Jake Quickenden has furiously slammed Instagram after the platform removed a topless image of him cuddling his stepson – twice.
The 32-year-old former X Factor contestant was left baffled on Wednesday when the social media site took down his latest post.
In the snap, that Jake shared with his 813,000 Instagram followers, the television star was topless in bed as he cuddled his stepson, Freddie.
The youngster – who is the son of Jake's girlfriend Sophie Church – was cuddled up to Jake and the pair appeared to be watching television.
However, Instagram deemed the post to go 'against community guidelines' and removed the Instagram picture.
In defiance, Jake re-uploaded the post alongside a lengthy message in which he slammed the platform.

"I find it baffling that @instagram removed this post for breaking guidelines, I see some s*** on this app, people half naked, fights, drugs the lot, and I put a positive post on about being a positive role model and coming into a little lads life and how hard it can be and the post is removed!!"Jake wrote.
"Sort your s*** instagram and don't remove positive posts that might actually help people…. so here's the pic!!!
He added: "And I will continue to be Fred's mate and help him in anyway I can along with the rest of his brilliant family."
A representative from Instagram has been contacted by The Mirror for comment.

It wasn't long before the post was quickly removed again by Instagram.
Jake then hit back by sharing an image of the message that he had received from the social media platform.
Alongside the post, he slated Instagram over the decision.
He added: "F*** you Instagram removing the post again…. a positive post, maybe get rid of all the sex bots and fake accounts or people buying followers and likes first before you delete nice positive pictures!!!"

Jake also asked his followers to go to his latest post and write "FU Instagram," justs for 'banter'.
