Hollyoaks actor Malique Thompson-Dwyer and footballing legend Harry Redknapp struck up quite the friendship in the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! jungle. The 20-year-old and the 71-year-old found they had quite a bit in common, and Malique seemed to look up to him as a sort of grandfather figure during their stint in Australia.

Unfortunately, Malique was second out of the jungle whilst Harry went on to win the show, so they didn't get to spend that extra week together - but if the rumours are true, they could be spending a whole lot more time together in the near future!

According to the Mirror, Malique was seen getting very close to Harry's granddaughter, Molly James-Redknapp, at the I'm A Celeb wrap party on Monday night.

The publication reports that the pair were chatting together for over an hour at the pre-party drinks, and later walked arm-in-arm before quickly pulling away after spotting photographers.

They added that Molly sat with Malique on the 45-minute coach journey to the venue, rather than sitting with her family, and she even stayed on at the party after grandad Harry left.

Although there isn't any information available on Molly's relationship status, Malique did profess himself to be single ahead of heading into the jungle, saying, "I am single and I’m not looking for it (love in the Jungle) but if it happens, it happens."

Ooh er!

Harry Redknapp was crowned King of the Jungle on Sunday night's finale, with Inbetweeners actress Emily Atack coming second and actor John Barrowman MBE coming third.

I'm A Celebrity: The Coming Out Show will air on ITV on Wednesday 12th December at 9pm.

When he was SUPER blunt about Malique's departure

When he spoke about the time he ran Sandra over

Harry unfortunately wasn't being super observant two years ago, and told his campmates, "I used to think I was a good driver but I had a nightmare and ran over my wife one day. She got out the car and I thought she'd crossed the road and I pulled forward and she fell into the road and a bus stopped literally yards away and the most amazing part of the story probably, my grand-daughter is sitting on top of the bus and sees all of this. Unreal."
