E4’s Celebs Go Dating is facing some backlash.
Speaking to The Mirror, a civilian dater accused the celebrity dating series of manipulating a recent episode. Adele Woodward claimed Celebs Go Dating of purposely editing footage to make her look “fat and miserable.”
After going on a date with Lee Ryan, Adele told the publication she believed they “edited very badly on purpose.” She also slammed the producers for using a dated photograph of her.
During the episode of Celebs Go Dating, Ryan wasn’t happy. He revealed to the camera that Adele was not what he was expecting. He also claimed she looked nothing like the picture of her he was shown beforehand.
Portrayed As A Catfish
Adele Woodward also believed the series of setting her up to look as if she had attempted to catfish Ryan. Celebs Go Dating social media chatter agreed.
“The date, the way it is edited, makes it look like I’m miserable and not speaking. It’s not the case. There were four hours of footage there. They chose to pick those bits where I’m not speaking and looking unimpressed.”
Woodward also revealed that she was not a die-hard fan of Lee’s band, Blue. According to the civilian dater, the Celebs Go Dating producers prompted her to discuss the band several times during the date.
The Outdated Photo
Woodward criticized the producers for purposely using a photo from four years ago.
“That’s what they’ve shown him, knowing full well that’s not what I look like.” She exclaimed.
