PREVIEW: Celebs Go Virtual Dating
This new spin off to E4’s flagship reality series Celebs Go Dating, will bring all the dating drama of its sister show, but with the added challenges of video vetting love matches and trying to find that spark on a socially distanced date. How will Chloe Ferry, Levi Davis, Pete Wicks and Shaughna Phillips cope when getting up close and personal is off the table? Will they still excel in turning on the charm, or buckle under the remote pressure?
The celebrities will be set up on a series of dates, either remotely from home, or outdoors adhering to social distancing guidelines.
Upon joining the virtual dating agency TOWIE heart-throb Pete Wicks said “I’m excited to be heading back to the agency. Anna, Paul and Tom give great advice, and I’m looking forward to getting a slightly different Celebs Go Dating experience this time around. Lockdown has really made me realise that I am ready to have someone to share my time with, instead of just my dogs! Hopefully this time I can leave the agency with a girl on my arm, not another Sam Thompson!”
Geordie Shore lass Chloe Ferry said “I am absolutely buzzing to join the agency! So many of my friends have been through the Celebs Go Dating process and absolutely loved it. I can’t wait to see what advice the agents can give me, and if they can help me find me a worldie.”
Professional rugby player and Celebrity XFactor star Levi Davis said “After being single since I was 18, I am so ready to meet somebody I can hopefully spark a romance with. I’ve heard great things about the agency, and that Anna, Paul and Tom give sound advice. I’m the biggest overthinker in the world, so looking forward to seeing what advice the agents can give me. I can’t wait to see what happens!”
Love Island favourite Shaughna Phillips said “I’m so excited to join the Celebs Go Virtual Dating agency, I’m feeling hopeful that the experience won’t be as bad as my previous dating fails! I’m really looking forward to learning more about myself, and hopefully becoming a pro-dater. I just can’t wait to see who the agents set me up with, hopefully they might open my eyes to more guys who might tickle my fancy!”
Brought to you by Extra chewing gum, the series will see expert dating agents, Paul C Brunson and Anna Williamson return to the celebrity dating agency, ably assisted by junior Client Coordinator and celeb confidante, Tom Read Wilson. The trio will guide the celebs through the unchartered and potentially choppy waters of online love and distanced dating. Rob Beckett will also be back delivering his trademark wit as voiceover.
Tune in to E4 every Monday at 10pm from 27th July, to see if the agency manages to match the ‘perfect pair’ on Celebs Go Virtual Dating!
