Celebs Go Dating suffered another blow after bosses were forced to cancel the end-of-series trip due to Covid restrictions.
Previous series have seen celebrities and their dates soar to luxury destinations such as the Maldives, but The Sun can exclusively reveal that those who participate this year won’t be traveling very far at all.
A source said: “It’s a nightmare. Originally it was supposed to be overseas, but it’s obviously too touchy right now.
“The producers had planned a five night stay in Yorkshire for the celebrities and their dates.
“But even that had to be cut now and they’re only having dinner.
“It’s not ideal because the end of the series’ journey is really a highlight, but they make the most of a bad situation and as always put health and safety first.”
The Sun previously revealed how the filming of the E4 show was plunged into chaos after one of the stars caught Covid and, due to their mingling with some of the other famous faces attending, at least four people were forced to withdraw temporarily.
A source at the time said: “It’s chaos. One of the celebrities caught Covid and was touring with at least three of the other stars, meaning they’ve all been out of the game for quite some time now.
“This is a concern for the producers because, like most shows, they have a very tight schedule, but the health and safety of the cast and crew is obviously their top priority.”
The drama surrounding the set and location comes after we reveal that some of the participating celebrities have teamed up with each other instead of audience members.
MAFS ‘Jessika Power and Towie’s Pete Wicks had secret offscreen dates, and Chloe Brockett remained furious after Made in Chelsea’s Miles Nazaire ended their short-lived affair.
