Reality TV star Jake Quickenden is reportedly set to appear on 'Dancing On Ice'

Jake Quickenden is reportedly set to star on 'Dancing On Ice'.

The 29-year-old reality TV star - who was also a contestant on the ninth and eleventh series of 'The X Factor' in 2012 and 2014 - is poised to appear on the revamped show when it returns to the air following a three-year break.

A source said: "Jake was a massive hit with the ladies during his stints on 'The X Factor' and 'I'm A Celeb'.

"Producers want him to bring the eye-candy to ­'Dancing On Ice' too. He hasn't got any skating experience but is already super-confident."

Jake's fearless attitude is seen as a major draw for TV bosses, and there's a perception that he'll happily take on whatever challenge is put before him.

The insider told The Sun newspaper: "He's fearless and they feel they'll be able to push him week after week."

Despite his outwardly confident appearance, Jake recently admitted he splashed out £5,000 on a hair transplant because he was "terrified" he'd look like Phil Mitchell.

The dark-haired hunk revealed he'd started feeling "paranoid" about his tresses every time he left the house.

He said: "I was terrified that I'd look like Phil Mitchell.

"I've got a hairline like Dracula with two triangles at the front. It has been in my mind for five years.

"Even when I was on 'X Factor' it used to take me so long to get ready because I'd think it was showing.

"I was so paranoid about it, I started buying sprays for my scalp to make it dark so you couldn't tell."
