Is Jake Quickenden Headed For HOLLYOAKS?!

X Factor and I’m A Celeb alumnus Jake Quickenden could be driving up the A41 to Chester sometime soon – as it’s rumoured that the guys and gals at Hollyoaks want the star to audition for the show.

Full disclosure: if this means Quickers will be getting his kit off more in 2016, we fully approve of this and will start a government e-petition to ensure a speedy resolution.

Jake’s aesthetic (being hot) is thought to fit in well with the rest of the cast, who, let’s face it, possess almost inhuman levels of attractiveness as it is.

A source close to the show told those girls and boys at The Sun:

“Jake has a decent following thanks to his appearances on top reality shows.

"He has the accent and can act, but appreciates this can be worked on.”

“Singing is his passion but the chance to appear in a top soap is appealing.”

I mean, as much as we’d love a Quickenden EP next year, we’d rather see him look quite fit in a suit, picking up ‘Best Newcomer’ at the British Soap Awards.

And if it worked for Shayne Ward on Corrie, why not our Jakey-Boy?

Neither Jake nor Hollyoaks has said anything on the matter so far, but we’re praying to the telly gods that this rumour turns out to be true.
