Celebs Go Dating is reportedly in crisis after multiple stars were forced to stop filming due to a break out of Covid.
At least four of the celebrities planning on finding love through the upcoming E4 show are said to have been affected by the self-isolating rules.
A source told The Sun : “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 also been reported that a second celebrity has caught Covid but it’s said to be an “isolated case” tahat hasn’t caused any disruption to the filming.

The new series will see Ulrika Jonsson, Five singer Abz Love, TOWIE’s Chloe Brockett, Made In Chelsea star Miles Nazaire, TOWIE’S Pete Wicks, Married At First Sight’s Jessika Power and Nikita Jasmine all hope to find love.
Jessika Power, 27, and Pete Wicks, 33, have been allegedly enjoying secret dates away from the cameras – despite the aim of the show being to match them with a member of the public.
There were also rumours that Chloe, 21 and Miles, 25, had been hooking up on the show.
It’s said the pair had “intense chemistry” and that it was clear to everyone that “something was going on”.

“I’m enjoying it but I look forward to working with Anna and Paul, I’m sure they will have me back on track to finding love in no time.”
