During an appearance on today’s Good Morning Britain, the 2018 skating champ, 29, was eager to chat about the upcoming national tour.
‘There are a few surprises in there,’ he revealed. ‘I actually sing a little bit as well. I’ll be singing and skating. I say that – it’s more like singing and sliding.’
However, after taking a quick look off-camera at his PR team, he then tried to backtrack for his error. ‘Oh, I don’t know if I was supposed to say that, he grimaced. Then sheepishly replied: ‘The press guy is like “aaah”.’
Having made stand-in presenter Kate Garraway, 50, giggle, she said: ‘The press guy has just gone, “No more, no more!”‘
The debut show takes place tonight in London, with the likes of Max Evans, Ray Quinn, Kem Cetinay, Cheryl Baker, Alex Beresford, and Donna Air taking part.
However, DOI skater Matt Evers, 42, shared a video of Jake on Twitter earlier this week prior to Jake saying a word, captioning it: ‘One of many perks of this @DOI_Tour ….. @JakeQuickenden’

Aside from all the singing and skating, Jake revealed that things were set to get steamy on the ice, with a Chippendale routine around the arena.
‘It’s just for fun,’ he clarified. ‘We’re just skating around and it’s like a Chippendale thing. The guys knew about it so they shouted, “Lads, take your tops off!”
‘So we were all in the mirror shining our arms up. But no-one’s abs are real apart from Max’s!’
Speaking about his optimism for the show, Jake said: ‘It’s going to be great. Hopefully, there isn’t going to be any falls or anything like that.’
Originally, there was some worry whether Jake would even make the final at all, after dislocating his thumbs just says before the series final. Thankfully he was raring to go when the final came and went on to scoop the winner’s trophy.
