Jake Quickenden feared that he wouldn’t be able to hold his baby son after sustaining a serious injury while filming Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.
The 33 year old star was one of four celebrities that had to withdraw from the Channel 4 series on Sunday.
The action was filmed before Jake’s son, Leo, was born in February of this year and saw the star suffer a horrifying injury as he was being pulled out of the ocean in a speedboat as part of a challenge.
The former X Factor singer ruptured his pectoral and his bicep, with Jake revealing that “basically both tendons were ripped off the bone.”
Jake’s horrific injury had him immediately thinking of his coming child, he revealed to PA Media.
He said: “As soon as I’d got injured, I looked at it and thought ‘Right, here we go. I’ve got something else to get over now, I’ve got to get back to normal, I’ve got a baby on the way.
“I didn’t have Leo at the time and I thought ‘I don’t want to be not able to hold him,’ so I need to get this operation done and get back to normal.”
Jake revealed that if he hadn’t sought surgery for his arm, he would only have 10-15% strength in it.
Jake’s time on the show came to a crushing end after he suffered the injury and the star broke down in tears after learning his injury wouldn’t allow him to continue the challenge.
Jake later posted on Instagram: "Didn't end how I wanted…. Believe it or not I was loving every second, I found out exactly what I needed to know about myself!!
"'I will always give 100% and I said the only way I would leave the show is in an ambulance and unfortunately that's what happened…. I'm back to normal now after a year of pain and physio!!"
Jake revealed the news of his son Leo’s arrival on his Instagram account in February, when he posted: "ITS A BOY ….. meet Leo Oliver Quickenden.
"I am so overwhelmed right now, but first I want to say Sophie [his partner] you’re amazing and watching you during all this made me love you even more, I already know you’re an amazing mum and cannot wait to raise this beautiful little baby with you!!
"I also have such a mixture of feelings, I’m so so happy but also feel a little sadness my dad and brother are not around to meet my baby!!"
