An insider tells The sun: “Laura is the latest star to join Celebs Go Dating – and she’s only been single for a few hours.

“[Laura] is a great addition to the line-up and will be really entertaining on screen.”


They added, “Dane might not be too impressed to see her trying to catch another guy on national television — especially since their breakup is so fresh.”

Laura, from Stirling, became one of the most recognizable faces in the show’s fourth season. The 32-year-old former stewardess was another unlucky Scots lover, teaming up with Wes Nelson, Jack Fowler and then Paul Knops, although the second-placed couple split shortly after leaving the villa. She is now living her best life in Dubai.

Laura reportedly split from the Another Level singer hours before signing up for the E4 dating show.


The couple made their split public on Thursday.

If the rumors are true, Laura will be collaborating with the likes of Pete Wicks, Sinitta and Gary Lucy in the upcoming season.
