Here's everything you need to know about when Fleur first hit our screens and what she's been up to since the X Factor…
Who is Fleur East?
Fleur East was born on October 29, 1987.
The singer made history when she became the first of The X Factor’s singers to reach number 1 on the iTunes chart while still performing on the competition.
She competed on the second series in 2005 as a member of the girl group Addictiv Ladies.
In 2012, she launched a solo carer with the record label Strictly Rhythm and nailed collaborations with DJ Fresh and Bassline Smith.
Amongst many covers, the Walthamstow native performed her chart-topping remake of single “Uptown Funk” by Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson, and gained a cult following from her talent.
In 2017 she released her album Love Sax and but sadly she was dropped from her label in that same year.
East lists Michael Jackson, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Sade, Emeli Sandé, Jessie Ware, and Florence Welch among her musical inspirations.
What did she say about joining I'm A Celebrity?
Fleur says it’s the fear of the unknown, which is the scariest prospect.
“It’s that not knowing what you are going to have to face that I am dreading the most,” she explained.
“I am scared of everything you have in there and I am scared of all the trials!
Any trial you face there you haven’t faced in real life. “I can’t imagine what it will be like.
At least you have an element of control with the singing and dancing.
With this, there is no control and it is completely outside my comfort zone.”
She claims that among her biggest phobias are creepy crawlies, being up high, or in the dark.
In other words, anything that you can run into while being in the jungle.
