We might still be mourning the end of Love Island, but there is good news for reality telly fans as the next series of Celebs Go Dating is in the works.

Rumours about who could be taking part in the next series have been swirling for the past few weeks and the latest name linked to the E4 show is certainly no stranger to dating shows, having appeared on Love Island herself.

2018 Islander Laura Anderson, who is a villa LEGEND in our eyes, has reportedly signed up to the Celebrity Dating Agency following her split from long-term partner Dane Bowers.

According to a TV insider, Laura agreed to take part in Celebs Go Dating just hours after her break-up from the Another Level singer was confirmed.

“Laura is the latest star to sign up for Celebs Go Dating – and she’s only been single for a matter of hours. She is a great addition to the line-up and will be really entertaining on screen,” they told The Sun.

“Dane might not be too impressed to see her trying to snare another bloke on national television – especially because their break up is so fresh. Laura and Dane made their break up public on Thursday and by the Friday she was telling people she had signed up to Celebs Go Dating.”

Pete Wicks is no stranger to the Celebrity Dating Agency, having appeared on Celebs Go Dating twice in recent years. Despite all the coaching from love gurus Paul Carrick Brunson and Anna Williamson, Pete is still single so maybe his third time will be the charm.

Sinitta has previously dated the likes of Simon Cowell and Brad Pitt, but hasn't been able to find Mr Right. Will she bag herself a So Macho lover on Celebs Go Dating? Let's hope so. We also hope she wears her iconic palm leaves outfit on one of the dates.

Geordie Shore's Bethan Kershaw is said to be following in the footsteps of her best pal Chloe Ferry, who appeared on Celebs Go Dating: The Mansion. Will Bethan move on from her ex Beau Brennan and find love with a civilian? Probably not, but we bet she'll be hilarious on the dates.

According to reports, Celebs Go Dating bosses are reportedly keen to sign up a WAG following the huge public interest in the Wagatha Christie court case between Coleen Rooney and Rebekah Vardy. Lizzie Cundy is said to be top of the list.

Hollyoaks legend Gary Lucy is another of the famous stars rumoured to be looking for love on the next series of Celebs Go Dating.

Laura had been living with Dane in Dubai but revealed she would be returning to the UK when she confirmed their split last week. In a statement, the Scottish reality star said, “Just to let all of my beautiful support on here know that unfortunately Dane and I have decided to separate. Thank you for all your continued support.

“Sadly we're just not right for each other but I do wish him nothing but love. I will be moving back to the UK as soon as I can 🫶🏻 Roll on the rest of 2022, let's make it count 💪🏻💙."

Laura and Dane dated before she entered the Love Island villa and rekindled their romance following her split from Paul Knops. The pair had been open about their plans for marriage and babies, with Laura even sharing her celebrity wedding guest list with Closer earlier this year.

She told us, “Dane will have some celebrity groomsmen, but I would choose friends who I have known for a long time to be my bridesmaids – though I’d definitely invite people from the industry who I have met more recently.”

When does Celebs Go Dating start?

Celebs Go Dating bosses are still keeping details of the next series under wraps, however it is expected to start later this year.

What channel is Celebs Go Dating on?

That would be E4, the BEST channel.

Who are the Celebs Go Dating experts?

Joining Paul Carrick Brunson, who made his CGD debut in season five, Anna Williamson took the reigns from Nadia Essex during season six. She began her presenting career on CBBC, and has experience as a journalist and life coach, too.

“When Paul delivers a stern word you still fall in love with him,” Anna previously told Closer.

“I come from a caring place as a life coach, but I’m not afraid to call someone out when I feel like their behaviour is not appropriate and they’re not being genuine. I’m not afraid of being the bad cop to Paul’s good cop, necessarily."

Are Eden Blackman and Nadia Essex on Celebs Go Dating?

Both Nadia and Eden left the Celebs Go Dating ship in 2018.

Eden officially left after series four, claiming he wanted to focus on other business ventures, including a dating app called Would Like to Meet, but his departure was shrouded in controversy after a civilian dater claimed he had been having an affair with her.

The show's other OG dating expert Nadia Essex was later axed from the show.

Who narrates Celebs Go Dating?

That would be the HILARIOUS Rob Beckett, who we think gives Love Island voice over-er Iain Stirling a run for his money.
