Celebs Go Dating: Pete Wicks and Kerry Katona rumoured for next series


The first names lined up for the next series of Celebs Go Dating have been rumoured.

The E4 dating show just wrapped up its fifth series at the start of the month, but already work has started on the next run.

One of those said to be in talks for the show is TOWIE’s Pete Wicks, who recently split from his girlfriend.

“Pete is an absolute hunk and the women who are cast for the show will be queuing up to get a date with him,” a source told The Sun newspaper. “He’s just the kind of eye candy bosses want on the show and after seeing how much fun Chloe [Sims] had, Pete didn’t need much persuasion.”

The tabloid also claims Kerry Katona has been in early talks to join Celebs Go Dating

“Kerry’s looking amazing, feeling the best she’s ever felt, despite splitting with her boyfriend, and she’s ready to find love again,” a source explained. “She’s been in talks with the show and is close to signing up – she’s always joking she needs someone else in charge of her love life, so the agency finding her dates will really work for her!”

They added: “She’s really excited about the show and they’d love to sign her up.”

The most recent series of Celebs Go Dating saw a line up including Sugababes star Mutya Buena, TOWIE’s Chloe Sims and Love Island’s Olivia Attwood and Eyal Booker.

Joining them were Made In Chelsea’s Alik Alfus, TOWIE star and blogger Vas J Morgan and Diversity dancer Sam Craske, Goggleboxer Amy Tapper and Ibiza Weekender’s Callum Alexandré Izzard.

Celebs Go Dating recently denied claims that Olivia was hiding a ‘secret boyfriend’ during filming.

“The number one rule of the Celebrity Dating Agency is that celebrities must be single,” they said. “Olivia was honest about her on/off relationship with her ex, and they were not in a relationship throughout filming.

“Olivia committed to the dating process, enjoying some fun and flirting on a number of dates.”

Celebs Go Dating airs on E4.
