Channel 4 star ‘axed’ as she’s accused of ‘trolling co-star’

She's been suspended for "improper use of social media"

| Updated:

Lady Nadia Essex has been suspended from Celebs Go Dating following accusations she set up fake Twitter profiles to troll other users including former co-star Eden Blackman.

The reality star served as a matchmaker on the E4 dating show which aims to pair single celebrities up with members of the public.

A rep for the programme confirmed: “Nadia has been suspended following improper use of social media.”

News of Lady Nadia’s suspension was broken by The Sun, which claimed she’d set up fake Twitter profiles to troll other users.

Now, her former co-star Eden has come forward to say he believes Lady Nadia may have used two fake profiles to troll him in the past.

The two Twitter profiles in question were reportedly used to hurl insults at Eden while also lavishing praise on Nadia.

Eden told the newspaper he wants a public apology from Nadia if she’s behind the accounts.

ED! has contacted Lady Nadia’s rep and Lime Pictures, which makes Celebs Go Dating, for comment.

Eden served as matchmaker alongside Lady Nadia until March, when he quit the show amid allegations of a feud with his co-star.

Nadia, however, has vehemently denied a falling out, tweeting earlier his year: “In response to further reports today that Eden left Celebs Go Dating because of a fall out with me, I want to set the record straight that his decision to leave the show was for his own reasons and was absolutely nothing to do with me.”

Eden himself has said he chose to leave the show to focus on his other work projects including relaunching his own dating app and his music PR agency.
