JAY McGUINESS

SINGER

Hailing from Nottingham, Jay and at the age of 19 was one of more than 1000 people who auditioned for Jayne Collins who was looking to put together a new band, after having previously created the girl band, The Saturdays, and Jay joined the boy band, The Wanted in 2009.  Their debut single, All Time Low, went straight in to the UK charts at number 1, and they have since had other top 10 singles, including another number 1 with Glad You Came, and three albums, including the platinum selling, Battleground.  The band announced they were taking a break at the beginning of 2014. 

Jay will be taking part in the thirteenth series of Strictly Come Dancing and will be dancing with Aliona Vilani.
