Jake will been seen flying out to Dubai this weekend for judges' homes, where he'll be performing for a spot in the live shows.

His mum Lisa Quickenden said this week: "Our life is a roller coaster at the moment with a lot of highs and then some real low points.

"I was really proud when Jacob asked me to go to his This Morning interview."

Speaking to This Is Scunthorpe, Jake's mum added: "The attention Jacob is getting is unbelievable and none of us can comprehend it.

"He is just an ordinary lad and we are all very proud."

Jake meanwhile was sure not to give too much away about how successful he was in the competition.

He said: "I watched the show on Saturday and even though I knew I got through I was still very nervous.

"Boot camp was tiring and emotional. I looked like a zombie at the end of it, I was so pale. I am sure they announced my name last because I looked so nervous.

"It was very scary but I was so happy to get through."
