In latest Levi Davis news, there are fears the missing X Factor star ‘drowned in a port in Barcelona’.
According to reports, the rugby player’s mother Julie Davis was told by police they now believe a man reported drowning was her son.
Levi, 24, was reported missing in November of last year. He was last seen in a pub in the Spanish city at the end of October.
Levi was perhaps best known to TV viewers for taking part in 2019’s The X Factor: Celebrity. Alongside fellow players Thom Evans and Ben Foden, Levi performed in the group Try Star. He also appeared on E4’s Celebs Go Dating in 2020.

Levi Davis news update
Sadly, detectives reportedly think the Birmingham-born winger Levi may have gone under the water after visiting The Old Irish Pub and the Hard Rock Cafe on October 29.
Four crew members of a cruise liner docking at 6.30am the day after he disappeared told police a man in distress was wearing a light-coloured top, just like Levi. Furthermore, they claimed the man shouted for help several times in English.
It is believed a life jacket was thrown from the ship, and emergency sea and air rescue services also launched. However, those searches were later suspended as a body was not located.
Meanwhile, Levi’s passport was found 20 days after he vanished. And his mobile phone signal was last detected close to the port within hours of the sighting in the water. It was picked up near the main Sants rail station, suggesting he may have headed there after leaving the pubs he visited on La Rambla street.
