The former 'X Factor' contestant signed up to 'I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!' after his singing career failed to take off and became firm friends with Carl Fogarty. He later met and fell in love with Carl's daughter Danielle and the pair are now engaged.

Speaking about his reality TV career, he said: "I have built myself up a bit of a career from it, and I've come away with a beautiful fiancee. I pinch myself every day."

And he doesn't care if people call him a reality TV star.

He told the Daily Mirror: "I'm a normal guy from Scunthorpe who has had every job under the sun. I've worked in retail, I've been a bricklayer, I've worked in McDonald's, and then I'm offered these opportunities. I'd be stupid to turn them down.

"People always want to judge but I have a little snigger. We'll see what happens. The dream would be to get a regular presenting job where I don't have to worry about what's coming next.

"But I'm just enjoying the ride. I just think life's too short to take seriously."

And he wants 'Love Island' star and 'Dancing On Ice' co-contestant Kem Cetinay to be an usher at his wedding.

He said: "On 'Dancing on Ice' I have made genuine mates. Kem Cetinay said he wouldn't mind being an usher. I've already sorted that but he'll be coming.

"Brooke Vincent and her boyfriend, and I'll have a cheeky word with Cheryl Baker and see if The Fizz will perform."
