Popstar wannabe Gabriella’s is from Greece and her dad is English. She lived in Greece for two years when she was 7. Moving back to the UK, Gabriella attended the Gillotts School in Henley-on-Thames, making her the only MIC star not to go to private school.
A singer-songwriter, Gabriella started writing her own songs and singing at the age of 8. She performed in a modern musical opera at the Henley Festival that was written for her at age 13, and studied dance at school and then at Performing Arts in London.
She’s already had a number 1 hit single in Greece with her song Hit the Road Jack. Joining the first series of MIC in May 2011, Gabriella’s part of the Ollie-Binky-Cheska party gang. She was dating Ollie Locke for 9 months before he revealed to her, in front of the cameras and hence the whole nation, that he’d prefer to date men. Ouch. Maybe she can write a song about it.
