The 29-year-old hunk - who shot to fame on 'The X Factor' in 2012 - has revealed the ice skating competition has caused his backside to firm up and swell, and he's "very happy" about it - as is his fiancée Danielle Fogarty.

Speaking on 'Loose Women' on Thursday (01.02.18), Jake said: "Everything hurts. Ice skating is one of those sports where you are working muscles that you never knew you had. My bum has doubled. It has got so hard. I am well happy."

Asked if his girlfriend is pleased, Jake - who is partnered with professional skater Vanessa Bauer on the programme - laughed: "Yeah."

Whilst Danielle - who is the daughter of former motorcycle racer Carl Fogarty - might be impressed that her beau's bum is in good shape, that doesn't mean she's been getting much action in the bedroom, as he has revealed he's on a sex ban.

He spilled: "I hope Danielle's dad ain't watching this.

"So, I heard Jason say that it helps, due to my groin injury ... I heard Jason say a lot of boxers don't do it, a lot of sportsman don't do it, they are not supposed to do it."

Asked if he's noticed a change in energy levels since giving up lovemaking, he said: "No, no difference at all."

Meanwhile, Jake has invited his 'Dancing on Ice' co-stars to his wedding, including Kem Cetinay and Brooke Vincent.

The singer said previously: "I've already started inviting everyone. It'll be at the end of the year.

"Danielle's looking for dresses. She's doing most of the organising as she's the boss."

Jake says he hopes people vote him in for his skating talent, not just his good looks.

Asked if he likes the raunchy outfits he has to wear, he said: "Who doesn't want to dress up and wear sparkly stuff? But it's pretty freezing on that ice so hot pants are a no. I've done the topless thing in the jungle. I want people to vote because of my skating, not because I'm flashing the flesh."
