As the latest famous face to be heading into the jungle, fans want to know is Fred Sirieix married and who is his daughter? 

Joining the I’m A Celebrity 2023 line up, maitre d’ Fred Sirieix will no doubt bring a little je ne sais quoi to the camp this year. Admitting he’d happily eat frogs, the First Dates star “wouldn’t be too keen” to eat some of the grub served up at the cringe-worthy but kind of hilarious bushtucker trials.

Helping singles find ‘the one’ on the popular Channel 4 dating show, viewers have been left wondering if Fred has any luck in his own love life. Read on to find out if Fred is married, and everything you need to know about his famous daughter. 

Is Fred Sirieix married?

Fred Sirieix isn't married but is engaged to his Jamaican girlfriend whose name remains undisclosed, but whom is known on his social media accounts as "Fruitcake."

The 49-year-old Maître d’ has never been married, but was previously in a relationship with Alex Spendolini for 12 years. He revealed his relationship with Fruitcake on Instagram in 2018, and on March 17, 2020, Fred confirmed their engagement by sharing a picture of the pair with the simple caption "#fruitcake said yes," with heart and ring emojis.  

Speaking of the proposal, Fred told GMB viewers, "It was perfect because she said yes. That's the main thing. The only thing though is I did not get a ring. But I've now managed to do it because we are out of lockdown, so the ring is there, and she is very happy. So all is well!"

Speaking about dating his other half, Fred said in an interview with The Sun, "She's a fun girl and she makes me laugh. We just enjoy each other's company, we enjoy walking and all sorts of stuff, like everybody else, it's easy - very simple and very straightforward."

Fruitcake has her own Instagram account named fruitcake_fundamentals, where her name remains a mystery, but she shares affordable high street fashion buys. The fashionista shares clothing advice for those with fuller figures and a bigger bust, as well as where to find budget clothing that looks premium. There's also plenty of snaps featuring her life and adventures with husband-to-be, Fred. 

The pair had planned to marry in 2021, but cancelled as some family were finding it difficult to travel due to ongoing coronavirus restrictions as the wedding was planned to take place in Jamaica.

At the time he said, "Well we are waiting to see when we can travel as it's important to have friends and family there. We have to be patient and see what is going to happen – it is out of our control." 

Although Fred suggested the wedding would take place in 2022, there has been no announcement from either Fred or Fruitcake, that a wedding has gone ahead.

Who is Fred Sirieix's daughter?

Fred's daughter is 17-year-old Team GB diver Andrea Sirieix, whom he shares with former partner Alex Spendolini. He also has a son, 13-year-old Lucien, with Alex.

Andrea is a Tokyo 2020 Olympic diving finalist, and a 2022 Commonwealth, European, and Junior World Champion. As well as sharing her diving triumphs with her 30,000 Instagram followers, she also features regularly on her father's account. Andrea has been training to be a diver from the age of eight, making the Olympic team at the age of 16. 

Although Lucien features less frequently on Fred's Instagram, he did once share a video of the pair boxing together. He captioned the moment "Meanwhile my boy is working hard to take my head off. Not today son!" A fan commented on the post, saying "Loving this! Boxing is such a life/art/skill/lesson. Your lovely son will remember you teaching him all these areas and the time you spend together for ever." 

Is Fred Sirieix a chef?

Although Fred went to catering college to pursue his passion for pastry, he opted for a front-of-house position at the last minute, and hasn’t “looked back since”.

In an interview with The Guardian, the 51-year-old said: “When you’re a chef, you’re an artist. There’s a lot of creativity. But there’s a lot of repetition, too. 

“And as much as I understand the value of repetition in order to master a skill, this is not something that I wanted to do and I thought I could embrace and enjoy and have fun doing. I thought it was just going to kill me.”

Fred has worked with some incredible chefs in his career, including Michel Roux Jnr, Gino D’Campo and Gordon Ramsay

How much is Fred Sirieix worth?
