So what do we know about the reality TV hunk? What happened when he was on The X Factor and when did he date Jane?

Here’s all you need to know.

Who is Sam Callahan?

Sam Callahan is a 23-year-old former barman from Essex who appeared on The X Factor.

Before appearing on Simon Cowell’s singing competition he was part of a group managed by Geri Horner, but left to try his hand at a solo career in 2011.

He has previously supported former X Factor bands Union J and District3 at gigs in Scotland.

Sam has also worked as a model.

When did Sam Callahan appear on The X Factor?

Sam appeared on The X Factor in 2013 – the year that saw former prison officer Sam Bailey triumph.

While he struggled to impress Gary Barlow with his rendition of James Blunt’s You’re Beautiful in his first room audition, he sailed through to the live shows.

But the young singer had upset X Factor bosses by selling his own merchandise online, which broke the show’s strict rules.

The merchandise included keyrings, t-shirts and mugs with either his face or initials on. He later closed down the site.

In week 6 of the show he was eliminated after Gary Barlow, Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh voted him off over Luke Friend.

When did Sam Callahan and Jane Park start dating?

The Sun exclusively revealed that Sam was dating Jane Park in March.

Sam and Jane found love with the hunky reality star after they sparked up a relationship over social media.

An insider revealed: “Jane instantly caught Sam’s eye on Twitter and after liking a ton of each other’s pictures they began messaging.

“They’ve made no secret of how attracted they are to each other and have been on a couple of dates already.

“It’s very early days yet but there’s a real connection between them.”

After their row following his public snog with X Factor reject Sohelia Clifford, and Sam’s claims that Jane was obsessive, the couple have split up.

What other reality TV shows has Sam Callahan taken part in?

Sam was rumoured to be heading into the Celebrity Big Brother house at the beginning of the year.

The Sun revealed that he is set to star in the next series of Ex On The Beach, although he was said to be thinking hard about that while he was in a relationship.

Jane would have laid down the law, considering the rules she had for her last boyfriend when he went on holiday to Ibiza.

Why did Gary Barlow block Sam Callahan on Twitter?

Sam was left shocked after a cheeky throwback snap of Gary Barlow resulted in him being blocked on Twitter by the former X Factor judge.

Wishing Gary Happy Birthday, Sam shared an old photo from a shoot of Gary, 46, with blonde hair and his arms crossed in front of him.

Next to it, he added a snap of him in a shoot for Gay Times, stood completely naked against a step ladder.

Sam wrote: “Wowie @garybarlow, nearly half a century! Happy Birthday old boy!”

The caption in the mag read: “Yes, undies-watchers, this is none other than Take That’s Gary ‘bleach blond’ Barlow caught – literally – with his pants down during a photo session early in the band’s career.

“As if that wasn’t bad enough, fellow Take Thatter Howard also joined him for some other pics.

“Everything changes, eh readers.”

Just an hour later, Sam added a screenshot appearing to show Gary had blocked him on the social media site.

He captioned the shot: “Erm.. Awkward.”

Indeed.
