2014 could end up being a very busy year for* X Factor* reject Jake Quickenden.

Jake, who got the boot from the ITV show two weeks ago, has signed up to go into the I’m A Celeb jungle, according to* The Sun.*

If these rumours are true, Jake would become the first ever contestant to star in both of ITV’s flagship shows in the same year.

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.

“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.

“ITV usually refrains from signing up reality stars unless they’re household names. But they’ve made a special exception for Jake.”

We’re not surprised – can you imagine Jake ripping his khaki gilet off and showering under a waterfall?
