Celebs Go Dating’s virtual and socially distant recent series may have failed to result in any love matches (let’s be honest, when has it ever?) but they’re taking a new route for the next series and Big Brother fans are in for a treat.

Erring on the side of caution, the next series, which will be early next year, has taken into account that the pandemic will likely still very much be a thing and are reportedly planning on filming Big Brother style, with daters isolating together in a house.

Sounds like EXCELLENT television viewing to us, tbh.

“This is a safe way to ensure a large chunk of people taking part in the show are Covid-free and aren’t exposed to the virus during the filming,” said a source.

The fall of Stephen Bear

After a few episodes of Stephen Bear acting as Stephen Bear-ish as it's possible to act, Nadia and Eden decided they'd had enough and chucked him out the agency. Good riddance.

“They’ll still go on dates with the ‘civilians’ they get paired with but they will be virtual meetings, not face-to-face.

"If the celebrities who are stuck in each other’s company get embroiled in any rows, mischief or saucy goings-on, they won’t protest too much.”

Speaking to The Sun they added, "The cameras will be there to capture it all.”

One celeb who could be signing up (again) is Chloe Ferry, who failed to find a worldie on any virtual or socially distant dates in the last series.

In an exclusive chat with heatworld earlier this month she said, “I’ve been single for a year now and I am wanting to find someone, I’m a bit lonely. It’s been a long time since I’ve been with someone so I want to find someone and I am ready to settle down.

“I would love to do Celebs Go Dating again because I am looking for someone so I would just love it.”
