Celebs Go Dating’s Nadia Essex says no to Big Brother – but is up for I’m A Celebrity

Celebs Go Dating’s Nadia Essex has ruled out going on Big Brother.


However the dating expert says she would love to take part in ITV series I’m A Celebrity.

Nadia, who currently appears on E4’s Celebs Go Dating nightly, has been a regular on Big Brother’s spin-off show Bit On The Side.

But she says she’d never enter the house herself, insisting she’d be a “terrible housemate”.

Nadia explained: “I’d be horrendous! How they walk around in bare feet… it grosses me out so much. I couldn’t cope with the snoring, the noise, the boredom.

“I’d be a terrible housemate.”

Rather than a stint in Borehamwood’s bungalow, Nadia is eyeing up a trip the Australian jungle.


“I’d love to do I’m A Celebrity because I’m pretty much scared of everything,” Nadia said, confusingly.

She went on: “I’d like to see how far I could push my limits. I don’t know, but I might be OK having a spider crawl across my face…

“I don’t think I’d be like Helen Flanagan, but I do think I’d be somewhere between her and Paul Burrell with the screaming and the crazed face.”

For now, you can catch Nadia and fellow dating pro Eden on Celebs Go Dating.

Stars on the show this series include Queen of the memes and TOWIE powerhouse Gemma Collins, songstress Tallia Storm, Comedian London Hughes and Olympic champion Jade Jones.


They’re joined by Made In Chelsea’s Sam Thompson and Ollie Locke, American filmstar Jonathan Lipnicki and Love Island’s ‘Muggy’ Mike Thalassitis.

Celebs Go Dating airs Sunday-Thursdays at 9PM on E4.
