The show he’ll be a part of is Stand Up Sketch Show, and a source told The Sun that the red-headed star is “excited” to venture into the world of acting and comedy.
They continued: “Jack has never done anything like this before. It’s all new to him.
“He was super nervous but since filming has begun he’s really started to enjoy it.
“His dream would be to land a role on a national soap or in a big movie.”
And Jack is working alongside some very famous comedy names on the ITV show too – including Seann Walsh and Joel Dommett.
Jack entered Love Island during the Casa Amor part of the show, but failed to find love.
Jack’s the only son from Ronan’s first marriage to wife Yvonne along with sisters Missy and Ali.
Ronan and Yvonne split in 2015. and the singer then had two children, Cooper and Coco, with current wife Storm.
Jack’s dad Ronan, 45, voiced his support for his young son on the show in a two-word social media post.
Taking to Instagram, the Irish singer reposted his son’s Love Island announcement, writing: “Let’s go”.
Talking about his dad before heading to the villa, Jack said: “He will be watching when I’m on it for sure.
“He’s buzzing for me, me and my dad are very close, we’re best mates.”
