Last night Jake Quickenden waved goodbye to The X Factor 2014 after being voted off the show and today he talked about his exit on This Morning.

Talking Eamonn and Ruth earlier today Jake said, “I’m alright… there’s nothing really to be said about it. I’ve been on a great journey and here I am.”

During the interview Jake admitted to being disappointed with himself and said, “I’m a bit let down I didn’t get to show myself at my full ability. With a guitar.”

When asked if he thinks he was better than some of the contestants left behind. Jake diplomatically said, “I think everybody’s great in their own ways. I maybe didn’t perform to my best on Saturday, and that’s why I’m sat here. But I didn’t think it was as bad as the judges made out. There were a few bad notes but when you’re on the stage in front of ten million people and you [feel like] you’ve got a gobstopper at the back of your throat, its hard to sing to your best. It really is. It’s so nerve wracking…”

Jake went on to reveal that he still plans to pursue a career in music, “I’m not the kind of person to give up, so I’m going to keep slogging at it, and if you want something hard enough and as much as I do then I’ll keep working and hopefully it’ll come.”

He went on to say, “It’s an amazing platform it really is, and anything can happen now… and I’m willing to get my fingers in anything and hopefully I will and the future might be bright.”
