Jake Quickenden has shared the happy news he's set to become a dad.

The Dancing On Ice winner and I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! star is expecting a baby with his girlfriend Sophie Church.

"I'm so excited to be a dad," the reality star, who first found fame on X Factor, told HELLO!

"It's something I've always wanted to do and I feel completely ready for it."

This will be the first child for the couple, and Sophie is already mum to her son Freddie, six, from a previous relationship.

"Jake will be such an amazing dad," Sophie, 27, added.

"Just seeing how he is with Freddie, I know that he will be brilliant and completely hands on."

The couple began dating in 2018

Discussing his relationship with Sophie's son Freddie, Jake added: "Freddie is a little legend."

"He's like my best mate. I met him when he was four, but I don't say that I'm his dad because I'm not and he's already got a really great dad.

"He's got me used to being around kids and it will be so nice to have my own child, too."

Jake found fame on the X Factor before appearing on I'm A Celeb! and Dancing on Ice

Jake and Sophie began dating in 2018, shortly after the singer broke off his engagement to Danielle Fogarty.

He was first linked to Sophie, hailing from Essex, before she appeared briefly on Celebs Go Dating.

She was set to go on a date with Love Island's Eyal, before he changed his mind, and ended up picking someone else.
