Jake Quickenden, a contestant on last year's X Factor series, has announced a gig in Dublin next month.

The singer - who also appeared on last year's 'I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!', where he placed as runner-up - will play The Academy 2 on August 9th.

He'll be plugging his new EP 'I Want You', which is out the same day as the gig.

Tickets are €13.50 including booking fee and on sale this Friday at 10am from usual outlets. A limited number of VIP tickets are available for €25, which include "priority access to the show, the opportunity to watch sound check and a meet and greet with Jake."

The gig is over-14s.
