Jay grew up in Newark and since then has become best known as one fifth of the massively successful boyband 'The Wanted', a winner of "Strictly come Dancing" and has performed on stage in the West End, including in "Big the Musical".

He continues to be passionate about supporting children and young people in his home county.

“The Children's Bereavement Centre is a fantastic charity.  It makes a genuine difference and is a huge help to hundreds of local families every year.  I believe that every child or young person affected by the death or terminal-illness of someone they love, should have access to free high quality support and I am proud to be a patron of a charity that is providing this.
