Now performing under the name CharliLui, Aidan frequently shares photos of himself pumping iron at the gym.

The reality star has built up some huge muscles and now sports a big, bushy beard – but is still following his creative arts dreams.

Aiden might have hung up his dance shoes, but he is now happy spitting rhymes as a rapper and singer.

Back in his BGT days, Aiden won high praise from the judges – with Amanda stating he “blew her away” with his dance performance.

Head judge Simon gushed at the time: "I think you're better than any dancer on this show, you are super, super, super talented."

Now Aiden frequently shares videos of himself working out at the gym – with scenes showing him squatting, lifting, and pushing weights.

Fans would be forgiven for thinking the star had taken to torturing himself as his videos often show him battling against weights in an effort to smash personal records.

Alongside a recent video, he wrote: “Back day at @ultraflexgymdurham. I’m not sure what hell looks like, but I imagine it feels very similar to this drop set.

“Thanks @anthbailes for a very humbling session, sick 3 times (of course) but we still finished strong.”

While other video clips from the star show him showcasing his music skills – which followers have branded: “dope”.

He also flaunts his impressive tattoo collection online

Aiden has also used his Instagram page to show off his impressive collection of tattoos – which includes a huge design covering his back.

Taking to social media previously, he sent an appeal to have the already huge design increased even more.

Posing facing away from the camera, he wrote: “Anybody fancy finishing my back piece? That space on the left annoys the soul out of me.”
