Eden Blackman has announce he is quitting E4's Celebs Go Dating.

Eden took to Twitter today to confirm his exit from the show after four series.

He told his followers he was leaving to focus on other work commitments.

"Today I informed the team that I won’t be returning to my role at Celebs Go Dating if and when the show comes back for Series five," Eden posted in a lengthy Twitter statement.

He explained: "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.

"On top of this, I’m also in the process of developing a further new business that is yet to be announced… so it’s a really exciting time. I’m thankful to everyone at Lime Pictures and C4 for the opportunity.

"I’ve had a great time and following its best rated series to date, wish them nothing but more success for the show moving forwards.”

Eden's statement comes just a week after he denied he'd been sacked from the show.

Earlier this month it was claimed a 'backstage feud' between dating agents Nadia Essex and Eden had caused problems off camera.

"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 to The Sun newspaper.

Those on the Celeb Go Dating cast in the latest series included Love Island's 'Muggy Mike' Thalassitis, singer Tallia Storm and her ex Seb Morris. They were joined by Hollywood's Jonathan Lipnicki, Olympian Jade Jones, comedian London Hughes and TOWIE's Gemma Collins.
