Jake Quickenden Split

The Dancing on Ice winner is now back on the market after splitting from Danielle Fogarty.

TV personality Jake Quickenden, 29, has split from his girlfriend Danielle Fogarty, 26, after only seven months of engagement.

The pair were reportedly spending some time in Rome when the decision to call time on their relationship became a reality. This comes less than a year after he proposed to the marketing executive on his 29th birthday. 

According to The Sun, Jake's new friendship with Love Island star Kem Cetinay has rocked the boat between he and Danielle, after the amount of attention he gets on nights out with his new found friend.

The source revealed: "Jake and Danielle have been joined at the hip since her dad introduced them. But winning Dancing On Ice has meant Jake’s had other priorities. He’s been touring the country with Kem on the show’s tour and getting a lot of female attention, which hasn’t been easy for Danielle."

With Jake now part of The Dreamboys clan, this has also reportedly added even more stress to their relationship. The source added: "Things aren’t going to get any easier...with Jake set to join The Dreamboys strip group. It’s caused a lot of friction and they’ve both decided to take a breather...the wedding is very much off now." 

Jake was introduced to Danielle after his stint in I'm A Celeb in 2014, where he met her father - motorbike champion and jungle winner Carl Fogarty. 

He and Danielle reportedly hit it off straight away, and have enjoyed an whirlwind three year relationship, but failed to see it through to marriage.

Jake has enjoyed his fair share of reality shows; after two stints on X Factor, the second attempt saw him make it to live shows, and after that he came 2nd in I'm A Celeb. He also appeared on adrenaline-fuelled show The Jump, before being crowned Dancing On Ice champion last year.
