You're probably in AI Servo mode.

You need to be in One Shot, or AI Focus to get the focus points to lit.

Thanks but unfortunately I've tried them all with the same result. I understand the difference between the modes as it's similar with my 400d. Don't understand why this is happening on the 5.

In fact, even in AI Servo my 400d would still show a red dot in the appropriate spot when using a manually selected AF point. Granted, in auto AF it wouldn't. On the 5D I don't get any AF points illuminating on focus in any mode apart from when running the camera in full auto mode (the green square on the mode dial).
