Handsome X Factor star Jake Quickenden is single and ready to mingle in I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here

X Factor reject Jake Quickenden is single, ready to mingle and even up for a fumble with a MILF on I’m A Celebrity..Get Me Out of Here.

The 26-year-old is replacing TOWIE star Gemma Collins on the show alongside former Tory MP Edwina Currie.

Speaking ahead of his trip Down Under, the Scunthorpe-born stud said: ‘I am currently single. We broke up about a month ago. I just really want to concentrate on my career now. But if there was a dream girl in the jungle you never know.’

And he’s not fussy it seems, he added that he’d quite like to hook up with a hot mum. What out Kendra Wilkinson!

‘I haven’t necessarily got a type. I love a MILF every now and then,’ he continued.

We predicted that Jake was set to go into the jungle a while ago and we were right. After becoming the third finalist voted off The X Factor, I’m A Celeb could be just the boost Jake needs to kickstart the music career he’s always dreamt of.

And judging by the topless shots of him topping up his tan before he went in, he’s sure to set campers and viewers’ pulses racing.

And Jake promises fans plenty of nudity too, which isn’t surprising considering he’s already stripped off for Now.

‘I love nudity. I was always naked on The X Factor,’ Jake says. ‘Course I will get nude in the shower.’ Whoop whoop.

Fitness freak Jake is planning workouts in camp to help him struggle through any sexual frustration – and although he may have a cheeky kiss, he wouldn’t have sex as it would be ‘morally wrong’ to do in front of the cameras he reckons.

Gemma sensationally quit the show on Wednesday morning after deciding jungle life wasn’t for her.

There’s been a huge backlash on Twitter with trolls plying the TOWIE star with weight jibes – as there’s speculation she might have been planning to leave all along.

There are also rumours of her being paid despite only lasting three days. Something tells us Jake is going to be on better form anyway…

I’m A Celebrity… 2014 continues tonight on ITV, lets hope Jake takes a shower.
