Jake Roche 'can't afford an engagement ring'

Jake Roche "can't afford" to propose to his girlfriend Jesy Nelson.

The 22-year-old lead vocalist of the band Rixton was rumoured to be preparing to propose to the 23-year-old Little Mix singer, but Jake has joked that his lack of money means he won't be getting down on one knee anytime soon.

He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "There are engagement rumours but at the minute I can't afford a hot meal, let alone a ring!"

Earlier this week, meanwhile, Jake joked that he only lasts "five minutes" in bed with Jesy.

He revealed: "I heard sex was really good for keeping fit but it doesn't kick in till after 15 minutes, so I'm f***ed!

"Five minutes and I'm done. No cardio for me, boys. I get exhausted just taking my trousers off."

The 'Me And My Broken Heart' hitmaker also admitted he enjoys being hit on by gay guys, saying he takes it as a "compliment".

Jake said: "It's a bit of an honour. The other day, a gay couple looked at us all and checked us out, and it was such a compliment. I kind of got a bit giddy, really.

"I'm such a t**t."
