The mother of rugby union player Levi Davis made an emotional appearance on Wednesday’s edition of Good Morning Britain, to appeal for information about her missing son.

Levi – who many might recognise from the 2019 series of X Factor Celebrity – has been missing since October last year.

He was last seen leaving the Old Irish Pub on La Rambla, Barcelona, having arrived in Spain from Ibiza a day earlier.

During Wednesday’s GMB, Levi’s mum Julie Davis told Susanna Reid: “Before he left, there was a message – I don’t know, maybe it was powers from up above – that said to me, ‘Give him a hug because you just don’t know if this is going to be your last chance’.”

Reaching across the desk to comfort her guest, Susanna pointed out that GMB reporter Nick Dixon had recently been in Barcelona, and had seen “so much effort being put into finding Levi”.

“The police are on it, we’ve seen the signs around on lampposts, podcasts,” the presenter continued.

Julie also spoke about the difficulties she’s faced due to her son going missing abroad.

“I’ve had a lot of support from family and friends, and of course the private investigator’s been working very hard,” she explained through tears. “And the Spanish police have done their bit as well.

“But where it’s been quite difficult is not having the information coming through, because, of course, there’s the language barrier and having to sort of go via the British consulate… the feedback of news or updates is very slow.”

“Julie, we’re all with you,” Susanna said at the end of the interview. “We’ll keep on it and our hearts are with you, honestly. Lots of love.”

At the end of the interview, GMB cut to an ad break, and when the show returned, guest anchor Ed Balls was seen presenting solo.

He explained: “Susanna has just stepped out with our previous guest, Julie.”

Following the segment, a post was sent on the official Good Morning Britain Twitter page, which read: “The family are appealing for anyone with any information on Levi’s whereabouts to come forward. Call 08001939333.”

Good Morning Britain airs every weekday from 6am.
