Malique Thompson-Dwyer: It'll be nice to have Hollyoaks break

Share article:

Malique Thompson-Dwyer is looking forward to having a "little break" from "Hollyoaks" when he takes part in "I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here!".

The 20-year-old star is taking some time out from the Channel 4 soap - on which he plays Prince McQueen - to appear in the Australian jungle-based show after a recent "full-on" filming schedule.

He said: "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!

"I am taking some time out to do this but when I have finished, I will be back. It's nice to go on "I'm A Celebrity" as me rather than as my character, Prince."

Malique is hoping he can do the "Hollyoaks" fans and his family "proud" Down Under.

Speaking on the show's official Instagram account, he said: "My "Hollyoaks" people, I really want to do you guys proud, my mum proud, my family proud, and just the Hollyoaks village."

While Malique is excited about getting started on the show, he is feeling "nervous" because he has so many phobias.

He added: "I'm excited but nervous, too. I've got a phobia of insects, spiders, and stuff like that, rodents, rats and snakes. Everything really.

"The one thing I'll probably be scared of is probably the heights, because I get really nauseous being on balconies and stuff like that, so I can imagine what I'm going to be like flying from a plane."
