Malique, 25, has teamed up with record label 258online after he tagged them in the post.

Wearing a white t-shirt and a black cap, the soap star looked focused as he spent time in the studio.

He teased: “Been working on something special.”

His Instagram bio also states that he is a musician.

Malique returned to the soap quit last year after taking a two year break in 2019 to pursue a career in reality television.

Since leaving the show he has appeared on Celebs Go Dating, Celebs Ex in the City and Celebs on the Farm.

Malique’s character Prince left the village to travel the world in 2019.

He was heartbroken about wife Lily McQueen’s shock death from sepsis and realised he needed to be away from the village.

In real life, the actor has become a dad for the second time in September.

He revealed his girlfriend has given birth to a little girl called Milan.

Sharing the first pictures of his daughter, Malique wrote: “22-09-22 Milan Thompson-Dwyer was born.”

Malique only revealed that he had a mystery girlfriend a month before and that she was pregnant.

He wrote at the time: “Ain’t no one ever loved me like you love me that’s why I’ve got you for life. Your gonna be the best mum.”

Malique also has a daughter named Alexis with a previous partner.

After he welcomed his daughter in 2017, the former I’m A Celeb star admitted his life turned upside down as he adjusted to fatherhood.

Malique told his Instagram followers that year: “I’m not going to lie, 2017 broke me, matured me, whooped my ass, humbled me, blessed me, made me smarter and wiser.

“It showed me snakes are everywhere & family & friends are just titles if the love isn’t real.”

He added: “So basically 2017 was the best worst of my entire life. Here’s to 2018.”
