Nikita Jasmine rose to fame on the revamped Married At First Sight UK last year, and she certainly brought the drama bosses were looking for. Cue explosive rows with her 'husband' Ant Poole and co-star Jordon Mundell.

Although her stint on MAFS UK resulted in a less than happy ending when she was booted off the show for breaching its code of conduct, Nikita clearly hasn’t been put off looking for love on TV and she stars in the latest series of Celebs Go Dating alongside Made in Chelsea’s Miles Nazaire, TOWIE’s Chloe Brockett and boyband legend Abz from 5ive.

We caught up with the celebs before the first episode and they certainly didn’t hold back as they discussed what viewers can expect from this series, with Nikita savagely hitting out at her ex Ant as she discussed what she’s looking for in a partner.

Speaking exclusively to heat, Nikita told us that Ant taught her “absolutely nothing” about love.

She added, “I think he’s an idiot. He was absolutely boring. If he was the last man on the planet, I would see him or marry him again. He is the polar opposite to what I was going for.

“Not deep, no banter, not empathetic. Like drawing blood from a stone. Doesn’t have any wittiness about him. Sh-t. I’ve dated nobody like him, thankfully.”

Blimey, say how you really feel, hun.

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.

So what are the qualities that Nikita is looking for in a man, then?

“I want somebody hardworking and ambitious, I can’t be arsed with somebody who’s sitting there dossing around for the rest of their lives,” she said.

“Loving, caring and empathetic. So someone who wants to get deep and have good conversations. I want a bad boy that’s good to me. They might have had a bad past, all over the place, but as long as they’ve got their sh-t sorted out and their good to me.”

Nikita added, “What I can’t stand is cheats and liars. I’ve never cheated on anyone in my life and I don’t lie. I want someone who’s proper family invested. I like a family man, close to their mum and all that type of stuff.

“Hygiene as well. They have to shower and brush their teeth. I’m not arsed about farting and burping but they have got to be clean or I’m not interested. I don’t like arrogance. I love confidence but hate arrogance, there’s a difference.”

Sounds like dating agents Anna Williamson and Paul Carrick Brunson have their work cut out for them…
