Celebs Go Dating has become one of E4’s most successful shows – basically, a bunch of people in the public eye that are looking for love are guided through their dating life and sent out on dates with regular Joes like us.
With the start of its fifth series, here’s everything we know so far to get you excited.
Celebs Go Dating 2018 start date: When is it on?
After much anticipation, E4 announced series 5’s return date as October 14 at 9pm.
Following the same format as previous years, Celebs Go Dating will now air Monday 15, Tuesday 16, Wednesday 17 and Thursday 18 this week, at 10pm on E4.
Celebs Go Dating hosts: Who are the dating experts?
Nadia Essex has been “suspended” by Channel 4 for improper use of social media.
She is currently on our screens – filming was well underway when her exit was announced – but it is understood that she will depart at some point during the series. We don’t currently know who will take her place, if anyone.
Speaking out on her controversial departure from the show earlier this year, Nadia touched on her infamous feud with former co-star Eden Blackman – who had already left.
With the original dating experts both gone, the future of the show is set to look very different.
In episode one, which aired October 14, viewers were introduced to newcomer Paul Carrick Brunson. It sounds like he’s the perfect match for the next batch of celeb singletons, having founded award-winning matchmaking firm PCB Agency.
He had been brought in to replace Eden, who announced earlier this year that he was quitting the show. He said at the time: “I’m immensely proud of the show’s success but after four great series, it’s now time for me to fully commit to my other projects. 2018 will see me relaunch my dating app ‘Would Like to Meet’ and also marks the 18th year of my music PR agency.”
There were reports that Eden’s main reason for quitting was due to a row with Nadia, but she swiftly dismissed these rumours, writing at the time: “In response to further reports today that Eden left Celebs Go Dating because of a fall out with me, I want to set the record straight that his decision to leave the show was for his own reasons and was absolutely nothing to do with me.”
Charming receptionist Tom Read Wilson, a fan-favourite, is also back.
Celebs Go Dating 2018 cast: Who’s on it?
Series five has an exciting mix of celebrities, including two Love Island favourites, a Gogglebox star and a music legend.
Amy Tapper had been spotted filming for the E4 dating show, and she later confirmed that she would not be returning to Gogglebox as a result.
Ibiza Weekender‘s very own Callum Weekender has also joined the famous dating agency. “Well… HERE GOES NOTHING,” he said following the announcement.
Olivia Attwood was the first name to get confirmed and, as one of the favourites from last year’s Love Island, it’s fair to say that fans are excited at the prospect of having her back on their TV screens.
“To say I’m excited and scared to the join the Celebs Go Dating agency is an understatement,” Olivia Attwood beamed. “I’m known as a wild child, party girl so I’m sure I’ll keep Nadia and Paul on their toes.”
Love Island 2018’s resident philosopher Eyal Booker has also signed up, and he’s hoping the agency will help him find a “little partner in crime” now he’s back in the real world. Let’s hope he meets someone that he’s compatible with, as he didn’t have much luck in the villa.
Next up is Mutya Buena, who you might recognise from the Sugababes. According to her VT, she’s on the lookout for a “sexy” man…
Sam Craske won Britain’s Got Talent in 2009 as part of dance troupe Diversity. He also famously dated Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall for two years, before splitting up in 2013.
Fellow dancer Perri Kiely has previously appeared on the E4 dating show, so we’re sure that they’ll be swapping tips.
Alik Alfus first arrived on our screens when he started dating Made in Chelsea‘s Louise Thompson. Sadly things didn’t work out between them, but he’s now looking for someone that will “love him back”, apparently.
Chloe Sims is on the lookout for her dream man, and she thinks that the agency experts will be able to help. As one of The Only Way Is Essex‘s most outspoken cast members, she’s sure to be a standout star of this Celebs Go Dating series.
And the dating show has also bagged another TOWIE resident – Vas J Morgan.
“I’m very desperate for a man, and this is my last hope,” he joked, before adding: “I want to find love.”

Celebs Go Dating 2018: is Andrew Brady on it?
You might have heard A LOT of rumours surrounding Caroline Flack’s on/off man Andrew Brady.
Earlier this year, the former Celebrity Big Brother star revealed that he had been to a meeting with Celebs Go Dating producers – but he will not be taking part on the show.
“I never comment on media speculation or stories. But in this instance I feel it necessary to,” he wrote at the time.
“Yes I had a meeting [with] Celebs Go Dating after Caroline and I had separated. However, this was wrong. When someone has no money and nothing to lose they tend to do crazy irrational things.
“I am ashamed and trying to move on with my life. Please would you respect mine and Caroline’s privacy and not try and speculate on who said or did what.”
Celebs Go Dating 2018: Who has taken part before?
Made in Chelsea‘s Sam Thompson, TOWIE queen Gemma Collins, Celebrity Big Brother winner Stephen Bear and Love Island‘s Muggy Mike are amongst those that have visited the dating agency in past series.
