Kieran Alleyne has quit 5 After Midnight.
The 22-year-old musician shot to fame after performing with his friends Jordan Bruce Lee and Nathan Lewis on UK talent competition 'The X Factor' in 2016 where they finished in third place, but the star has now revealed that just over a year after competing on the show, he is set to go it alone as a solo artist.
In a message posted on Instagram, Kieran said: ''Hi guys.
''I wanted to thank you for all the support and love you have given me over the years.

I wanted to tell you that I have made the difficult disicion to leave the band 5am and 110% focus on becoming a solo artist off the back of the recent changes. I love the industry its my life. I wish Nathan and Jordan every success and they will be superstars in their chosen paths too so please continue to support them and 5am. I want to thank everyone who has supported us and me on the journey. (sic)''

He added: ''The next chapter has started now and I have been working with some amazing writers and producers on my music.
''2018 will be a great year and I will be working my heart out to achieve my dream.
''Love you all. (sic)''
