Jake Quickenden (X Factor 2012)

X Factor wannabe Jake Quickenden has admitted he's loving the attention from the girls that the show brings!

The 23-year-old lifeguard confessed he didn't know why everyone thought he was cheeky, but wasn't complaining about the compliment!

"I don't know why everyone thinks I'm cheeky, I think it's because I'm chatty... and I smile," he said after his audition.

He added: "Hearing the girls scream at my audition... when I look in the mirror I think I'm alright I guess!"

Meanwhile Jake revealed that his mum is hoping for him to appear one another reality show rather than The X Factor.

"My mum does support me, but if Corrie or Eastenders or Emmerdale is on, it's 'Shut Up Jake!'," he said. "My mum said if I do OK in X Factor, I can go on Dancing On Ice! I said I'm not going on Dancing On Ice!"

Jake performed Use Somebody by Kings of Leon for the panel at auditions in Manchester last night, making it through to bootcamp with four yeses.

"Jake, the lifeguard, I’m quite excited by that audition and the ladies seem to absolutely love you," said Tulisa.

Gary gushed: "Jake I thought that was great, I love your voice, I love your image, I thought it was a great song choice for your audition today, you were fantastic well done."
