- Kerry Katona grunts as she shapes up for Celebs Go Dating with unusual motivation
Former Atomic Kitten star Kerry Katona is one of the most exciting stars to ever walk through the agency doors.
Following her split from toyboy Ryan Mahoney, Kerry will be looking for love with a nice ‘normal’ guy.
The mum-of-four, 38, said: "I’ve never done anything like this before. If what I’ve been doing before hasn’t been working I may as well try something new!
"I’ve been on dating apps but to be honest they didn’t work. I’m so excited to be joining the agency and see who Anna and Paul set me up with!"
Love Island’s Georgia Steel has signed up from the show following her very public break-up with Sam Bird, who she met on the ITV2 show.
The pair ended up in a war of words as they released competing statements about their break-up.
Sam said he’d become suspicious when Georgia didn’t return home from a PA one night, and claimed that he’d found messages on her phone in which she was bragging to friends about hooking up with her ex.
Georgia admitted she spent the night at her ex’s house, but insisted she slept in the spare room and that nothing happened.
