Reality TV star Jake Quickenden is dating Carl Fogarty's daughter after the pair met in Australia, following his appearance on 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here!'
Jake Quickenden is reportedly dating Carl Fogarty's daughter.
The 26-year-old reality TV star appeared alongside former World Superbike champion Carl on ITV's 'I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!' and struck up a friendship with his oldest child Danielle after the show ended.
A source revealed Jake has subsequently spent time at Carl's family home in Blackburn, Lancashire, saying: "It's very early days. He went up to stay with Carl, and he and Danielle have spent a lot of time together.
"They've grown very close and really like each other. They are taking it very slowly because they don't want to ruin their friendship and he's just come out of a relationship.
"He has been welcomed with open arms by the family and they're having a lot of fun."
Danielle admitted that she and Jake - who finished in second place behind her father on 'I'm A Celeb' after being voted off 'The X Factor' just weeks before - had "grown really close" in recent weeks.
She told The Sun newspaper: "He keeps coming up to the family home. He's part of the family now."
The pair were pictured together over Christmas and shortly after Carl emerged victorious from the jungle in December, he revealed Jake joked with him about his daughter.
He said at the time: "Jake asked, 'Is your daughter coming to the wrap party?'
"I think he was winding me up. Jake's a lovely lad."
