The latest series of Celebs Go Dating has been riveting viewing, and we are going to miss it.
There have been some real characters this time around – and the celebrity guys who were looking to find a partner via The Celebrity Dating Agency were James ‘Arg’ Argent from The Only Way is Essex, over the top gay Bobby Norris, reality TV veteran Calum Best and a former X Factor contestant named Frankie Cocozza. The celebrity women looking for love included Ex on the Beach’s and daughter of Les Dawson, Charlotte Dawson, TV and radio presenter Sarah-Jane Crawford, US actress Courtney Stodden and the sweet Georgia Toffolo from Made in Chelsea.
So a fair number of reality TV “stars” taking part in yet another reality TV show!
During the course of the show, viewers see the celebrities given tips on how to bag a partner, and some of their behaviour has been hilarious. Have any of the people on Celebs Go Dating found love though? It has been an eventful series, that’s for sure, with trendy London speed dating evenings, cringe group therapy sessions and Calum Best getting pushed off a boat by a woman he stood up and we’ve seen some very surprising twists and turns, but the only celebrity to find love is Bobby Norris who hit it off big time with Jack. In his final meeting at the agency, Bobby actually made the relationship adviser Eden Blackman cry real tears.
The other relationship adviser on the show is Lady Nadia Essex and between them they won’t stand for any nonsense from the celebs. They are tasked with pairing off the famous faces with their perfect matches, selected from members of the public. The two of them are ably assisted by Tom Read Wilson, who plays the role of the exuberant secretary. Incidentally Tom was once a contestant on The Voice, but he didn’t get very far.
The Celebrity Dating Agency doesn’t exist of course – it is just a made up name for TV. The closest online dating site we could find is called Minted Men which supposedly attracts celebrities.
We won’t miss the stupidity of some of the celebrities, but we will miss the show.
#CelebsGoDating come back soon!
