Celebs Go Dating thrown into chaos as multiple stars are forced to pull out of filming after Covid cases

CELEBS Go Dating has been thrown into chaos as multiple stars have been forced to temporarily quit filming after one was struck down with Covid.

The Sun can exclusively reveal that at least four of the stars taking part in the upcoming series of the E4 show are unable to film as of today because they are self-isolating.

A source said: "It's chaos. One of the celebs caught Covid and was filming with at least three of the other stars, meaning they're all out of the game for a while now.

"It's a worry for producers because, as with most shows, they're on a very right schedule, but the health and safety of the cast and crew is obviously their top priority."

It's thought that a second star has also caught Covid but we're told that it is an isolated case and hasn't caused a disruption to filming.

Stars taking part in the new series include Ulrika Jonsson, Five singer Abz Love, Towie's Chloe Brockett, Made In Chelsea star Miles Nazaire, Married At First Sight's Jessika Power and Nikita Jasmine.

The Sun previously revealed how Jessika and Towie star Pete Wicks, who is also part of the new series, had enjoyed secret dates off-camera, despite the aim of the show being celebs dating members of the public.
