We are firm believers that Celebs Go Dating is one of the best TV shows around.

Where else can you see Joey Essex getting burped at, Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Jonathan Cheban dating a Kim Kardashian lookalike, AND Charlotte Crosby spitting milk on a random man all in one place? Perhaps Closer's Christmas party, but we mean on the telly.

During the reality show's 12 series we've seen tears, drama, snogging, loads of forbidden romances and a "secret" feud between TOWIE's Chloe Brockett and former Geordie Shore star Marty McKenna.

The show returned to our screens on Sunday 20 August with a brand new line-up of famous singles including Chloe Burrrows, Adam Collard and Vanessa Feltz. Naturally, we had to take a look back at some of the most outrageous moments from the most iconic dating show of the decade...sorry, Love Island.

So what did Mark-Francis make of Queen Bey then? "Sweet. Very sweet," he said.

Ryan-Mark bails on Callum for a 'spa day'

Viewers were outraged when Apprentice star Ryan-Mark Parsons walked out on his second date with Barbadian Callum claiming he'd had a spa day booked that he'd forgotten about. The real clincher was the wax sealed, handwritten note he'd left on his departure, explaining he didn't want to see him again.

Marty McKenna's agency debut

In 2022 you'd think that media-trained telly types would know not to go on to national TV and refer to half the population as "birds" and "pigs". Not so for forgettable Geordie Shore star Marty, who within seconds of sitting down in the agency's newly revamped offices had branded women both and made the delusional claim that he'd "never had any complaints".

Every series there's a 'forbidden romance' between the slebs but none was more outrageous than the betrothal of Geordie Shore star Chloe Ferry and old-enough-to-be-her-granddad (and brother of national treasure Gary) Wayne Lineker.
