Not sure how to spend your Valentine’s Day? Well a fancy meal out might be off the table, you could always make yourself feel better by watching some celebrities experience an awkward dinner date with their ex-partners.
BBC Three’s BAFTA nominated show Eating with My Ex is returning for a third series, and to kick off the drama, they’re starting with a bumper set of four celebrity specials.
Be prepared for some awkward reunions as these celebs dine with their former lovers.
Here’s a list of all the celebs taking part.
The reality TV star is best known for appearing on the fourth series of Love Island. She left the show with Wes Nelson – however, the pair eventually split.
She then signed up for Celebs Go Dating where she met The Only Way is Essex star Demi Sims. The pair hit it off and enjoyed a romance together, but things didn’t last.
Following their split, Megan said: “We really did get along, but I think it was more as friends. She’s beautiful, a lovely person and she’s funny, but there was no sexual chemistry there.”
She added: “We only ever kissed and I couldn’t get past the point. I was doubting myself and I thought, ‘Maybe I don’t like girls,’ but it wasn’t that – I just saw her more as a friend.”
The younger sister of The Only Way is Essex star Chloe Sims, Demi joined the ITVBe show in 2018.
She entered into a relationship with Megan in 2019, however, things soon fizzled out.
Demi is now dating Too Hot To Handle‘s Francessca Farago (the one who kept losing the money because she and Harry Jowsey couldn’t keep their hands off each other.)
The Only Way is Essex star will sit down for dinner with his on/off ex Yazmin Oukhellou.
The pair started dating in 2017, following his longterm relationship with Danielle Armstrong.
Lockie and Yaz enjoyed two years together before calling it off in 2019. Since then, they’ve rekindled their romance, however, in February 2021, Yaz revealed they’d broken up again following an explosive row in Dubai.
Yaz is best known for starring on ITV Be’s TOWIE, alongside her former boyfriend James Lock.
The pair will reunite on Eating with My Ex. And it sounds like we shouldn’t see too much food flying or drinks being thrown at one another, as the duo appear to be amicable.
Following their split, Yaz said: “James and I have split up amicably. I love James but we’re not good together.”
Vinegar Strokes is the stage name of Daniel Jacobs. Many will recognise the ultra fierce drag queen for appearing on the first season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK in 2019.
She finished eighth on the BBC Three show.
Nathan is best known for appearing on MTV’s Geordie Shore which he joined in 2015.
The same year, he started dating Craig Richards – however, the pair later split, which saw Nathan take part on E4’s Celebs Go Dating in 2019.
Media personality and columnist Ryan-Mark Parsons is best known for being the youngest ever candidate on BBC One’s reality The Apprentice.
Eating with My Ex will see him go for dinner with one of his exes, but will they be able to settle their differences?
Mim is a radio presenter, spoken word artist and broadcaster.
Many will recognise him from his BBC show Mim Shaikh: Finding Dad, where the broadcaster – who hadn’t seen his dad since he was a baby – went on a journey to investigate his family secrets.
McKenzie is an English judoka, who competed at the men’s 60kg division.
He also appeared in, and made it to the final of, Celebrity Big Brother 10 in September 2012.
Tallia is a British Singer who was first discovered by Elton John at the young age of just 13. Since then, she has gone on to release singles and appear on a number of reality TV shows.
In 2018, when she appeared on Celebs Go Dating, she received a shock when her ex, racing driver Seb Morris, was also added to the line-up.
The pair will come face-to-face once again on Eating with My Ex.
Seb Morris is a professional racing driver from Marford.
He enjoyed a romance with Tallia before the pair went their separate ways.
They reunited on Celebs Go Dating back in 2018, and let’s just say it didn’t go too well, as Tallia had some choice words for him.
