But it seems they only have eyes for each other as they prepare to put their romantic lives in the hands of two dating experts when the hit E4 show returns for a sixth series.

Mirror Online has contacted Kerry and Pete’s representatives for comment.

Award-winning matchmaker Paul C Brunson, who joined the show on series five, will be returning alongside a brand new dating expert.

Junior client co-ordinator Tom Read Wilson will also return to lend a sympathetic ear to the celebs as they list off their dating woes.

Following her split from toyboy Ryan Mahoney, Kerry said she 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!"
