HRVY fans were delighted earlier this year when it was announced he would be joining BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing. The 21-year-old has since made waves on the dance floor, smashing through the first two weeks of the competition with ease. The youngster was partnered up with professional dancer Janette Manrara, who last year withdrew from the competition alongside her partner Will Bayley, after he sustained a leg injury during practice.
Last week saw Janette and HRVY delivering an exceptional Waltz.
The duo managed to accumulate 49 points overall, placing him joint first alongside EastEnders star Maisie Smith.
While HRVY is slowly but surely securing his position in the ongoing dance competition, he was first best known as a unique pop star.
The star has excelled over the last year with a slew of singles, and his first ever album being released later this month.

Last year HRVY spoke to a number of publications about his tour with The Vamps at the time.
Whilst speaking to United By Pop, HRVY was asked about the inspirations behind his work.
To which the young star replied: “I’ve listened to Justin Timberlake a lot.”
On top of this, he added: “Growing up, I listened to loads of different music, so didn’t really have an actual inspiration.”
The Personal singer has done exceptionally well in the year since his tour, and even released some more singles.
The one single that seems to have stuck out from the rest is Me Because of You.
Me Because of You was released on February 14, 2020, and was a smash hit, accumulating over 1.4 million views on YouTube.
However shortly after the song’s release HRVY explained how he came across the iconic phrase.
Speaking at the time about his new single, HRVY explained: “It’s a cute little story because I saw a comment on Instagram from a fan that said, ‘I’m only me because of you.’ I immediately loved that line so I went into the studio with the concept to write a song around it.
“But I decided to switch it up and start the song acoustically to show that contrast before rolling into that full-blown sound.
“We wrote the song and I loved it, so I went back to say thank you to the person who wrote the comment but couldn’t find them.”
Strictly Come Dancing continues Saturday at 7.25pm on BBC One.
