Can she reach I'm a Celeb gold?
This year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here has a, uh, questionable line up, so it’s understandable if you don’t know who’s who just yet. But don’t worry, we have you covered, here’s everything you need to know about Sam Quek!
Who is Sam Quek?
Well, she’s an Olympic HERO, so minus patriotism points for you! But, yeah, Sam is a 28-year-old British Field Hockey Player.
So where have I seen her before?
She was part of the Hockey team that beat the Netherlands at the 2016 Summer Olympics. They won by a penalty shoot-out and it was very tense – but she contributed to the golds that got us a big old SECOND in the league tables. She’s also gone on to represent her country 50 times.
What is she like off the pitch?
The Olympian is a staunch supporter of Liverpool F.C. and says Ian Rush is one of her sporting heroes. She also loves Beyoncé, so the athletes are just like us guys.
No, she appeared on BBC One’s antiques game show For What It’s Worth, one of her only television appearances.
Not really. When records at the World Anti-Doping Agency leaked, Sam stood by behind the Therapeutic Use Exemptions, which means athletes can use certain medications – a few years after she had used an inhaler.
Sam Quek can speak out and is on her way to being a national treasure – we think she’ll go far.
