Celebs Go Dating is back – and this time it comes with an even bigger bang. The unlucky-in-love stars will be spending four weeks in a luxury love nest and sparks are guaranteed to fly.
While the celebs confide in Tom Read Wilson, dating experts Paul C Brunson and Anna Williamson will dish out advice, and comic Rob Beckett will give his unique take on all the action.
The mansion will be home to Corrie actress Kimberly Hart-Simpson, Made In Chelsea‘s Sophie Hermann, Love Island star Curtis Pritchard, TV presenter Karim Zeroual, DJ Tom Zanetti and Ibiza’s King of Ocean Beach, Wayne Lineker.
But perhaps most exciting of all, Geordie Shore party animal Chloe Ferry re-joins the cast. The 25-year-old tells us she is in a better place than ever, why she has a crush on Megan Barton Hanson, and how she’s finally ready to find The One…

How do you feel about returning to Celebs Go Dating, Chloe?
I am so happy. I’ve been single for a year and I’m ready to find someone. I’m feeling a bit lonely, the show couldn’t have come at a better time. I feel I didn’t get a proper chance last time. The next person I get with is hopefully going to be The One. The person I am with next is going to be the father to my kids.
That’s a lot of pressure you’re putting on the agents!
There’s no time for messing around, I’ve had enough partying, I’m bored with it. I want a family. I know that’s a lot of pressure to put on someone but who cares, it’s their job!
So no bed-hopping, like in the Geordie Shore house?
I’m going in there to find my husband, I don’t want to be bed-hopping. I want to find the person I want to spend the rest of my life with. I’m very serious about this.
Are you still open to dating guys and girls?
I’m still trying to work out if I like girls. I’m more attracted to men. But I am still attracted to women and I could imagine kissing a woman. But they have to be my type.
What’s your type?
With girls, I like petite, big boobs. For example, Megan Barton-Hanson! I fancy Megan. I feel like she’s cool, quite sexy, she flirts and has good banter.
How is work at the moment?
My salon is doing amazingly. We’ve got a training academy and we’re now franchised. So that’s going to be my main focus, growing the business. I’m also hoping to get my own show.
Do you think your financial success might intimidate men?
I’ve built myself up with hard work. I like being successful and I like treating my family, which some men can find quite intimidating. But that’s not how it should be.
Has your recent weight loss improved your confidence?
People think I’m training to lose weight but I’m training because it makes me feel good and helps my mental health. I lost a lot of weight in the first lockdown and that’s when I really started to train. Without training, I’d have been in such a bad headspace.
Do you think the Celebs Go Dating mansion will be as wild as the Geordie Shore house?
No. On Geordie Shore you’re going out, you’re having fun. But these people are going on the show to find love. I’m going there to find my husband. If I don’t walk out with a man, I’m going to be fuming!
