The 24-year-old has been linked to last year's contestant Vicki Gordon...
It looks like Jesy Nelson’s ex Jake Roche may be ready to move on.
The couple split in November, just over a year after getting engaged in a romantic proposal at Manchester Arena.
The Little Mix singer is already rumoured to be dating bandmate Perrie Edwards’ new man Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s BFF Bradley Churchill (*deep breath*), and now Jake has reportedly sparked up a romance with The Voice‘s Vicki Gordon.
Jake, 24, is said to have met Vicki – who auditioned for the singing contest as part of duo Vicki and Scott last year – at his dad Shane Richie’s pantomime in Southampton.
A source tells The Sun: ‘Vicki had a friend in the panto in Southampton and she ended up meeting Jake at drinks after the show.
‘They hit it off straight away and bonded over their recent break-ups, as she had split from her boyfriend days earlier.
‘Jake was being a real gentleman, telling her she was a gorgeous girl and giving her loads of confidence. She met Shane too, who was joking she needed to look after his son.
‘At the end of the night they kissed, exchanged numbers and he even offered to drive her back home to London.
‘It’s early days but it’s the first girl Jake has been interested in since the break up, and with Jesy dating again, he wanted to start the New Year by moving on.’

Vicki even shared a snap of herself and Jake partying with pals in Southampton over the weekend.
Jake and Jesy, 25, first started dating in 2014. They got engaged after Jake popped the question during a Little Mix rehearsal in July 2015.
While neither of them have revealed the reason for their separation, Jesy recently opened up about how ‘horrendous’ break-ups are.
With that in mind, we’re just glad to see both of them looking a little happier again.
