Relationship expert Nadia Essex talks Celebs Go Dating, her dream candidates and why 2017 will be her year…

After the success of Celebs Go Dating series one, we weren’t surprised when love coach Nadia Essex confirmed it will return next year.

Earlier this year stars including Joey Essex and Charlotte Crosby joined Nadia’s dating agency, and she insists viewers are in for a treat next time around.

Speaking to Now at the Disney Store’s Christmas party, Nadia explains: ‘I’m over the moon we’re getting a second and third series! It’s bigger and better – go hard or go home! The agency is going to blow your mind, it’s insane – a full blown chateau!

‘You will be surprised at some of the celebrities we’ve got, everybody wants to do it!’

Of course details of the stars taking part are being kept firmly under wraps, but Nadia reveals she’d love YouTube vlogger Joe Sugg to take part. She adds: ‘He’s too young for me but he’s hot, and he talks about dating on his blog.’

One person who has caught her eye is The Only Way Is Essex favourite Bobby Norris – and Nadia would love to set him up with his Prince Charming.


‘We have to have a member of the LGBT community and Bobby Norris would be my first choice. I just love him as a person and he’s like the gay Bridget Jones! He just can’t pick the right guy, but I could so help him.’

Despite being a dating expert, Nadia can’t seem to take her own advice! She’s currently single but is adamant 2017 will change that.

She adds: ‘It’s the year I’ll find my husband, that’s my New Year’s resolution. I’m going to get married, settle down and have babies!’
