The 'X Factor' star's fiancee Danielle Fogarty has revealed it's been "tough" for them to get frisky between the sheets while he's been training for the skating show but she's looking forward to it coming to an end this weekend so they can reunite.

Speaking to The Sun Online, she said: "It's been tough on us and, to top it off, ice- skating has given Jake a rock-solid bum - he's now got a better one than me."

Danielle has also refused to send her man any sexy pictures while he's been away as she'd rather show him what he's been missing in person when he returns home.

She explained: "He can see it for his own eyes when he's back home, rather than just a picture on his phone."

Jake will go up against Brooke Vincent and Max Evans in tonight's (11.03.18) final and, although he's the favourite to win, he suffered a set back earlier this week when he accidentally dislocated his thumb during training.

Taking to his Twitter account at the time, he said: "So I hurt my thumb today had to go for xray and MRI scan but I will [100 per cent] be skating on Sunday, I have not come this far to let a sore thumb stop me! Thanks for the nice messages. (sic)"

Viewers were no doubt hoping that Jake would pull out something spectacular for the final considering he was awarded the perfect score - 40 out of 40 - by the judges last week, but he's decided he'll now have to "play it safe" because of his painful thumb.

He explained when a fan asked why he'd had an MRI scan on his thumb: "Dislocated so just being on the safe side with lifts and stuff mate (sic)."

And, although he spent all afternoon in hospital, Jake couldn't wait to get back on the ice and professional skater Matt Evers has praised him on his "work ethic."

He tweeted: "Today this one @JakeQuickenden injured his thumb quite badly. He went to A&E, X-ray, scans, cleared and braced up.

"He then got straight back on the ice. Nothing is gunna stop him. His attitude is incredible and work ethic is second to non. #believe #achieve (sic)"
