Why did Eden Blackman leave?
Eden Blackman starred on the first four series of Celebs Go Dating alongside Lady Nadia Essex and Tom Read Wilson.
In March 2018, The Sun Online revealed that Blackman quit Celebs Go Dating to focus on new projects.
The dating expert fell out with co-star Nadia Essex towards the end of the latest series, with show bosses worried their frosty relationship could jeopardise its future.
The Sun exclusively revealed on July 19, 2018, that bosses had replaced Eden with relationship coach and Oprah Winfrey’s matchmaker Paul Carrick Brunson.
Why did Lady Nadia Essex get axed from Celebs Go Dating?
In September 2018, Nadia was axed from the show after trolling social media users with fake accounts.
Thus, she won't appear in the upcoming series, which had already started shooting.
A TV source explained the situation, saying: “Nadia has been suspended from the show until further notice and won’t be appearing on the rest of the series.
“Bosses have made the decision following an investigation into Nadia’s use of social media.
“She was found to be setting up fake accounts to troll certain users – which is something that won’t be tolerated.”
