Celebs Go Dating 2020: More casting rumours
The Celebs Go Dating agency usually keeps it’s doors open for one or two more special entries at the last minute.
This Morning presenter Alison Hammond will also be heading to the dating agency in 2020 for some romantic help. Alison split from security guard Jamie Savage over two years now and is looking for someone new in her life, who can step up and be good to her and her 13-year-old son, Aidan.
Other potential celebrities joining the Agency this year include Ashley Fongho from Rak-Su and Scary Spice herself, Mel B.
An insider told The Sun that Mel B has signed on to the next series, following her divorce from ex-husband Stephen Belafonte in 2017 and a not-so-secret fling with X Factor winner James Arthur.
They said: “It would be a real coup for the show to land Scary Spice and she would be a huge ratings draw, especially because she has a larger-than-life personality and is open to dating both men and women.”
