Channel 4 has announced former TOWIE star Jessica and Gogglebox favourite Scarlett will star alongside TV presenter Esther Rantzen and Paralympian Will Bailey.

"We're hugely excited about the new series of Celebrity First Dates," said the show's executive producer Nicola Lloyd.

"It never seems to matter who walks through the doors of the First Dates Restaurant, regardless of status we're all vulnerable human beings and our celebrity series confirms this. We're proud to be able to maintain the emotional integrity of the series through these four unique celebrity episodes.

"Be prepared for some romantic matches alongside a few awkward encounters."

Four celebrity specials of the BAFTA-winning series will air later this year, along with 20 hour-long episodes featuring new guys and girls searching for love.

As always, the staff - Fred, Sam, CiCi, Merlin and Laura - will be on hand.

Commissioning Editor, Madonna Benjamin added: "We're delighted that First Dates continues to go from strength to strength. This is largely due to the quality of the match-making carried out by the brilliant team at Twenty Twenty. This year over 110,000 people asked to be matched for a blind date in the restaurant.

"With such a high volume of applications, we believe this is strong testament to the faith First Dates' fans have in the programme finding them love!"

We can't wait!
