My old man was bald and it suited him, I shaved my head and I looked like a peanut M&M, so unfortunately I don't suit a skin head.... I will take any stick anyone wants to give me aswell, because honesty I'm buzzing and couldn't care less about negative comments 😂!!Peace ✌🏽 A post shared by Jake (@jakequickenden14) on Not content with missing out on The X Factor crown twice, Jake tried out for I’m A Celebrity…He did, however, manage to star on the Australian jungle reality show and make it back in time to appear on The X Factor final to see Ben Haenow crowned winner there.In 2017, he signed up to act as a reserve for The Jump - the winter sports show known for the injury it causes the celebs who take part.The Sun exclusively revealed in March 2018 how Jake had met with Hollyoaks executives about potentially appearing in the Channel 4 soap.Jake revealed in August 2017 that he has begun a hair transplant procedure after experiencing severe insecurities over his hairline."I’m not talking about it because I want pity but I decided to talk about it to let people know you can come out of it and be alright.” Jake first tried out on The X Factor in 2012 where he sailed through the first round of auditions with a rendition of Kings of Leon’s Use Somebody – but he failed to impress Nicole Scherzinger at judges houses and she opted to take Rylan Clark to the live shows over him.Returning in 2014, Jake had slightly better luck – making it through to the live shows, but he then crashed out of the competition in the third week.
The ex I'm A Celeb contestant is celebrating his Dancing on Ice success by going on a string of dates with Made in Chelsea stunner Emily Blackwell. Jake Quickenden is a 29-year-old former X Factor and I'm A Celeb star.However Jake didn’t quite make it onto the slopes, despite several of the celebrities pulling out of the competition through injury.But Jake had much better luck on Dancing On Ice 2018 - winning the show with partner Vanessa Bauer.Sharing a progress picture on Instagram, Jake told fans: "So just incase anyone sees me and thinks it's Frankenstein, I've sorted my hairline out after years of insecurities, people might say your hair was fine and didn't need it, but after years of being really worried about losing my hair, I took the dive and did something about it!"Swelling and redness will go down after a week and then just get on with day to day life and wait for the results!!I did my research and found @kslhairltd they were great, professional and reallt put me at ease and I am delighted with how it has turned out!
