Meet the line up
Best known for: Malique plays Prince McQueen in Hollyoaks and joined the cast in 2016.
Before he joined the Channel 4 soap, he starred in the BBC series The Dumping Ground and attended Oldham College where he studied acting.
Malique had been rumoured to be entering the infamous jungle for weeks and was seen arriving at Brisbane airport today.
He previously told Metro.co.uk in October that ‘if it DID happen, it would be a good experience and a life changing one as well!’
A TV insider told The Sun: ‘Jungle producers were keen to snap up a young star with a fresh following to tune into the show.
‘Malique is over the moon about the gig and has been hitting up the gym already to make sure his body is as buff as possible by the time he goes to Oz.
‘He knows this is a huge opportunity and wants to make sure it’s as fruitful as possible.’
Best known for: Rita is famed for playing Roxy Mitchell in EastEnders for 10 years from 2007 to 2017.
Her character was killed off in dramatic scenes alongside her older sister Ronnie Mitchell, played by Samantha Womack, on New Year’s Day two years ago when they both drowned in a hotel swimming pool.
The actress isn’t the only famous member in her family as her uncle just so happens to the billionaire businessman Lord Alan Sugar from The Apprentice.
Best known for: Presenting DIY SOS since 1999, as well as various game shows including Who Dares Wins and Perfection.
Nick has been a BBC regular and has been involved with various TV projects for the channel.
He has also hosted Last Choir Standing, Break the Safe, Real Rescues, Secret Fortune and Wildest Dreams.
His biggest success remains as DIY SOS which has now been running for 28 series with over 200 episodes.
Nick Knowles also released his own music album last November with Every King Of People entering at number 92 in the UK charts.
Best known for: Her role as Alya Nazi in Coronation Street which she has played since 2014.
Following her arrival on the ITV show the actress has become a regular part of the ongoing soap.
Before her breakthrough role she had worked as a receptionist in London and then had a part in one episode of the BBC’s medical drama Doctors, playing Nina Chopra.
When asked if she was worried about the jungle, she told The Mirror: ‘I never think you are scared of anything until you get there. I just want to have fun. Depending on who I am around I am quite outgoing.’
Best known for: Emily originally found fame in C4 comedy hit The Inbetweeners, in which she played Charlotte Hinchcliffe – although she’s also been seen in the likes of Dad’s Army, Rock and Chips, Tracey Ullman’s Show and The Keith Lemon Sketch Show.
She’s no stranger to the celeb reality circuit either, having appeared on Dancing On Ice in 2010.
Emily’s also been in the headlines recently after being linked to Strictly’s Seann Walsh – who was accused, in the wake of that show’s snogging scandal, of having a series of ‘liaisons’ with the actress during his five-year relationship with ex-girlfriend Rebecca Humphries.
Neither of them have confirmed or denied the accusations.
Best known for: Appearing as The Chase’s fearsome Governess, one of the show’s ‘chasers’ who aim to try and outdo the contestants in the general knowledge stakes.
She’s also well-known Down Under, having appeared on the Australian version of the show.
Best known for: Although John may have tried to launch a singing career after taking a number of lead roles at both the West End and on Broadway, we feel that he really rose to fame when he played Captain Jack Harkness in Doctor Who.
After presenting the children’s programme Live & Kicking, the star went on to capture the nation’s heart as the Time Agent Captain Jack, and even has his own Doctor Who spin-off show: Torchwood.
Since then, Barrowman has presented Animals At Work, appeared in the movie Legends Of Tomorrow, and is now set to return to CW’s Arrow, as Malcolm Merlyn.
