Gogglebox’s Amy Tapper quits to find love on Celebs Go Dating


Gogglebox star Amy Tapper has quit the show for Celebs Go Dating.

18-year-old Amy is a regular in the Channel 4 series alongside her parents Nikki and Jonathan and brother Josh.

They’ve been appearing on the show since 2013 but Amy has confirmed she’s now left in order to pursue a ‘new adventure’.

She’s joined the cast of Celebs Go Dating later this year to find love.

“I’m personally not going back on Gogglebox, they can go on but they wont be with me,” she told the Daily Mirror newspaper. “My family are supportive of everything, their line is if you’re happy I’m happy.

“My dad just said no kissing with tongues, I said ‘I can’t promise you anything but I’ll try my best’.”

Amy tweeted previously: “I can’t wait to join the dating agency and hopefully find someone that’s right for me! – Amy x.”

The new series of Celebs Go Dating will air its fifth series later this year.

E4 previously announced the official starting line up of seven celebs.

They include Sugababes star Mutya Buena, TOWIE’s Chloe Sims and Love Island’s Olivia Attwood and Eyal Booker.

Olivia made the final of last year’s ITV2 series with then boyfriend Chris Hughes, but the pair split soon after the show. Eyal was a contestant on this year’s series but eliminated half-way through the run.

Joining them are Made In Chelsea’s Alik Alfus, TOWIE star and blogger Vas J Morgan and Diversity dancer Sam Craske.

Meanwhile, there will be some changes at the dating agency for the next season after both dating agents Eden Blackman and Nadia Essex left, leaving only receptionist Tom Read Wilson.

Joining for season 5 will be new matchmaker Paul Carrick Branson.

Celebs Go Dating airs on E4.
