Jake Quickenden's girlfriend fell in love with his "inner beauty".
Things are moving fast between the former 'I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here' contestant and Danielle Fogarty, the daughter of Superbike racer Carl Fogarty and the blonde beauty has revealed it was Jake's bubbly personality which sent her head over heels.
Speaking about the first time she laid eyes on him in person, she said: "He was really skinny and his boots and his outfits were all over the place. They all had this really weird smell when they came out [the jungle]. It was really really bad. I saw the inner beauty."
When asked what drew her to him, she added: "Obviously his handsome good looks but his personality as well. You just fall in love with that. He's so bubbly, upbeat - constantly. Just really chatty and friendly."
And the 26-year-old singer and television personality sees similarities between himself and Danielle's father Carl.
He shared: "I think I'm quite determined like Carl; he's had an amazing career and he's such a nice guy. I've had a few knock-backs and I think if you want something, go get it."
When asked what he thought Carl liked about him, Jake - who tragically lost his father and brother to cancer - added to ITV's This Morning: "I've heard him talking a few times to a few people and he says really nice things. Obviously I've told Carl what's happened in my life, and he said, 'By what I've gone through, I'm a credit to still keep going and still trying to do well.'"
