He calls himself a dating expert but it seems Eden Blackman could do with some relationship advice himself right now.

Alongside Nadia Essex, Eden has made a name as a dating guru on E4's Celebs Go Dating, but we're not sure we'd want his expertise after accusations of cheating made by a former contestant on the show, Chanelle Sadie Paul.

The Kim Kardashian lookalike spoke to The Sun about the moment she tuned into Loose Women last week to see Eden talking about the girlfriend he had been dating for 18 months, when all the while he was allegedly seeing her too.

She told the newspaper: "I'm absolutely gutted, I'm so angry. People need to know he's a bullsh***er, why would you go and be a dating agent and then lie like this?"

Gemma Collins

Last but definitely not least, the legendary GC has signed up to the Celebrity Dating Agency. Does this mean she's ready to move on from James 'Arg' Argetn. Will anyone be worthy of the Queen of Essex's affections?

"In my head I was like 'I found love on the show'. It was a whirlwind, all the wining and dining and taking me out to nice places.

"He was completely flirty, all his messages were quite forward and I felt like he was my own Christian Grey.

"He was really good in bed and really experienced; I felt like I was actually dating a man for once but obviously not."

Chanelle also provided The Sun with screen shots of racy text messages between her and 50-year-old Eden in which they discuss giving each other massages and their sexual exploits.

And it seems she had no idea that she wasn't the only woman in Eden's life.

Chanelle explained: "I had no inkling there was anyone else involved; he met all my friends, we went on nights out.

"We saw each other around once a week; he took me out for my birthday, bought me a present, a card, everything and I thought it was something."

Eden gave Chanelle no cause for worry other than when he allegedly lied about his age - initially claiming to be 38 - and while he never asked her to keep their relationship a secret, he did discourage her from posting pictures of them together on social media. Hmmm...

Chanelle said: "He'd say not to post pictures but I'd put videos on my Insta Stories and his tattoos would be in it so I think he went through stages, sometimes he was quite open and then others he'd say I needed to be careful about what I posted.

"The whole time he was like, 'wait until the next series comes out and we can go public"

The whole saga has clearly upset Chanelle who posted to her Twitter account about her reasons for going to the press about her heartbreak. She wrote: "Ppl ask why I’m so anti men, this is why! I can openly say I fell for someone lst yr which completely turned out to be a lie. I hv said my piece, not to be nasty, bt to gt closure so I can attempt to move the F on! I fell hard & it’s a shame, so this year it’s time to do me."

We're seeing things in a whole new light now... Would you trust Eden Blackman's dating advice?
