Perri Kiely opens up about his dating confidence issues on tonight's Celebs Go Dating on E4.

This evening marks the end of week three of four of the latest series and so far the guys on this year's cast have been struggling to find their perfect match.


The Celebrity Dating Agency is working hard to find love for its demanding dating disasters and isn't giving up.

Diversity dancer Perri Kiely started Celebs Go Dating having never been on a date but has thrown himself into the show. Tonight he's sent on a date with a difference - he's got to woo his girl while bathing with her in a hot tub.

After the date, Perri heads back to the agency with the other celebs where they all speak about their experiences so far.

"This process is really tough, getting up in front of these people and taking about my feelings, it's really hard," he says.

Dancer Perri continues: "Dates do expect a 12-year-old little girl, that's the image they have in their head. When we won BGT I was really young and in people's heads I'm trapped in that bubble."


He adds: "I feel people don't go for people like me. People like Bear and Jonathan and Joey they're smooth and suave."

Watching on, dating agent Nadia reacts: "That's heartbreaking."

The other celebs are quick to rally around Perri with Ferne McCann and Jorige Porter encouraging him.

"It really upsets me that Perri feels that way, we need to help him with his confidence," Nadia tells cameras.


Elsewhere on tonight's show, the agents send Joey on a blind date with a gorgeous Swedish singleton, Mikaela while picky Jonathan Cheban is set up with Ffion, who is the reigning Miss Wales.

Celebs Go Dating airs tonight at 10PM on E4.
