Jake Quickenden is eyeing up a role on the soaps following Dancing On Ice.

The former X Factor and I'm A Celebrity contestant is currently competing on Dancing On Ice.

But he's hopeful of a move from reality TV into acting, joining fellow DOI competitor Brooke Vincent who currently plays Sophie Webster on the soap.

“I would do it, I can act," Jake insisted. "I’ve had a year of acting lessons and it’s something I’m quite passionate about.

"Obviously I’m a fan of Sophie."

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Jake added: “If I had a screen test for Corrie, I’d go in and see how I did and if I got it, happy days.”

Jake is currently the odds-on favourite to claim victory during the Dancing On Ice final on Sunday night.

Jake goes into this weekend's Dancing on Ice final as the shortest priced favourite OF ALL-TIME, bookmakers Ladbrokes reported on Monday.

Now just a 1/6 shot to go all the way this year, the bookies can reveal that the former X Factor star's odds are shorter than any contestant ever to have featured on the 12-year-old show, a title previously held by double champion Ray Quinn - who was 2/9 back in 2014.

Having been the market leader from the word go, Jake is miles ahead of the competition as far as the betting is concerned, with Brooke Vincent (6/1) and Max Evans (10/1) seemingly set to battle it out for second spot.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: "Jake's taken to the ice like a duck to water - so much so that he's entered bookie record books as the shortest-priced favourite we've ever seen."

Dancing On Ice 2018 concludes with the live final on Sunday, March 10 on ITV.

The remaining three skaters will all skate one last time before viewers crown their winner.

ITV has already confirmed another series of Dancing On Ice to air in 2019.
