Jake Quickenden: "Everything Passes"
By Ashley Cain
This week X-Factor Finalist, Prince of the Jungle and Dancing on Ice Champion Jake Quickenden steps into the studio. We all know Jake from our TV screens, he’s that handsome cheeky chappy who’s always lifting spirits and spreading laughter - I love this most about Jake. He really does have an infectious energy which can lift anyones mood. On the other hand, one other huge aspect of Jakes personality I admire, is his ability to be vulnerable and speak openly about his mental health. Jake tragically lost both his father and younger brother to cancer when he was in his early 20’s, which drove him to a dark place for many years. Today, Jake still holds the same love and pain for his father and brother, but now he better understands his emotions and how grief can be used to celebrate the love you still have for someone who is no longer here. In this episode we talk deeply about grief, the power of a fortified mind and the importance of attacking the day even when you feel like you can’t. Lets go champs.
