Stereo Kicks Star Jake Sims Laughs Off Naked Selfie
Jake Sims insists public reaction to nude photo has been positive...
While many celebs who've seen their naked photos plastered across the web recently have been the victim of hackers, Stereo Kicks' member Jake Sims only has his own youthful stupidity to blame.
The 19-year-old X Factor hopeful admitted that he'd posted his own naked selfie on social media back in 2012 - before realising his foolishness and deleting it.
However it must have been stored away by somebody - because it emerged again this week to leave him red faced.
He told The Sun: "I was young and stupid when I posted that picture. It's bad enough when you send a picture to someone and they leak it but I've no one but myself to blame.
"It was embarrassing and I was worried it would affect the band negatively. But most of the guys just high-fived me and the fans commenting just said, 'Impressive'.
"Joking aside, people should know that if they take these pictures they can get out there."
It has been reported that mentor Louis Walsh will be culling two members of the eight-strong boy band.
