The 29-year-old Dancing On Ice champion is said to have split from his fiancée last month, seven months after announcing their engagement.
They met through Jake’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! co-star and Danielle’s famous father Carl Fogarty back in 2014.
Revealing all to Express.co.uk amid the split rumours, the dashing star, who recently joined male stripping troupe The Dreamboys for their 2018 tour, admitted he sometimes finds having his personal life in the limelight difficult.
“People’s opinions aren’t always going to be amazing on you,” he said.
“That took me a little bit of getting used to because I don’t really ever want to offend anyone or do anything to upset anyone.
Certain things in your life should be private and they do remain private
“But the way I am, sometimes people might not like it,” he continued.
“Certain things in your life should be private and they do remain private,” Jake said. “But when you are in the public eye it’s hard to do that.
“They don’t always stay private.”
However, after previously steering clear of addressing claims about his relationship status, Jake went on to explain his approach to living life in the public eye.
“It’s just about showing people what you are,” he said. “People see your photographs on Instagram and think you live the perfect life.
