X Factor and I'm A Celebrity star Jake Quickenden has hinted we may be seeing him again on our screens, but this time as a TV presenter...

He's used to taking to the microphone to showcase his vocals, but now Jake has teased he'll be picking up his mic once more for an entirely different purpose.

Telling Reveal he might have a few TV plans in the pipeline, the 26-year-old said: "They might involve holding a microphone and talking."

Speaking at this year's NTAs, Jake insisted music is still his main priority and he is hoping to release an album, but if things don't take off he wouldn't say no to turning to TV.

"TV is another option. I do like meeting people and talking rubbish," he added.

Attending the same bash as his former X Factor mentor Mel B, we asked Jake if he still kept in touch with the Spice Girl.

To which he replied: "Yes, she text me to say well done for the jungle and I asked how everything is, she said fine. Hopefully we'll stay in touch. She's a legend."

It was a successful night for Jake as both shows he was supporting - The X Factor and I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here - took home gongs.

While X Factor won 'Most Popular Talent Show', I'm A Celeb was titled 'Most Popular Entertainment Programme'.

Pleased to be reunited with his jungle pals, Jake was seen chatting away to his co-stars as well as planting a kiss on TOWIE's Gemma Collins.


Following his star-studded night out, Jake took the time this morning to congratulate the shows that have put him in the spotlight.

He tweeted: "Can I say massive congrats to @antanddec @imacelebrity and @TheXFactor @SimonCowell worthy winners last night two amazing shows."
