Celebs Go Dating’s Demi Sims and Megan Barton Hanson respond to dating rumours

Demi Sims and Megan Barton Hanson have spoken out on rumours they’re dating after filming Celebs Go Dating.


The pair – who both identify as bisexual – are among the single celebrities on the new E4 series.

Although the show is meant to see celebs head out on dates with ‘non-famous people’, there’s been claims that Demi and Megan have got together.

Playing down the rumours, Megan told the Daily Mirror newspaper: “We’re good friends, we’ve got to know each other more during this show, we have a little flirt but we’re still dating other people. It’s still early days.”

Demi added: “Well obviously we fancy each other and we like each other but I am here to date other people as well so I’m just seeing where it goes, times will tell.”

Celebs Go Dating’s dating agent Anna Williamson told the newspaper she didn’t ‘actively endorse’ celebs on the show dating one another.

She explained: “It’s not something we actively endorse and encourage, however, it’s not the first time that celebs have had their eye on each other and it probably won’t be the last.


“Part of the process is to date the people we have on our books as well, but if natural romance is blossoming it would be remiss of us to discourage it.”

Anna added: “A lot of the celebrities that come on our show are a bit jaded with dating in their own world, a lot of people have dated each other within that genre and I’d say most people are a bit fed up with dating an Instagram star, and essentially dating themselves, and want something a bit different.

“Dating a non-famous person is a really good opportunity to reconnect with the real world.”

Celebs Go Dating’s upcoming seventh series will start on Monday, August 5 at 9PM it’s been confirmed.

The full cast for series 7 of Celebs Go Dating was confirmed earlier this year.

Alongside Demi and Megan, names signed up for the new series include former TOWIE star Lauren Goodger and Blue singer Lee Ryan.

Joining them are Geordie Shore’s Nathan Henry and Lady Colin Campbell, who’s set to be the show’s oldest ever singleton at the age of 69.


Demo’s sister Chloe Sims is also on the line up having previously appeared on last year’s series where she failed to find love.

Completing the current cast of Celebs Go Dating 2019 is Love Island winner Jack Fincham, who split from girlfriend Dani Dyer earlier this year.
