BOY CRUSH: JORDI WHITWORTH
Oct 31, 2017
Jordi Whitworth is a multi-talented British musician and model who is positioned to take the entertainment industry by storm. While he is best known for his previous role in Overload, the British Boyband and 2014 X-Factor finalists; after nearly two years as part of the band, Jordi is set to begin the next chapter in his career as a solo artist with the release of his debut music Summer 2017.
Jordi recalls some of his best moments with Overload to include their time as X Factor UK finalists in 2014. Personally his time on the X Factor was an all round incredible learning experience, and getting called a Stud Muffin from Cheryl is something he will never forget. Being able to talk to the judges and learn from some of the most successful people the Music Industry is not something he takes lightly. The X Factor was something he never expected would happen in his life, but he is forever grateful for the experience.
Following his time in Overload, Jordi has continued to pursue his passion for music as a solo artist, appeared on UK series such as Stage School and The Only Way is Essex, built an impressive resume of modeling experience, and is now set to continue to expand his career overseas to the United States.

Fire is my first solo single that I released earlier this year. It was amazing to give the fans a hint of what’s to come with my music. Fire is about two people who meet who find that instant attraction to one another which creates a spark between the two. I’m now back in America writing and recording new original music. I want this new music to be more personal and to give insight into who I am, not just as an artist. I have recently just finished filming the second series of Stage School which is currently airing on E4. This season has been dramatic but productive with all aspects of the industry. Fans will be able to see me sing not only as a soloist but as a duo and in group, etc. Also I have wrapped on my first feature film called Dead Ringer which is based around a world wide famous boyband with some troublesome problems to overcome. It’s an action film set in the murky underside of the pop music industry. I play Darren a member of the fictitious international boyband D5 – the film will be out 2018!
