This summer six lovelorn celebrities will be on the market and off the shelf, as they desperately seek a soulmate in a new E4 reality series.
The star dating show, Celebs Go Dating, will follow the nightly dates of some of our best-loved and lonely stars as they try to find a non-celebrity love match.
“If there’s one thing we can’t bear to see at E4, it’s a celebrity who’s unlucky in love. That’s why we’ve created our own celebrity dating agency, whose sole aim is to find true romance for famous singletons. Celebs Go Dating will find real people and match them up with famous faces, all in the name of love.” – Channel 4 Head of Formats Dom Bird
After failing to find love in their celebrity circles Charlotte Crosby, Joey Essex, Stephanie Pratt, Tyger Drew-Honey, You Tube’s Jack Jones, and Tattoo Fixers’ Paisley will be matched and date ordinary people in the hope that they will have more success in matters of the heart.
E4 viewers who take a shine to the celebrities can apply to take part before the show starts by emailing email@example.com but will only get selected for a date night if the expert’s think they have a real chance of being compatible.
Dating agency owner Eden Blackman and matchmaker Nadia Essex will be looking to pair our single celebrities with prospective partners. The ultimate goal is that these talented bachelors and bachelorettes find a true love- at the end of the three weeks. Cameras will capture all the action – making sure that any outrageous flirting awkward silences, lover’s tiffs and first kisses are caught on camera for viewers to see. There will be pre, during and post chemistry analysis of the date by the date making team, as well as the viewers at home.
The dates will be followed from start to finish – from making sure outfits are on point, last minute blind date nerves, through to postdate reactions and revelations. The series is being made by Lime Pictures – producers of Hollyoaks and TOWIE – and will air nightly over three weeks.
“We are thrilled to be working with Channel 4 for E4’s biggest entertainment series of the season. Giving unprecedented access into our celebrities lives, viewers can watch their dating ups and downs every weeknight… and if they’re feeling brave, they can even date the celebs themselves.” – Lime Pictures Head of Entertainment Phil Harris
