A second opportunity for X Factor hotly followed, where he was eventually chosen by Mel B for Judges houses winning a coveted spot on the live shows.

Then followed a whirlwind few weeks which saw Jake enter ITV’s ‘I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here.’ With his natural charm and personality, he was eventually crowned runner-up in the fourteenth series of the reality show.Now returning to his first love music Jake will play in Belfast this August.
