Celebs Go Dating is hands down 29482949939% the best thing to happen to telly ever (arguably).

It's premised on celebs going dating (obviously) with ordinary members of the public, and in its last series brought us fucking hilarious commentary, MARLENE, and a slightly creepy realisation we have a crush on Tyger Drew-Honey (he's grown up since Outnumbered ;)).

This coming series (which starts on Monday 13 Feb) will feature the likes of Stephen Bear, Joey Essex (again), Ferne McCann and that little dancing boy from Diversity (WHO NOW HAS ABS).

But it appears Stephen Bear, (who basically just confirmed to heat his romance with Charlotte Crosby - see more here) isn't a big fan of the show.

(Warning: contains spoilers for the best TV show in the world)

"Honestly? It’s going shit. It’s going terrible,” he told heat of Celebs Go Dating. "I’ve come onto the show for the money. That’s why I’m here. I’ll be honest, I’ve done it for the money… I say the truth, baby. They pay me good.”

He also accused the show’s professional matchmaker Nadia Essex of being "mad" and giving "crap advice".

When we spoke to Bear, he was in the middle of a 24-hour ban from the dating agency because: "I ran away from a date. The agents hate me. I was in the cab gearing myself up and I just thought, 'I don’t even want to be here.' So I told the cabbie, 'Pull over, I’m getting the bus.' I only picked her because I was drunk. Unfortunately, I haven’t met the girl who I fancy enough yet to really get to know. I can’t sit through a date and not fancy them physically. 'Cos I just think, 'What’s the point?' Yes, I stood her up, but I’ve helped make her a stronger person. Life is never smooth, you’ve got to give a few knockbacks."
