Tom Read Wilson to replace Eden Blackman on Celebs Go Dating?


Nadia Essex has suggested Tom Read Wilson could replace Eden Blackman on Celebs Go Dating.

It follows Eden announcing he was leaving the E4 show after four series.


Eden told fans he was quitting Celebs Go Dating last month, saying it was to focus on other work projects.

He posted: "I’m immensely proud of the show’s success but after four great series, it’s now time for me to fully commit to my other projects - 2018 will see me relaunch my dating app 'Would Like to Meet' and also marks the 18th year of my music PR agency - these remain my biggest passions and take up a great deal of my time."

Nadia and Eden are said to have been involved in a backstage feud on the E4 series, which concluded its fourth run in February.


Speaking about Eden's departure this week, Nadia told The Sun newspaper: "I haven't spoken to him. I think a lot of people did think it was an April Fools joke. We really made something for four series that I'm utterly proud of. I am so proud of what we did.

“It's his decision, he made it, for his own reasons. I have to respect it.”

Nadia went on to suggest that current Celebs Go Dating receptionist Tom Read Wilson could step up to takeover from Eden.

"I've been reading what the fans have been saying on Twitter and they're all wanting Tom to step up and step through the ranks," she said. “I'm a little bit intrigued to take him under my way, train him, maybe show him the ways of running an agency.


“He's my favourite person on the planet so the fact that I work with him everyday anyway is phenomenal — but if he's sat next to me in the office together, for me that be would a dream.”

Celebs Go Dating airs on E4.
