X Factor's Jake Quickenden To Join I'm A Celebrity?
Hunky singer reportedly among late signings for reality show...
With just 10 days to go until this year's series of I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! hits the small screen, speculation is mounting about who's heading into the jungle.
And the latest hapless recruit reported to have been snapped up for the ITV show is recent X Factor reject Jake Quickenden.
The Sun reports that the hunky singer has already inked a deal to appear in the jungle - where he'll face terrifying challenges and irregular dinners (probably a bit like being on X Factor then).
A source said: "Jake was a big hit on The X Factor and not just because of his voice. He's going to be the male eye candy in the jungle and a potential love interest for some of the female stars.
"ITV usually refrains from signing up reality stars unless they're household names. But they've made a special exception for Jake.
"Jake is hoping to get at least a modelling deal out of it. Plus, if a jungle relationship comes his way, he wouldn't exactly be discouraging it."
Gemma's involvement was rumoured some time ago - but her flight is now claimed to be booked.
A show source told the paper: "Mel and Gemma are two great names who will be very familiar to ITV viewers.
