U.K. Pop Singer Jordi Whitworth on Going from ‘The X Factor’ to a Solo Music Career

Today we meet Jordi Whitworth, a 22-year-old musician, actor, and model from Essex, England who appears in an upcoming E4 Series “Stage School.”

Hello, my name is Jordi Whitworth! At the moment, I appear on a television series for E4 in the United Kingdom called Stage School, while also working on my own original music. I released my debut solo single, “Fire,” at the beginning of the summer, and I recently started filming my first feature film in London. I started my career in modeling and by becoming an extra on a few mainstream television shows in the U.K., but then I was asked to be in the BBC sitcom Big School with David Walliams and Catherine Tate. Shortly after, I became involved in the music industry after being scouted for the boy band Overload and subsequently appearing on The X Factor, which is where I truly found my passion for this line of work.

As for my personal style:

Jeans: Topshop Black Jeans (yes, the ones from the women’s section). I was originally introduced to the Topshop jeans by the stylist on The X Factor and loved them straight away. I love the skinny fit styles, and I’m always a fan of the distressed look to give it some more style. 

Shirts: Father Sons have a perfect fit. They are made from a lovely material, and have a fitted but also slightly longer size, which is my kind of style. 

Pants: Calvin Klein or Tommy Hilfiger.

Suits: I like Noose & Monkey suits because they have a nice quality, and I tend to try different things with patterns or materials. So if you are looking for a suit to stand out from the crowd, I highly recommend it.

Shoes: I get my shoes from a shop called Choice Men’s. They have a variety of styles and brands, so I can shop from a large variety all at once.

Accessories: I have this gold Versace necklace with a large pendant of their iconic Medusa head that I like to wear occasionally. It is definitely a statement piece, so I like to wear it when I’m wearing a simpler shirt so it balances out the look without looking too loud.

Outerwear: Canada Goose or Arctic Army. Arctic Army is this great company in the U.K. that makes custom-made fur parkas and bomber jackets. It definitely keeps me warm on those cold or rainy adventures. 

Favorite cologne: Creed Aventus. I think cologne is one of those things that give a look the final touch. Even though it isn’t something you can see, it gives you that confidence boost and that feeling of being ready to head out. I recently started using Creed Aventus, and I like that is has a masculine scent, but it is not one of those over powering musks. I honestly think I’ve gone through 30 bottles.

Favorite app: Instagram is my favorite app at the moment. I think sharing your life through photos is so much more interesting than just words. I also think the new live component is a great way to connect with fans. When I was traveling, I was able to spend time with them and show them a bit of what I was experiencing, and it felt like we were on an adventure together.

 Next style/gear purchase: Louboutin’s Aurelien Calf/Tisse Serre/Neopren. Anyone who knows me knows that I have an unhealthy love for trainers. These trainers are simple enough to go with a lot of different outfits, but also stylish enough to stand out and make a statement. I also like that they have a retro, athletic vibe to them.
