Hollyoaks actor Malique Thompson-Dwyer is on I'm A Celebrity 2018 so here's everything you need to know about the 20-year-old soap actor from his relationships to his acting career.
I'm A Celebrity 2018 is introducing Malique Thompson-Dwyer to the jungle this year but what do we need to know about the Hollyoaks actor?
Setting up camp alongside the likes of James McVey from The Vamps, X Factor's Fleur East and Harry Redknapp, the actor is one of the youngest in the jungle at just 20 years old.
Here's everything you need to know from whether he has a girlfriend to his most-famous role:
Malique has played Prince McQueen on Hollyoaks for the past two years and has also appeared in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword in 2017.
The soap a actor has been given time off by Hollyoaks' bosses to take part on this year’s show and he will return to the soap afterwards, saying he's looking forward to some time off:
"I have been quite full on with filming on Hollyoaks recently so it’s going to be nice to have a little break – but obviously a very different kind of break".
Originally from Oldham in Greater Manchester, he now lives with his friends in Liverpool- but says he still sees his mum all the time!
As well as being very up for doing as many trials as possible, Malique also says he'll be the joker of the camp and admits he likes playing pranks, but will steer clear of becoming camp chef.
“For me eating testicles is going to be the worse. I am quite picky with my food so that’s going to be hard!”, also admitting that he's pretty claustrophobic.
Nope, Malique is a single man and says that although he isn't looking for love in the jungle, 'if it happens, it happens', so watch this space!
I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! launches Sunday at 9pm on ITV
