Celebs Go Dating 2018’s Ollie Locke lifts the lid on his experience

Ollie Locke has lifted the lid on his Celebs Go Dating experience.


The new series of Celebs Go Dating begins tonight on E4 and Ollie says it’s one of the “funniest things” he’s ever done.

Speaking on Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch, Ollie teased: “There’s about nine or ten dates that I go on and they are hilarious.”

He explained: “Half of the date you go, ‘Ugh I can’t believe I’m on a date’, but actually this is documented as one of the funniest things I’ve ever done and I’m really pleased.

“It ends on a great big trip away, which is the first time they’ve ever done that.”

The Made In Chelsea star went on to joke he was now so used to dating on camera, he was confused when seeing people off screen.

“I’ve been on more dates on camera than off, I think, in the last 10 years so I’m very used to this bizarre world now,” he said.


“It’s very often that I’ll go on a real date and I’ll go, ‘Where are they?'”

E4 officially revealed the cast of celebrities taking part in Celebs Go Dating 2018 series 4 last year.

Alongside Ollie they include Love Island hunk ‘Muggy’ Mike Thalassitis and TOWIE’s Gemma Collins.

There’s also Ollie’s Made In Chelsea co-star Sam Thompson, Singer Tallia Storm, Olympian Jade Jones and comedian London Hughes.

Actor Jonathan Lipnicki, most famous for his childhood roles in Jerry Maguire and Stuart Little, rounds off the cast.

Celebs Go Dating 2018 will begin TONIGHT on Sunday, February 4th.


The show will air at a new time of 9PM, rather than 10PM.

And as opposed to airing Monday-Friday each night, the show will now air Sunday-Thursday every evening.
