The basis of Celebs Go Dating is made up of three very important parts. The two dating agents, Anna Williamson and Paul C Brunson and the show’s trusty receptionist, Tom Read Wilson.
Tom has been the junior client coordinator on the Channel 4 show since 2016 and it doesn’t look like he’s going anywhere any time soon.
Viewers are often delighted by Tom’s love of language and positive charm. He’s known to hand out a quirky fact or two to the celebs, sometimes leaving them perplexed by his vast amount of knowledge.
During more recent series of Celebs Go Dating, Tom has shown off his accent skills and carried off an Essex accent as if he was one of the TOWIE cast members. Viewers were blown away by Tom’s ability to change his voice leading to many asking questions about his real speaking voice.
Let’s take a look at Celebs Go Dating receptionist Tom Read Wilson’s real voice.

Celebs Go Dating: Tom Read Wilson’s real voice
As it turns out it looks like Tom’s voice is indeed real.
The eloquently spoken receptionist isn’t putting on an act and just happens to have one of the poshest voices going on TV.
He’s still shocking people he meets to this day and many celebrities have been taken aback by his perfect accent including will.i.am and James ‘Arg’ Argent.
Tom often takes to Instagram to share his ‘word of the day’ which can be anything from ‘ablutions’ to ‘pantheist’.
Does Tom work as an actor, too?
Yes. Tom has travelled the globe as a pantomime actor.
But his first appearance on TV was quite different from panto as he actually auditioned for The Voice in 2016.
Tom described himself during his The Voice audition as “a Thespian”. He performed “Accentuate the Positive” as his blind audition song.
None of the judges turned their chairs for Tom, however, it was his appearance on the show that led to his TV fame.
