MALIQUE Thompson Dwyer reunited with his daughter in an adorable video as he returned home after roughing it in the jungle.
Clearly thrilled to be reunited with the apple of his eye, the Hollyoaks hunk shared the heart-warming clip to his Instagram.
Malique, 20, has been separated from his daughter – who he’s never revealed the name of – for over three weeks now and he couldn’t hide his excitement at being reunited with her.
The I’m A Celeb star threw the tot in the air and hugged her close to his chest and she looked equally thrilled to be back in the arms of her dad.
The actor captioned the heart-warming clip “Daddy’s home” and his 368k followers were quick to comment on how “adorable” their reunion was.
One wrote: “Nothing like a daddy’s love just adorable.”
While another cooed: “This melts my heart.”
And one fan declared that the clip was the “cutest thing ever.”
Malique – who was a teenage dad – is fiercely protective of his daughter and has taken measures to shield her from his showbiz life.
The star doesn’t even reveal the little girl’s name in interviews and only refers to her affectionately as his “princess” on his Twitter and Instagram pages.
The Hollyoaks star, who has 179,000 followers on social media, joined Instagram in 2015 before welcoming his daughter two years later.
After he welcomed the child in 2017, he admitted his life turned upside down as he adjusted to fatherhood.

He told his Instagram followers that year: “I’m not going to lie, 2017 broke me, matured me, whooped my ass, humbled me, blessed me, made me smarter and wiser.
“It showed me snakes are everywhere & family & friends are just titles if the love isn’t real.”
He added: “So basically 2017 was the best worst of my entire life. Here’s to 2018.”
However, Malique has shared snaps of the adorable baby and recently said about his blue eyed girl: “I reckon she’s too pretty to be my daughter”
But it seems like the toddler might not be the only lady in Malique’s life – the actor was said to be “inseparable” from Harry Redknapp’s granddaughter Molly at the I’m A Celeb wrap party in Australia.
The pair couldn’t keep their hands off each other – until they realised people were starting to take notice.
Though for now it looks like Malique only has eyes for his little ‘princess.’
