Celebs Go Dating isn’t letting a little thing like a global pandemic stop it from returning to our screens this summer, and this time the E4 series is going virtual.
With coronavirus and government guidelines keeping many of us confined to our homes over the last three months, the dating world has moved online, with many singletons embracing virtual dating.
And now it seems that celebrities are no different, with E4 confirming that a Celebs Go Dating spin-off series will premiere this summer, with four celebrities taking part in the all-new Celebs Go Virtual Dating.

The programme will see expert dating agents Paul Carrick Brunson and Anna Williamson return to the agency alongside junior Client Coordinator and celeb confidante Tom Read Wilson to help guide the celebrities through virtual meetings, online love vetting and even a socially distanced date or two as well.
And of course, Rob Beckett will also be back to provide his brilliant voiceover on all of the celebrity dating ups and downs too.
“I can’t wait to throw the agency doors ‘virtually’ wide open,” Paul C Brunson said in a statement. “This series will be an exciting experiment to see how our celebs deal with dating as well as the added restrictions they wouldn’t normally have to navigate.”
Anna Williamson added: “I’m so excited to get the agency back up and running. We are really intrigued to see what dating looks like during this time, and looking forward to seeing how our date-ees handle dating in lockdown.”

Celebs Go Virtual Dating will have a much shorter run than the regular series typically does, with a series consisting of just five 30-minute episodes.
While there’s no news yet on which celebrities will be taking part in the series, the show has promised that the stars will be set up on a series of dates, either remotely from home, or outdoors adhering to social distancing guidelines.
