2016 was the year that the best dating show in TV history (soz Blind Date), Celebs Go Dating, was born.

The show, premised on the idea of celebs going dating (obviously) with ordinary members of the public, has proved to be so popular that dating gurus Eden Blackman and Nadia Essex are about to open the books for the second time this year.

Last series brought us f*cking hilarious commentary, Stephen Bear asking every single women he met if they've got shaved noonies and the adorable dating evolution of Diversity's Perri Keily – so we're expecting BIG things.

Now the line-up for the third series has been confirmed!

Stars from TOWIE, Made In Chelsea and Celebrity Big Brother have signed up to try and find lurrrve.


Pls try and stay calm.

    Who is the Celebs Go Dating commentator?

    Not gonna lie, one of our favourite things about Celebs Go Dating is the hilarious commentary from te voiceover guy.

    And the man responsible for basically taking the piss out of all the celebs and narrating the show is comedian Rob Beckett.

    When does Celebs Go Dating 2017 start?

    This series of Celebs Go Dating started on Monday 4th September, and it's been on every weekday since!

    What channel is Celebs Go Dating on?

    The show is aired on E4 at 10pm every weeknight.

    Wait - what happened last Friday? Why wasn't it on?

    All hell broke loose on Friday 15th September when Celebs Go Dating failed to air at its usual 10pm slot. It was instead replaced with an old celebrity edition of Come Dine With Me. Not ideal.

    After some vicious rumours claiming dating expert Nadia Essex had died (she hasn't), show bosses released a statement explainign what happened.

    Aspokesperson for the channel said: "Due to editorial reasons there has been a change to the schedule. Celebs Go Dating will return on Monday."
