Last week X Factor’s Jake Quickenden told Metro newspaper that he would like to enter the jungle, well it seems his wish has been granted.
Jake was voted off X Factor last month but it seems he has already got another prime time TV gig.
The Sun reports that Jake has signed a deal to be on this years series of I’m A Celebrity Get Me, despite being famous only lasting three weeks on The X Factor live shows.
“Jake was a big hit on The X Factor and not just because of his voice,” a source dubiously claimed. “He’s going to be the male eye candy in the jungle and a potential love interest for some of the female stars.”
They explained: “ITV usually refrains from signing up reality stars unless they’re household names. But they’ve made a special exception for Jake”
Jake is said to be interested in launching a new career off the back of I’m A Celeb.
The source said: “Jake is hoping to get at least a modelling deal out of it.
