Jake Quickenden wants X Factor gig
Jake Quickenden says he's waiting for Simon Cowell to call him about nabbing the 'X Factor' hosting gig when the show returns to screens later this year
Jake Quickenden wants to present 'The X Factor'.
The 27-year-old singer, who competed on the show in 2012 and 2014, is waiting for the big boss Simon Cowell to pick up the phone and offer him the sought-after gig as he believes he's the perfect match for the popular role.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, Jake said: "Ohhh give me a ring, Simon. I'd love to do that. I love presenting and TV and anything where I'm learning new stuff."
The handsome star would even consider postponing his nationwide tour, which kicks off in September, if it meant he could front the weekend singing competition.
He explained: "I haven't (checked if the tour clashes with 'X Factor') but I think I'd be able to work round it if I got the 'X Factor'. I'm sure I'd be able to put my tour on hold. Music is obviously my passion but I'm not ruling anything out."
Meanwhile, for now, Jake is concentrating on the release of his new single 'Blindfold', which has been written in memory of his late brother Oliver - who passed away from bone cancer - and his forthcoming second EP.
He added: "I've been concentrating on writing this (EP) so now it's written, see how it does and if anything comes in then I'll definitely take it."
