Jake Quickenden wants to dance on Strictly Come Dancing

Jake Quickenden is up for competing on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 27-year-old heartthrob shot to fame on 'The X Factor' in 2014 and then went from the talent show straight into the jungle on 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' on which he finished as runner-up to Carl Fogarty.

As Jake - who is in a relationship with Carl's daughter Danielle - has an unquestionable reality TV pedigree he has now started to think about his next challenge and thinks he would do well on the ballroom of the BBC programme.

He said: "There was speculation around me doing 'Big Brother', but that isn't the case. I'd love to do more TV and presenting. I'm keen to do 'Strictly...' too."

Jake has been watching and enjoying the current series of 'The X Factor' and thinks this year's crop of singers are really good.

The hunk will forever be grateful to the show and boss Simon Cowell for giving him a showbiz career.

Jake - speaking in his role as an ambassador for Holland and Barrett's ( sports nutrition range - said: "'X Factor' really did contribute to making my hopes and dreams come true. This year has been good, I've actually been blogging on the series. I think there is some great talent on the show ... Simon Cowell is incredible at what he does; he is undoubtedly one of the wisest men in showbiz."
