James McVey, the lead guitarist from The Vamps is entering the I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here jungle in Australia on Sunday. Before he does so, CelebMix is taking the time to look at his anti-bullying campaigns and life when he was younger.
James has always been open about his life as a child and the bullying he experienced growing up. In August he opened up on ITV’s Lorraine about his childhood and he exclaims that it nearly made his give up being in the music industry. James spoke about the bullying campaign before the new school year started so children would know that it is okay to speak up.
From this James McVey received lots of support from his fans and parents across the globe through all social networking platforms. With many twitter users commenting “So proud of you”.

Since then James has been comforting children and teenagers about bullies, whether that be at school, at home or on social media. He has then helped them with their next steps of to confront the bullies or who to go to. Whilst being in The Vamps James has always tried to have his say and always given his advice on how to stand up to bullies and act on social media. LBC Radio interviewed James about his help and why he wants to help.
So now with James McVey entering the jungle, we hope that this brings out his campaign and shows children that no matter what happens there will always be a stop to bullying if they use their self-confidence. McVey is an excellent example of just this; he ignored his bullies, followed his dreams, used his self-confidence and is now representing all children and teenagers across the globe who have to face this every day.
CelebMix cannot wait to see James in the jungle and we also praise James with all his efforts in his campaign. Let us know your thoughts on twitter, @CelebMix
