Booking Agent | Jake Quickenden | Dancing On Ice Winner 2018

The X Factor

He first auditioned for the show in 2012, where he sang “Use Somebody” and received four yeses from the judges. In bootcamp, he along with fellow contestants Adam Burridge and Robbie Hance sang “How to Save a Life”. The judges decided to put him through to judges’ houses where he was in the Boys category mentored by Nicole Scherzinger. However, he was not selected for the live shows.

He returned two years later for Series 11 where he sang “All of Me”, but was stopped and asked to perform his second song, “Say Something”. Quickenden received positive comments from the judges for his second song and gave him four yeses to proceed to the next round.
In the arena audition, he performed “Who You Are” by Jessie J. Quickenden received good comments from the judges. Head judge Simon Cowell commented that he was not a big fan of previous contestants returning since there was usually a reason for them being sent home, but said that he was not judging in the 2012 series and that Quickenden should not have been eliminated. The judges decided to put him through to bootcamp. He was again in the “Boys” category with Mel B as his mentor.
In the six-chair challenge of bootcamp, Quickenden sang “A Thousand Years” and his mentor gave him a chair and proceeded to the next round. At judges’ houses, he sang “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic” and was put through to the live shows.
In week 3 he landed in the Bottom 2 against group Only The Young and was eliminated, with only his mentor voting to save him.

Following his first participation in the show, he obtained a job presenting on music channel Chart Show TV.

In January 2018, it was announced that he would be a participant on the revival series of ITV’s ice skating show Dancing On Ice. He went on to win the series ten weeks later, beating Coronation Street star Brooke Vincent in the final.
