Jake Quickenden is starting a podcast about becoming a dad

Jake Quickenden is starting his very own podcast about becoming a new dad.

Alongside friends Marcel Somerville and Jamie Jewitt, Jake has created the podcast called ‘It’s not all dad’.

In the new show, the trio will discuss what it was like becoming a parent for the first time.

They will also share hilarious parenting fails as well as tips and advice for anyone expecting a baby.

Jake, who lives in Colchester and found fame on The X Factor and I’m A Celeb, welcomed his first child with girlfriend Sophie Church earlier this year.

Since Leo Oliver was born in February, Jake has been very open about how he has found parenthood.

He has shared his struggles with lack of sleep, fears of not being good enough and many other common new parent issues with all of his followers.

Jake has been praised a number of times for his honesty, and for standing up to vile trolls who have abused him online.

Announcing the news of the podcast on a new Instagram page set up for it, Jake wrote: “Coming to take over this podcast game.

“Me @jamiejewitt_ and @marcel_rockyb felt maybe there wasn’t a lot of information out there for new dads, about how we felt and the struggles we came up against, feel very proud that this will be an honest account of how we are feeling, talking about our journeys, families and struggles.

“Hope you love it as much as we enjoy recording it. If it helps one person we are doing a good job, we are no means experts and that’s not what this is about, if anything it’s the opposite and admitting the things we didn’t know and what has shocked us.

“Thanks everyone who has followed the account, please share and I can’t wait till you can listen. Much love the boys.”
