Hunky comedian and National Television Awards host Joel Dommett is a man of many talents.
He not only makes us laugh, he also made viewers swoon with his constant shirtless displays while in the I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! jungle – and he can host bonkers television shows, too.
Plus everyone watched in almost horrified fascination as it was revealed Joel was the victim of a sly and vindictive sex tape situation.
While the 36-year-old comic has admitted it was “the most horrific thing ever” the plucky star tried to “own” the scandal and even went on to date the woman whose pictures the tricksters used to lure him in.
But fast forward five years and Joel has found true love with model Hannah Cooper.
The pair wed in 2019 in Greece and it's true love, the real deal.
Tonight the funnyman hosts the National Television Awards – and he's planning the biggest hangover of his life.
He told the Daily Star: “I will be emotional afterwards. I’m trying not to get too emotional before because I don’t want it to affect me.
“It just helps me deal with the nerves better. But it will definitely be a really emotional evening for so many reasons.
“I’m sure I will enjoy myself and let my hair down. I am already fearing the hangover.
“I’ll probably be the drunkest boy in the room. I think it will be the worst hangover I’ve ever had!”
Meanwhile, here’s all you need to know about the loved-up pair.
In truly modern fashion, Joel and Hannah met on Instagram in 2016.
She sent him a cat with heart eyes emoji and “that was it”, apparently.
Even though Joel, who is originally from Rockhampton, Gloucestershire, said he had been “burned in the past online” he obviously decided to take his chances with the blonde beauty and they met up for a “super” first date.

How Joel asked Hannah, 30, to be his wife is the stuff dreams are made of.
He got her to read his book It's Not Me It's Them – but tore out the last page.
When she got to the end, she asked him where the missing page was and lo and behold he got down on one knee wearing a tuxedo, surrounded by 200 candles and asked her to marry him.
She was wearing a Rod Steward t-shirt, Joel recalled, but luckily said a big fat yes.
He later posted a picture on Instagram of a loo door saying "engaged".

The pair tied the knot in 2019 in Mykonos, Greece, in a romantic beach ceremony.
Hannah wore a simple yet stunning white lacy, off the shoulder boho-chic gown while Joel wore a smart suit with a t-shirt and trainers.
They kindly shared some wedding snaps on social media and Joel simply captioned one: "Best day ever. Love you @hannah_cooper."
Joel and Hannah kept it intimate too with only 27 guests and it was officiated by none other than Love Island’s Iain Stirling.
The wedding wasn’t without its shenanigans though, including a family trying to gatecrash the beach and everyone ending up in the sea in their underwear.

Before Joel found love with Hannah, he fell victim to a cruel and cunning sex tape blackmailer.
Newly single, Joel said he was dipping his toes into internet dating and out of the blue, a hot woman called “Staci Taylor” contacted him on Twitter.
They “got on well” and before long this mysterious beauty asked him if he wanted to have Skype sex.
Getting swept up in the moment, Joel agreed. After doing the deed on video, “Staci” went completely silent. Joel shrugged it off.
Two years later a strange account on Twitter called CelebrityBusted followed him and then told him they did indeed have pictures of his privates.
He was about to go on I’m A Celeb so he knew interest in his personal life was about to explode.
Inevitably the next question was about cash and how much he was willing to pay for this person not to leak the pictures.
But leak them they did after Joel refused to be financially blackmailed.
It was “horrific”, he said, but he did his best to limit the damage by owning the situation and using it in his comedy.
And in a weird twist, he managed to track down the girl whose picture the tricksters used as “Staci”.
"Staci" turned out to be a Russian stylist called Natalia Noir and they even ended up dating briefly.
The upshot is Joel will never, ever, do anything intimate on camera again and he said seeing yourself masturbate is “the worst thing in the world”.

The couple, who are both doing alright for themselves when it comes to good looks, love to post near-naked pictures of themselves in compromising positions – despite Joel's past experiences.
They’re not shy, that’s for sure.
Who remembers the one when Joel and Hannah were on holiday in Thailand and posed nude while covering their bits with exotic fruit with the caption "Unwashed exotic fruits"?
They also love sharing pics of them with their hands all over each other.
In another memorable image, the pair stood in a bathtub in their birthday suits with just some bubbles covering their bits.

Joel's most recent TV venture was as the host of The Masked Dancer – the sister show to his other gig, The Masked Singer.
The shows see celebs hidden behind elaborate masks, and the aim of the game is to guess who they are through their singing or dancing.
Judge Davina McCall was convinced one of the contestants on the most recent series of The Masked Singer, Alien, was Hannah.
The character's clues suggested she was a model – and of course, that’s Hannah’s job.

Joel looked stunned as he realised he could be stood next to his sexy wife and have absolutely no idea.
Later, Joel confessed that Dragon might be his wife Hannah too after the colourful character gave a clue.
Dragon said: "I might be cute but sometimes I have a fiery temper."
She was neither, in case you’re wondering.
But five years after meeting, Hannah and Joel seemed as loved up as possible, and Joel has sweetly said: “I’m the age I am, I love where I live and I love my wife, we just stay in a lot.”
Goals right there.
