Among the cast is Reality TV Queen Gemma Collins, Westlife’s Brian McFadden, Love Island’s Wes Nelson and actor Richard Blackwood.

Richard is probably best known for playing Vincent Hubbard in British soap Eastenders.

However he has a huge background in stand-up comedy, so have Richard’s looks, charm and confidence ended him up single or taken?

The 46-year-old said that he thinks he’s single because he won’t settle for just anyone.

Richard also said on first dates that he’s into “exotic women”.

However, his date with Diana Booty went down like a lead balloon when Diana admitted that she didn’t fancy Richard.

Richard joked that she was “too good” and that he likes girls that are an ‘eight’ and Diana was a ‘ten’.
