Celebs Go Dating star Nadia Essex has responded to Geordie Shore's Gaz Beadle calling her "irrelevant" and admits she was a little let down by the effect it had on her Twitter followers...

You get her logic - Gaz has millions of followers on his account and getting into a spat with him, you'd expect your Twitter to go off, right? Not exactly.

Nadia joked: "I thought I would get thousands of followers, I thought I would get loads of stick... I was ready for an explosion and it was just a poof!"

Speaking exclusively to Reveal on Facebook Live, Nadia addressed Gaz hitting out at her in his online column with Daily Star, and remarked: "Well, he wrote about me so clearly I'm not irrelevant."

Gaz had criticised Nadia for speaking about his relationship with Charlotte Crosby and suggesting that he has "no one" despite sleeping with a slew of girls. He wrote: "When is the last time you saw my phone? I will have you know my WhatsApp is on fire, babe.

"Your opinion is irrelevant. You only picked to comment on me because you know it's the only way people will read your toilet paper interviews."

Nadia, however, has now said that she was only being "honest" when asked what she makes of Charlotte and Gaz's history.

She told us: "I don't know if he needs glasses or just scooted past what I said. I was actually really nice, I was talking about the fact that I don't think Charlotte and Gary should get back together. If she was your best girlfriend and she said to you I'm going to get back with Gary, you'd tell her to jog on.

Charlotte on Celebs Go Dating.

"Too much has happened, it's toxic, it's not a good, healthy relationship and that's all I was trying to say. He obviously sat there on a Sunday and might have had a few bevvies, because literally he said that he couldn't think about anything else to write that week and I had made his day - that was a bit of a compliment. Then he just wrote this ridiculous comment about how many girls are sliding up in his DMs and it's like, he's kind of proved my point. If you have to tell me how many girls are sliding up in your DMs, but yet none of them you want to sit with on Christmas Day..."

"I was trying to be nice, I was trying to be honest," Nadia insisted. "He was just clearly quite sensitive about the whole subject... but he called me irrelevant and then wrote a whole column about me."

Nadia also revealed that Charlotte was he favourite celebrity to take part in Celebs Go Dating. The dating inspired reality show saw a slew of celebrities date the public with the help of matchmakers Nadia and Eden.

While Charlotte didn't end up with a date at the end of the series, Nadia credited her for being "so open."

"I loved her [getting so emotional]. It was very brave, she's been through a hell of a lot and in the public eye. She still came in every single day with an open heart and a positive attitude... you can work with that."
