Nadia Essex is axed from Celebs Go Dating

Nadia Essex has been axed from "Celebs Go Dating".

The relationship expert has been helping celebrities find love since the show's launch in 2016, but she's been pulled from appearing in the rest of the current series after she was caught making fake accounts online to troll certain users.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Nadia has been suspended from the show until further notice and won't be appearing on the rest of the series.

"Bosses have made the decision following an investigation into Nadia's use of social media. She was found to be setting up fake accounts to troll certain users - which is something that won't be tolerated."

It's not yet known whether the 36-year-old businesswoman will be allowed to return at a later date once investigations into her behaviour have concluded.

A spokeswoman for "Celebs Go Dating" confirmed her absence, stating: "Nadia has been suspended following improper use of social media."

Filming for the new series - which features Oliva Attwood, Eyal Booker, "Made in Chelsea" star Alik Alfus and TOWIE's Chloe Sims - kicked off a few weeks ago, but bosses are now on a frantic hunt to find a replacement dating expert.

Nadia's suspension comes just weeks after new agent Paul Carrick Brunson was pulled in as Eden Blackman's replacement following his decision to quit this year.

Nadia and Eden had reportedly been feuding behind the scenes on the last series and she implied that bosses should axe him earlier this year.

She said at the time: "I think now there's an opportunity to look at what works, and what maybe doesn't and refresh it. In terms of going into the next series, we could make it something that's phenomenal."
