Could we be seeing TOWIE star Bobby Norris on Celebs Go Dating? We will be if matchmaker Nadia Essex has anything to do with it...

Series one of the E4 dating show has just wrapped and viewers saw Nadia and her fellow matchmaker Eden Blackman find dates for a slew of celebrities, including Charlotte Crosby, Joey Essex and Stephanie Pratt.

While Charlotte didn't find love, Stephanie and Joey are now dating each other and Nadia is already conjuring up her dream class for another series. And FYI... Bobs is top of her list!

We caught up with Nadia and show receptionist Tom Read Wilson for a chat on Facebook Live and Nadia exclusively told us that Bobby would be up for signing up to her dating agency.

One fan got in touch to ask which famous faces they would like to see on the show next and, as well as name dropping Brad Pitt, Nadia said Bobby.

She told us: "I've always said that I would really love Bobby from TOWIE. He would be so good. He's like our gay Bridget Jones. We've messaged on Twitter and he's up for it, so I'm very much like, 'Let's make it work.'"

We would LOVE that.

Nadia then added: "I would also love Gemma Collins but the two of them together would never work. You wouldn't be able to control them. Bobby series two. Gemma series three."

TOWIE fans have seen Bobs hunting for a potential partner on the ITVBe reality show, and while we all thought love was potentially on the cards with Mr MMA (Chris), Bobs revealed last series that things had fizzled out between them.

Speaking to us back in July, Bobby said: "I literally haven't got a bad way to say about Chris, he's such a lovely man, but unfortunately our diaries haven't been able to sync. It's just been hard to try and catch up and spend any time together."

He admitted that the two hour distance between them had put strain on their romance, adding: "Note to self, when I start dating again they definitely need to be within the M25 circle... We struggled with that. He's a nice man, there was no fallout, and we never really put a label on it… it just fizzled out."

So could Nadia be his ticket to finding someone to settle down with? Possibly. But we'd need a second series of Celebs Go Dating to give her the chance.

Nadia and Tom weren't giving anything away when it came to revealing whether Celebs Go Dating will be back, but Tom did suggest: "I suppose the more people that tweet, the more people will listen."

He and Nadia are definitely up for opening the agency again, with Nadia previously telling us she wants to make it "bigger and better."

"Season two I want to be bigger and better. I want LGBT represented, I want older. I think this season was amazing but safe. I want something bigger, brasher and really go all out for season two," she said.
