She may not have found love on the last series of The Only Way is Essex, but Gemma Collins's luck could be about to change.

The reality star has confirmed she'll be appearing on the fourth series of E4's Celebs Go Dating.

Gemma will date members of the public alongside Muggy Mike from Love Island and Made in Chelsea's Sam Thompson.

She told the BBC earlier this month that she'd had "a bit of a rough ride" this year but her luck was changing.

"I was like when is it going to be my time, this has to be my year. But now everything is turning around for me and I'm so thankful for it," Gemma said.

Child star Jonathan Lipnicki will also appear in the series.

He's best known for charming film fans as the boy in the Stuart Little films and as Renee Zellweger's son in Jerry Maguire.

He'll be hoping to find romance with British singletons after signing up with the show's celebrity dating agency, which pairs the "famous" participants with daters from all walks of life.

Now 27, he's stepping back into the spotlight and will have love gurus Eden Blackman and Nadia Essex to help him.

The actor has spoken about suffering from anxiety and being subjected to "gay slurs" while at school.

He'll also be joined by double Olympic Taekwondo champion Jade Jones, singer Tallia Storm and comedian London Hughes.

The line-up for the fourth series of the matchmaking show is completed by another Made in Chelsea star - Ollie Locke.
