Jake Quickenden grins in hospital bed after gruelling four hour surgery on his arm ‘for Celebrity SAS injury’
JAKE Quickenden gave a thumbs up from his hospital bed after gruelling four-hour surgery on his arm – seemingly for an injury sustained while filming Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins.
The 32-year-old star was in high spirits as he was given morphine to cope with the pain, sharing upbeat videos from his room to his Instagram Story.
Despite the big operation, Jake’s focus for the day appeared to be getting some grub after he’d been banned from eating anything from 7am this morning.
After coming round, the hunk told fans how hungry he was as he introduced them to his nurse – and later looked pleased to have been delivered a club sandwich.
In a photo posted to his Instagram grid, Jake is wearing a hospital gown and has an oxygen mask over his mouth and nose.
He is giving a thumbs up while a tray of food lays on a table in front of him, including the sarnie, crisps, a bread roll, and some juice.
He captioned the post: “Straight out, straight on the club sandwich.
“Op went well, ended up being under four hours!!
“Pretty high right now but we good!! Road to recovery begins… Blesses.”
Earlier in the day, Jake had posed with his leg in the ear to show off the hospital stockings that he had to wear for the op.
He joked alongside the snap: “I asked for fishnets and they said no…. I’ve never felt so sexy, do you wear underwear in the gowns….. asking for a mate!!”
Although he did not confirm what the surgery was for, The Sun revealed last month that he may need to go under the knife after ripping muscles in his pectorals and biceps while filming Celebrity SAS.
The star was forced to quit the show due to his injuries, which came as he hoisted heavy objects out of water.
A source told us at the time: “The injury is quite serious and Jake could have to go under the knife to try to rectify it.
“He was pulling a boat out the water during one of the challenges and tore his muscles.”

The Sun Online have contacted Jake’s rep for comment.
Jake is currently preparing to become a father for the first time with his girlfriend Sophie Church announcing her pregnancy last month.
The pair have been together since June 2018, and previously suffered a tragic miscarriage last year.
Sophie is already mum to six-year-old Freddie from a previous relationship, who Jake has had plenty of practice parenting with.
