Jake said during his This Morning interview: "Boot camp was a crazy experience. Nobody expected Robbie Hance to pull out. We rehearsed throughout the day while Robbie was on the sofa for three hours.
“We rehearsed into the night and thought we could nail it.
"When Robbie stopped in the audition I was trying to listen to the song and get it right. It was crazy.
“Every year I thought about auditioning but would come up with an excuse. This year was perfect because we could sing our own music and play the guitar.
"Every lad put through in my category is amazing and are the best bunch ever.
"If I don’t make it through to the live shows it is not my time.
"I would audition again if I did not make it through."
