E4 Commissions 'Celebs Go Dating'

News Image
A new dating show, Celebs Go Dating, has been commissioned by E4.

The series will follow six famous faces as they go on dates with members of the public in the hope of finding true love. Charlotte Crosby, Joey Essex, Stephanie Pratt, Tyger Drew-Honey, Jack Jones and Paisley are the celebrities taking part.

Dating agency owner Eden Blackman and matchmaker Nadia Essex will try to pair the single celebrities with prospective partners in the hope that they will find 'The One'.

Cameras will capture all the action, while there will be pre-, during and post-chemistry analysis of the date by the experts, as well as the viewers watching at home.

Celebs Go Dating was commissioned by Channel 4 Head of Formats Dom Bird and Formats commissioning editor Simone Hayward. The series is being made by Lime Pictures and will air nightly over three weeks. The series will be executive produced by Lime Pictures Head of Entertainment Phil Harris and executive producer Kalpna Patel-Knight.

Dom Bird said: "If there's one thing we cant 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."

Phil Harris added: "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."
