Despite his X Factor exit, Jake soon jetted off Down Under, and with much speculation ITV confirmed that he was to enter the jungle as a late arrival alongside Edwina Currie.

Watching Jake on TV last night (24 November), former Spice Girl Mel tweeted: "Watching @JakeQuickenden in the jungle, he is just fab."

Before going in the jungle, Jake said the opportunity to take part in the show was a dream come true. He said: "Things like this don't happen to me. I am just a normal bloke. It's such an amazing show - I said 'yes' straight away."

Jake also said he was hoping the X Factor judges would tune in, adding: "I am sure they will have a little giggle. It will be pretty funny. At the end of the day I am not doing anything wrong."

Jake had to compete in a series of challenges called Critter Cube, where he was faced with green ants, cockroaches and even a snake draped around his shoulders!

Despite the obstacles, Jake confidently won all 10 stars for camp.
