Malique – who has a young daughter – competed in the latest I’m A Celebrity series last year alongside Harry, who was named King of the Jungle, and the pair got on well during their time Down Under.

Their pals are said to be “pleased” that Malique and Molly – whose father is Harry’s son Mark – have hooked up.

The insider added to The Sun Online: “They make a cute couple and everyone is really pleased they have remained close since the show, especially because Harry got on so well with Malique in the jungle.”

Malique and Molly are said to have struck up a close bond at the Gold Coast’s five-star Versace Hotel, where the celebrities stay with their families when their time on I’m A Celeb is up, and they also sat next to each other on the 45-minute coach journey to the wrap party.

There, they bonded further and partied alongside the ‘Oaks actor’s fellow campmates Emily Atack, 29, and Sair Khan, 30.

Malique’s newfound love isn’t the only post-jungle romance which has been hotting up of late.

James McVey popped the question to his partner Kirstie Brittain earlier this month, and even took Harry along to help him choose the engagement ring.

He said: “Harry said he knew a really good jeweller whenever I was ready to do it and I thought, I may as well just do it.”
