The Hashtag Academy is progressing fast and strong, with day five now complete. Today we got to see the boys experience a slightly different test. They underwent a series of physical and technical drills designed to test their individual attributes.
Spencer, Devs and co. watched on as each trialist was put through a set of gruelling tasks. There was nowhere to hide, but plenty of places to run!
Let’s take a look at some of the best images from episode five of the Hashtag Academy…
