REALITY TV star Jake Quickenden walked 100 miles in 36 hours in memory of his younger brother who died from bone cancer.

Jake, who lives in Boxted, took on the 100-mile walk from Liverpool to Skipton to support the Sarcoma UK charity in memory of his brother Oliver, who died in 2012 aged 19.

He walked alongside Chris Metcalfe whose brother Rob died in February 2022, four years after he was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.

The X Factor star Jake is a celebrity ambassador for Sarcoma UK and ran the London Marathon for the charity while dressed as a huge bone last year.

The 35-year-old said his latest effort was “the most challenging thing I’ve ever done” as he shared a video of him celebrating with his three-year-old son Leo after finishing his epic challenge on social media.

“In a bad way right now,” he told his Instagram followers. “Be back in a week or so when I can walk.”

Chris said it was “fantastic” to walk the 100 miles with the Dancing on Ice winner.

He said: “My feet may be sore but it was worth every step to walk 100 miles for Sarcoma UK in memory of my brother Rob – and it was fantastic to be joined by Sarcoma UK ambassador Jake Quickenden, who is such a great supporter of this charity.

“One thing myself and Jake found ourselves saying while walking is that we were doing this because we had the choice to do a 100-mile walk. Rob and Oliver don't.”

Sarcoma UK’s chief executive, Richard Davidson, said: “Chris Metcalfe’s 100-mile walk from Liverpool to Skipton in memory of his late brother Rob was an incredible effort – and to be joined by celebrity ambassador Jake Quickenden was brilliant.”

“We are grateful for Chris and Jake’s inspirational efforts, which will undoubtedly make a difference for patients and their loved ones impacted by this disease."

The pair’s walk has raised more than £21,000 so far, and Jake raised more than £12,000 for Sarcoma UK when he took on the world-famous London Marathon last year.
