Alexandra Burke and Vick Hope in talks to join next series of Celebs Go Dating, says Anna Williamson

ALEXANDRA Burke and Vick Hope are in talks to join the next series of Celebs Go Dating.

Relationship expert Anna Williamson has revealed that the two women are at the top of her list to find love with the agency when it returns to screens.

Speaking to The Sun Online as she launches the Red Letter Days in partnership with Family Action mumpaid labour campaign, she revealed she gets a say on who signs up and she has her sights set on the two women.

She explained: "A friend I want to try and persuade to join is Alexandra Burke. I would love her to join.

"And I recently went on Radio 1 and I didn’t realise that Vick Hope was, in her own words, having a dating nightmare.

"I don’t think there is anyone more beautiful than that girl, so I would love to get her on."

Pop singer Alex is currently single following her split from footballer Angus McDonald after 15 months of dating.

The 32-year-old revealed they were together shortly after her split from fiance Josh Ginnelly, but the couple found it hard to work during lockdown.

Radio presenter Vick was previously in a four-year relationship Tom Rosenthal but the pair split before she took part in Strictly in 2018.

It is still undecided what the format of the next series of Celebs Go Dating will take after the last series was forced to be altered during the pandemic.

Anna and her fellow dating expert Paul Carrick Brunson guided a host of celebrities, including Joey Essex, Chloe Ferry and Wayne Lineker, to find love while staying in a huge mansion together.

The series saw Tom Zanetti find love with Made In Chelsea star Sophie Hermann and Anna is convinced they will go the distance.

She told us: "It was an interesting development. It was definitely a slow burner. They are both lovely, lovely people and I think they really do enrich each other’s lives in so many ways.

"I would be really, really happy if it did last. I have so much time for them. It would be one of the loveliest weddings ever. If Tom and Sophie get married, I insist on being a bridesmaid."


Red Letter Days has teamed up with family support charity Family Action to recognise and raise awareness of the heightened pressures families have faced after a tumultuous year.

They’ve launched a campaign to claim back 100,000 hours of ‘mumpaid labour’ ahead of Mother’s Day, to thank and repay mums, parents and carers for the unpaid additional responsibilities they’ve shouldered over the last year.

The campaign is something Anna feels strongly about as a parent of two and she will be taking part in a free virtual Q & A hosted by Red Letter Days on 13th March .
