Levi Davis: Missing rugby and X Factor star ‘went abroad without clothes or cash’

Missing X Factor singer and rugby star Levi Davis “suddenly” left his friend in Ibiza to go to Barcelona by himself without clothes or cash, it has been reported.

The 24-year-old athlete was last heard from on October 29 when he filmed a video from The Old Irish Pub in Barcelona, near the tourist hotspot La Rambla.

His close friend Richard Squire, who lives in Ibiza, said the singer told him he was going to see friends and left abruptly with only a small black backpack.

He is said to have caught a boat from Ibiza to the coastal city.

Mr Squire told The Sun: “He announced suddenly that he was going to meet friends in Barcelona.

“But he didn’t say who they were and we haven’t heard from him since I received a video from the Irish pub on October 29.

“There’s been no word from him since and his family and everyone who knows him is getting increasingly worried.”

Levi, who has also starred on X-Factor: Celebrity and Celebs Go Dating, has been missing for eight days.

Worried relatives have reported him as a missing person to Spanish police, it is understood.

His mum Julie has also appealed for information, telling the Sun on Sunday: “Levi’s family and I are very worried about him and desperate to know that he is OK.

“Levi please get in touch with us or if anyone knows anything please contact us.

“Nobody has heard from him since Oct 29th when he was last known to be in The Old Irish Pub in Barcelona.”

Levi, who is currently playing for Worthing Raiders in the National League 2 South, started his career in 2017 at Bath before joining Ealing Trailfinders in 2020, initially on loan.

He became the first professional rugby union player to come out as bisexual in 2020.

And In 2019, the sports star performed on X Factor: Celebrity with fellow rugby lads Ben Foden and Thom Evans as Try Star.
