Dancing On Ice star Jake Quickenden fuels Strictly rumours with cryptic tweet

Former X Factor contestant and British singer Jake Quickenden has fuelled rumours that he could be set to appear on Strictly Come Dancing later on this year.

If he does appear on the BBC show this year it will be the second dance show Jake has appeared on after he was on ITV show Dancing On Ice back in 2018.

Back in 2018 Jake and his professional skater Vanessa Bauer went all the way to the final and won the show beating Brooke Vincent and Max Evans in the final.

Jake tweeted yesterday (Tuesday May 17) asking if anyone had done Dancing On Ice and then Strictly and that fuelled the rumours that he would have his dancing shoes on very soon!

He said: "Has anyone who’s done dancing on ice ever done @bbcstrictly just wondering."

Whilst several celebrities and professionals have done Strictly Come Dancing first and then gone on to do Dancing On Ice Jake could be one of the first people to do it the other way round.

However he will not be the first person as former Dancing On Ice judge John Barrowman competed in Dancing On Ice before he went on to do the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas special back in 2010.

John replied to Jake's tweet and said: "Yes I did dancing in ice 1st series and strictly Christmas special. Jb"

Fans were quick to pick up on the tweet and speculation is mounting surrounding the star appearing on Strictly this year.

One user said: "There’s always a first, Jake…"

Whilst another added: "I'd love to see you on strictly, reckon you'd be pretty good xx"

A third Twitter user also said: "Is that a hint that you could be doing strictly? You would be amazing!"

Dancing On Ice professional Mark Hanretty also picked up on the tweet but put himself in the mix confirming that he would say yes if Strictly came calling.

He said: "No but I’d love to."

While someone else quickly replied to the tweet and said: "Yeah you two should do it."

But it remains to be seen whether Jake will be popping up on our screens again later this year in an attempt to scoop the Glitterball.
