This Gogglebox star has QUIT the show to find love on Celebs Go Dating

Will you miss her?

One of Gogglebox’s longest running stars has decided to quit the show in a bid to find love on the new season of Celebs Go Dating.

Amy Tapper is swapping the sofa for speed dating when the E4 show returns after five years on the popular Channel 4 series.

The 18-year-old has sat next to her parents Nikki and Jonathan and brother Josh on the show since it began in 2013 and became a favourite for many fans.

But now, she’s ready for a new adventure and sources close to the E4 show say she’s perfect for it.

“Amy has grown up on TV and has always been with her family on Gogglebox so to see her out doing her own thing on Celebs Go Dating will be amazing,” the source told The Sun.

“She comes across as quite shy but she’s really funny and quick-witted. Fans are going to love her.”

And it looks like Amy is taking the opportunity very seriously, telling friends she hopes to “find her soulmate” as well as utilise the show to “point her in the right direction”.

This comes after Amy lost an impressive two stone after she and her family started a health kick earlier this year.

The family admitted that the free takeaway they receive as part of starring on the show had led to a very unhealthy lifestyle and it needed to change.
