Jake is on the cusp of becoming a huge TV star but before that became a reality, he met former England footballer Wayne Rooney at the 2011 Glastonbury Festival when he was just 14.
Wayne wore a black rucksack and a black cup and put his arm around Jake as they posed for a snap.
The star posted the picture with the caption: “#Throwback #GlastoFest #2011 #Wayne”
Jake hails from Weston-super-Mare and the confident lad is keen to find a girl who looks like reality star Billie Faiers.

He said about the mum-of-two: “My ideal woman is Billie Faiers. She is my dream woman.
“I think for a laugh once with the boys, I messaged her. I can’t remember what I messaged her.”
“Then when lockdown hit, I was single. The opportunity is there, you might as well take it by the horns and go for it.”

Speaking to ITV ahead of going into the villa, Jake said: “Looks wise, always gone for blondes.
“But for me, the main thing is having respect and having good fun, and someone who will be loyal to you.
“I’ve had messages from girls that have got boyfriends and husbands. This is why I don’t trust anyone.
“Someone who is loyal really. But when I’m single, I like having a good time!”
