Who is Jake Williams?
Jake Williams is a 70-year-old pensioner who has been living “off-grid” in a remote forest for four decades.
He set up home in a cottage in the Cairngorms, a mountain range in Scotland, 40 years ago.
He’s a former seaman, who has two cats, no TV, and enjoys the diet of roadkill stir-fry.
In the episode that will air on January 26th 2021 on Channel 5, Williams reveals that he never intended to live on his own for so long, but he has survived: “I’m happy and I love my wild, but I would like to share my life with someone else.”
Jake Williams jokes about marrying a Kardashian
Even though hermit Jake Williams doesn’t own a TV, he’s familiar with the Kardashians and their reach.
Williams opens up about his failed marriage and his desire to find a partner: “I was married years ago but it fizzled out.”
“I’m getting older and I’m going to need some young people to help me run the place. I’m going to marry a Kardashian and have loads of children. Seriously though, I would like to meet someone pleasant,” Williams claims.
