They’re social media superstars


by Hannah Mellin |

Max and Harvey are pretty much social media superstars, so it’s hard to miss their online presence. However, if you're not completely up to speed on the duo since their X Factor: Celebrity appearance in 2019, we're here to give you the lowdown...

Who are Max and Harvey?

Identical twins Harvey Kitt Mills and Max Lucas Mills are best known as singers Max and Harvey.

The duo rose to fame posting singing videos all over social media but their following increased dramatically when they appeared on The X Factor: Celebrity in 2019, where they reached the final alongside Megan McKenna and Jenny Ryan.

The pair began singing when they were just eight years old and went on to have careers in the West End and a short film for Channel 4.

They then joined musical.ly (the old TikTok basically) in 2016 where they began creating lip syncing videos to Shawn Mendes and Bastille songs. In 2017, they landed their very own CBBC documentary My Life: Max & Harvey, a documentary produced by the duo, which gave fans an inside look into their lives and career.

They went on to release their debut single One More Day in Love in December 2016, shortly after their rise to fame.

The twins then released a cover of DJ Snake and Justin Bieber’s Let Me Love You in January, 2017, which gained them millions of views on YouTube

After releasing more music, Max and Harvey took part in The X Factor: Celebrity and came second. Since the show, they have gone on to host their own podcast School Daze with Max & Harvey, release even more music and become Charity Patrons for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity. They also have a HUGE following on social media, boasting almost 1m Instagram followers and 6.4m Tik Tok followers.

Busy boys, eh?

Things went downhill super quickly after the high of winning the first ever series of The X Factor, and Steve's still bitteru2026 even now, 12 years later.

Come on now Steve, perhaps you should give it a read.These days he's more into childish rants on Twitter about, well, pretty much everything except making music.

In 2021, they released In my DNA, an emotional tribute to their grandfather, who was diagnosed with Alzheimers.

Speaking about the single, they said, “This song means more to us than anything we’ve ever put out into the world.

“We wanted to tell our Granpop’s story and talk about his life and it took us a long time to work out the perfect way to do that.

“Whilst writing the song we also had in the back of our minds, the sad fact that our Grandma had been diagnosed with cancer.

“Sadly she recently passed away, but we were able to play her this song before we lost her, and when she heard it she started to cry.

“The fact that she knew right away exactly what the song was about meant a lot to us, and we’re so sad she couldn’t be around to see the world hear it.”

The pair are also active on Instagram and TikTok where they post song snippets and hilarious videos.

Max and Harvey's most recent public appearance was at the Nickelodeon Slimefest at Blackpool Pleasure Beach Arena alongside other celebs like Fleur East, Diversity and Wes Nelson.
