Jake said: "It started off really slow because I wanted to concentrate on trying to do well and stuff and she was cool and then all of a sudden the past month or so it's gone to the next level.

"She's a diamond, she's beautiful and she's nice and it's just going really well."

Jake and Danielle were romantically linked in January. The pair mer after Danielle jetted out to Australia in December to support her dad Carl, aka Foggy, who was eventually crowned King of the Jungle.

Jake came runner-up to Foggy on I'm A Celeb last year.

"We kind of met briefly at the after party and just talked," he explained. "Nothing really and then Christmas time we started messaging and stuff and I went and met her and her sister for a drink."

However, Jake was in for a little surprise while talking to Lorraine, as she played him a voice message from Foggy!

In the recorded message, Foggy joked: "I'll be watching you! When you have your sunday roast here sometimes, try helping now and again, clearing up. I know you were a bit lazy in camp but back home you should try and help out a little bit mate!"
