A hermit who has lived “off the grid” in a in a tumbledown woodland cottage for 40 years says he’s ready to settle down if he can find the right woman, and has set his heart on one of the Kardashian sisters.
70-year-old Jake Williams set up home in his courage in the Cairngorms hoping that it would grow into a hippy commune, but it didn’t work out. Now he lives alone, dining on roadkill and dreaming of marrying one of the celebrity influencer sisters.
Until the perfect woman comes along the former seaman just has two cats for company.
Jake doesn’t own a TV, so he probably won’t be able to see himself on appearing on Channel 5 series Ben Fogle’s New Lives in the Wild which airs at 9pm tonight.
In tonight's episode, reports the Daily Record, Jake tells Ben he is an accidental hermit.
He said: “I never intended to live on my own for so long but I’ve survived. I’m happy and I love my wild life but I would like to share my life with someone else."
“I’m getting older and I’m going to need some young people to help me run the place," he adds.
"I’m going to marry a Kardashian and have loads of children. Seriously though, I would like to meet someone pleasant.
“I was married years ago but it fizzled out. Maybe if that book Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus was around back then I might still be married. I’m always hopeful.”
Jake grew up in Inverness and studied science at Aberdeen University, where he joined a commune before buying the cottage in the 1970s.
He said: “I’m one of life’s refugees and this just happens to be where I’ve ended up.
“I eat roadkill if it’s not too squished. It’s easy to find and the price is right. I’ve got a huge vegetable garden. I’ve never gone hungry and touch wood I never will.”
