I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here star Jake Quickenden has moved in with his new girlfriend Danielle Fogarty - the daughter of his campmate Carl Fogarty - after a "crazy" romance sparked by the show.

The couple met at the after-party in Australia when Fogarty was crowned King of the Jungle with budding singer Quickenden runner-up.

Quickenden (26), a former contestant on the X Factor, said: "I didn't go to Australia looking for a girlfriend. We only spent a little bit of time together at the after-party, but of course she's a beautiful girl and I'm only human so I was attracted to her.

"We had a bit of a dance and we got back in touch when we came back to the UK.

"And now here we are, boyfriend and girlfriend."

Danielle said she was attracted to Quickenden when she saw him on the show and sparks flew when they met.

Her father, a former World Superbike champion, said he approved of his daughter's choice.

He said: "I spent a lot of time getting to know Jake in the jungle. He wants to make something of himself and get somewhere with his music. He's not afraid of hard work and he's very motivated. I admire that about him."
