Reports state that Jake Quickenden is currently dating I’m A Celebrity winner Carl Fogarty’s daughter Danielle.
The X Factor finalist came runner up to Carl in the I’m A Celebrity final in December, and has apparently made a quick move on Foggy’s eldest daughter Danielle after they met behind the scenes in Australia.
The Sun newspaper reports that Jake even spent Christmas with Danielle and Foggy at their house.
This news of a new girlfriend comes after claims that Jake had dumped his ex girlfriend to appear on I’m A Celeb back in November. But his ex girlfriend Victoria only found out that their relationship was over after Jake had entered the jungle.
“He turned up on I’m A Celebrity and she read interviews saying they’d broken up because Jake wanted to focus on his career,” a friend said at the time.
Therefore it comes as no surprise that he is trying to keep his latest romance out of the public eye.
“It’s very early days. He went up to stay with Carl, and he and Danielle have spent a lot of time together,” a source said today. “They’ve grown very close and really like each other. They are taking it very slowly because they don’t want to ruin their friendship and he’s just come out of a relationship.
“He has been welcomed with open arms by the family and they’re having a lot of fun.”
Danielle however suggested to the newspaper that the pair were only friends, saying: “He keeps coming up to the family home. He’s part of the family now.”
