Jeff was voted off the show on Friday 20 July 2012.
Both Jeff’s parents enjoy singing and as a kid he remembers listening to them perform. He also used to travel to London to hang around the stage door at Les Miserables in the hope of seeing the cast.
Jeff taught himself to play the guitar when he was just 1. After finishing school, Jeff formed a band ‘Wanted Alive’, playing a mix of hard rock and pop rock.
Jeff starred as Jean Val Jean in a student production of Les Miserables. In 2011 he joined a local Operatic Society and took on the title role in a production of Jesus Christ Superstar.
As a teenager he had trials for Irish rugby teams, but by the time Jeff was 19 he had dislocated the same shoulder 22 times and so he decided to concentrate on music.
