The former Nickelodeon UK & Ireland presenter and This Morning & Good Morning Britain (GMB) relationship expert and Paul C Brunson will be helping the likes of Love Island's Georgia Steel, Atomic Kitten star Kerry Katona, The Only Way Is Essex's Pete Wicks, Megan McKenna, Ibiza Weekender's head rep David Potts, Waterloo Road and and Hollyoaks actor Chelsee Healey to find love.

However, speaking to OK! online, new coach Anna revealed that it wasn't the first time she had met one of the famous faces!

Confessing that she had previously worked with Love Island star Georgia on Nickelodeon TV show Camp Orange when she was a teenager, Anna said that initially it was strange to see her walking into the agency.

Georgia was part of Team Yorky Corkies in the first series of Camp Orange UK, Nickelodeon's game show in which friends teamed up to take on the ultimate 'bush' challenge (Georgia teamed up with her BFF Elsie Cussons), in 2011. Anna hosted the series Jamie Rickers.

"Georgia’s an interesting one for me, she was actually the first celebrity I met joining the agency," Anna said. "When she walked in I sort of had a bit of an eye roll, like oh my god, here we go.

"I’d known her from a previous show in my kids telly days when she was a fresh faced teenager. She is now all grown up. It's a bit like mumma's come home".

Admitting that her previous working relationship with Georgia meant that she treated her differently from the other stars, Anna continued: "I’m probably even more strict with Georgia, because we go back. She’s a good girl but she’s got some work to do.

She added: "I think Georgia’s brilliant, she’s beautiful and certainly one of the most confident people I’ve ever met. Even when she was 13 confidence was something that was in her bones.

"I think we need to draw out that little soft marshmallow that was inside."

Anna also opened up about her connection to Georgia on social media, as she took to Instagram on her first day at the Celebrity Dating Agency and shared a selfie with the reality starlet.

Posing with her mouth open in disbelief, Anna wrote: "Now THIS is a blast from the feels like only yesterday I was wrangling a 13 year old @geesteelx on @nickelodeonuk #camporange...

"And today we're reunited for @celebsgodating where I'll be helping guide this now young lady in love #blastfromthepast #ifeelold".

Discussing how excited she was to be guiding Georgia and the rest of the stars in their quest for love, Anna added to OK! online: "To be able to get the call and come on board with Celebs Go Dating was a dream come true. I’m so, so honoured.

"I don’t think it’s really sunk in yet, because it’s a big show and people have a lot of love for it. I just really want to do the show and the viewers justice."

Celebs Go Dating series six is slated to premiere on E4 in 2019. Previous contestants on the show include Diversity crew member and fellow Nickelodeon UK presenter Perri Kiely. Mottingham comedian Rob Beckett narrates.

Georgia appeared on the 2018 series of Love Island with another Nickelodeon star: Eyal Booker, one of the models in Nickelodeon UK & Ireland's Nick@Nite idents!:
