Richard Madeley and David Ginola are the household names in Gwrych Castle, but every year there are some I'm A Celebrity contestants who are less widely known.

Radio 1XTRA's Snoochie Shy may fall into that category, but she has a loyal following after landing her late night show two years ago.

She has 124,000 followers on Instagram and over 25,000 on Twitter.

Snoochie, 29, is also a presenter on YO! MTV Raps, and has live-hosted on red carpets including for the MOBO awards and has been a presenter for Red Bull and fashion brand Misguided.

Snoochie has DJed around the world for brands such as Adidas, Topshop and River Island.

Snoochie is competing against her fellow celebs to gain the title of Queen of the Castle, and she's certainly hopeful of getting as far as her fellow DJ pal.

As she follows in the footsteps of fellow DJ Jordan North by joining I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! this year. But for those of you who don't know her, here's what you need to know…

From real name to nickname

Her real name is Cheyenne Davide and she was born on June 13, 1992, in London. She was given the nickname 'Snoochie' as a child by her gran.

"My nan used to call me Snoochie when I was younger and it was just a name that stuck with me, really, when I came to work," she explained.

However, she saw that her nickname actually meant you'd left your carrot in the fridge, which certainly raised some eyebrows.

The radio host searched the nickname on Urban Dictionary and was certainly shocked with what she found.

But due to her nan calling her it all her life, Snoochie decided to stick with it.

She added: "And Shy, my real name is Cheyenne so it's short for Cheyenne. But I am a little bit shy as well!"

'Husband'

Snoochie got 'married' to British rapper Michael Dapaah, better known as Big Shaq, during the music video for his 2018 hit Man Don't Dance.

The pair walk down the aisle, with Snoochie wearing a glamorous white dress, but it was just for show and they are not an actual couple in real life.

They turned it into a running joke and the pair continue to refer to each other as "husband and wife."

Celebrity mate

Snoochie appeared on Celebrity Gogglebox alongside presenter Jeremy Vine in series three.

Although some viewers were baffled by the pairing, the pair are genuinely mates. They have been spotted out together and Eggheads host Jeremy later said: "I am friends with Snoochie Shy and I got to spend time with her which is great."
