Celebs Go Dating reportedly 'faces the axe' despite a hugely successful series.

The latest season of the E4 celebrity dating show was the most watched yet.


An average of over 700,000 viewers tuned in to the final episode last week (Thursday), beating ITV2's Survival of the Fittest which had 450,000 viewers at the same time.

However a fifth season could be in doubt.

Usually the show airs each Spring and Autumn but that could now change, The Sun reports.

It's all down to a supposed off-screen feud between dating agents Nadia Essex and Eden Blackman.

"Nadia and Eden’s feud is getting worse and it was so awkward by the end of the finale. Everyone was so happy for a break," a source spilled.

They claimed there was tension over tabloid stories surrounding Eden and his own relationships.

“Nadia and Eden need to make up and sort it out to keep bosses happy," the source added. “They want the stars and their dates making the headlines, not the warring experts.”

As yet, E4 have yet to confirm if Celebs Go Dating will return for a new series.

Speaking after the final last week, Nadia said: "Ok I really am not ready for it to be over.


"Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

"Your love, support and kind tweets have made me so happy this past month.

"It really feels like an end of an era but you can follow what I do next on my instagram - LadyNadiaEssex."
