift everyone’s spirits.
“If I am in a good mood I will definitely sing one of my songs,” he
“I will try and keep up everyone’s spirits. It would be nice to entertain. At the same time, I will be respectful to everyone if they want quiet time.”
But the upbeat star admits he doesn’t know how he is going to cope facing the trials - particularly as he is scared of bugs and spiders.
"I know my family are going to be wetting themselves laughing watching me do BushTucker Trials. Anything involving small confined spaces or bugs is going to be hard!”
“And it’s going to be so weird not being able to call someone. I will miss my PlayStation so much too. I am passionate about gaming.”
He says his Rak-Su band mates can’t wait to watch him.
“I know they will vote to try and make me do the trials,” he adds.
“They are really supportive and they totally understand. I would love to stay in
the band but if other opportunities come along my way as well after this, you have to take it by the scruff of the neck. They would do the same. I would never hold them back.”
And whilst he admits he is a very competitive person, he says he wants to embrace the experience rather than going all out to win it.
“This is about team work,” he explains.
“I want to embrace the moment. Of course it would be a dream come true to be crowned ‘King of the Jungle’ as this is such a big TV programme and I
know it would mean a serious amount to my friends and family.”
“But I am just excited to be a part of it! I feel a winner already to be on it and it feels so surreal. I am a pretty normal person who goes to the shops in my PJs! I can’t wait.”
