COMEDIAN Joel Dommett has become a regular on our telly screens since appearing on I'm A Celeb in 2016.
Here's everything you need to know about the funnyman, who currently hosts The Masked Dancer on ITV.
Who is Joel Dommett?
Joel, 35, is a stand-up comedian and TV host.
He was born in Rockhampton, Gloucestershire, on June 8, 1985.
Before appearing in the jungle, he was known for his 2010 role as D.C. Sweeney in the hit E4 show Skins, but he has also had other acting and TV gigs – in addition to touring as a stand-up comedian.
He appeared in BBC Two series Popatron and in 2011 he hosted Live in Chelsea, a discussion show revolving around Made in Chelsea.
And as a member of the National Youth Theatre, he had a role in 2008 drama The Edge Of Love.
The comedian also appeared in Impractical Jokers UK from 2013 to 2014 before becoming a panellist on Sky 1's Bring the Noise in 2015.
Joel has devoted most of his life to comedy and performed his first gig at 19.
In March 2019 he took part in All Star Musicals which saw him belting out show tunes before a panel of judges.
The funnyman has hosted The Masked Singer since 2020 and is now hosting it's spin-off – The Masked Dancer.
What's his net worth?
Internet reports suggest Joel is worth £2.4million, although this is just speculation at this stage of his career.
It is believed he received around £25,000 for his stint on I'm A Celeb in 2016.
But Joel is expected to be earning much more today as he's become one of British TV's most popular stars.
Who is Joel Dommett's wife Hannah Cooper?
Joel may have been single when he entered the jungle, but he's now found love with stunning model Hannah Cooper.
He was first seen out with Hannah in May 2017, and they have posted a naked picture together.
They later revealed that their love story had a very modern start – Hannah sent him a message on Instagram back in 2016.
And the happy couple tied the knot on September 10, 2019 in a ceremony held in Mykonos, Greece.
Love Island narrator Iain Stirling performed the ceremony.
Discussing the wedding with OK! in February 2020, Joel said: "It was honestly so fun.
"I was fully prepared to say it was the best day of my life and pretend it was – because I've been lucky enough to do Bake Off and I've had these amazing experiences in my life – but it was genuinely the best day of my life!
"We had 28 people there. Some people have weddings where half the day is saying hi and bye to people. I wanted our closest friends and family to have a wonderful time."
What happened to Joel in I'm A Celebrity 2016?
Joel went into the jungle as probably the least recognisable of the celebrities in camp – but early indications suggested that wouldn't last long.
He got off to a fine start, entering into a flirty rapport with former Countdown boffin Carol Vorderman – a potential match that received the backing of Joel's ex.
Joel also made a big impression when called upon to do his first Bushtucker Trial, conquering his fear of heights to scale a 100 ft crane and bring the maximum 10 stars back to camp.
The comedian kept the camp entertained with his stand-up routine and had a lucky escape when a poisonous snake slithered next to his bed.
His witty antics also proved very popular with the ITV viewers – he eventually came second in the series, losing out to Queen of the jungle Scarlett Moffatt.
How was Joel involved in a sex tape scam?
Joel was among a string of public figures to have had an intimate video of himself splashed across the net.
The footage, recorded during a Skype call, saw Joel engaged in a solo sex act in his own home.
The Sun revealed that a host of celebrities, including a Hollywood actor, have fallen victim to the scam, known as 'catfishing'.
But in December 2016, when his fame rocketed on I’m A Celebrity, the video went viral, leaving him mortified.
The woman Joel believed he was interacting with was, in fact, a pre-recorded video.
He addressed the episode in a characteristically lighthearted manner with a 'letter from his penis'.
The statement, released on his Facebook page, explained: "Joel was Catfished a long time ago by somebody pretending to be someone else on the internet and was lured into Skype sex.
"That Skype sex session turned out to be entirely fake and has come back to bite Joel in the ass (Joel’s Ass is a good friend of mine and also features in the video).
"It’s a genuinely horrific thing for another human being to do, to take advantage of what is private of someone's life and make it public for everyone to see."
