The X Factor: Celebrity is probably something we didn’t expect from Simon Cowell in 2019.
For fifteen years, viewers up and down the UK are completely accustomed to the show’s yearly airing on TV which leads us into the festive season.
However, 15 years of the X Factor and Simon felt like a switch up – and it’s a pretty welcome change, too.
A load of celebrities, who we never knew had the capability of singing, ditch their day jobs and get up on stage all in a bid to win a recording contract.
Jonny Labey is one of the celebs taking part in the 2019 show, so let’s get to know him a little more, from his beginnings in Jersey to his height.
Jonny Labey – height
With singing, dancing and acting under his belt, there’s not a lot Jonny can’t do. From the looks of his Instagram profile, it seems that Jonny’s also had some practice in Karate.
The 26-year-old is 5 ft 9. That makes Jonny the same height as X Factor judge Simon Cowell and taller than his fellow contestants Kevin McHale who stands at 5 ft 7 and Martin Bashir who is 5 ft 5.
