British reality dating show Celebs Go Dating Season 9 is back with a newish format. Firstly, the show was dramatically changed last year to comply with the lockdown measures in a mansion. Hey, they even changed the name of the show to “Celebs Go Dating: The Mansion” and had the celebs living together.

For this new installment, gorgeous models, DJs, singers, entrepreneurs, and reality show contestants confirm the lineup which will pair them in search of love. What kind of laughs, tears, and drama will this new season bring? For one part, some of the contestants are quite mature, including single mothers, divorcees, and others are millennials that have just been down on their luck in the dating department for quite some time. They will be coached by Anna Williamson and Paul C Brunson.

Ulrika is from Sweden and has just divorced. She was a weather girl and a high fashion model. Now a divorcee and mother of two, she will try her luck at finding a romantic partner with the coaching of Paul C Brunson and Anna Williamson.
A rapper and DJ, 42-year old British Abz Love, was one of the boys at Simon Cowell’s boyband Five. Remember them? If you’re a millennial, you probably do. If you’re a Gen-Z, you probably have no clue of who he is. Just go to Spotify and check out some of Five’s songs to check out his work.
Miles is one of the younger crowd —25 years old— trying a shot at love in this show. He is a YouTuber who focuses on self-improvement, a foodie, and used to date Maeva D’Ascanio. He was a member of Made in Chelsea and is very active on social media.
Marty is another contestant that comes from Geordie Shore —and he won’t be the last, that’s for sure—, besides that reality, he also featured on “Ex on the Beach.” A tough guy and former Army recruit, he broke things up with Chloe Ferry.
The 20-year old Chloe from “The Only Way is Essex” comes to take a shot at finding a better half in this season of Celebs to go Dating. Apart from her work in “The Only Way is Essex,” she also appeared in another reality show by ITV called “ITVBe.” Lastly, Chloe used to date Jack Fincham from “Love Island.”
The 27-year old Nikita comes from another reality show where —I guess— she didn’t find love, called “Married at First Sight UK.” She married Ant and shortly after divorced him. And that’s not all. She got the boot from the reality show from having a rage fit and assaulted somebody off-camera, causing her to remove the show. Will she behave and adhere to this reality show’s code of conduct?

After appearing in the 2019 edition of The Apprentice, he was one of the youngest contestants in the reality show. He was 18 at the time. Now he wants to find a romantic partner.
Last, but not least, we have the Aussie Jessika Power, a lovely girl whose knack for hot photos on Instagram recently made her open an OnlyFans account, sparking lots of debate. Jessika is 29 years old and participated in “Married at First Sight Australia.” But that didn’t prosper as she is on this show now. Will her new prospective partner deal with her social media bravado?

Where is Celebs Go Dating Filmed?
For last season, and mainly thanks to the COVID—19 pandemic, the producers chose to put every contestant inside a house. But not any house. This was one of London’s most lavish pieces of real estate. Following the style of other “bubble” shows, last season’s Celebs Go Dating dated, just within the premises of a £30 million mansion in Syndenhurst estate by Chiddingfold, Surrey.
The house had nine bedrooms, a swimming pool, a bowling lane, a private cinema theater, a gymnasium, a pool and games room, a giant bar, large gardens, and two floors for exclusive parties. For Celebs Go Dating: The Mansion, none of the contestants enjoyed the private rooms. The producers crammed them up in a dormitory. And they shot the season for an entire month in a COVID-safe environment.
