A COUNTY Durham woman who was kicked off a reality TV programme has confirmed rumours that she will appear on a rival show.

Nikita Jasmine was earlier this year asked to leave Married at First Sight after bosses said she "breached" the "agreed code of conduct of behaviour."

The 26-year-old at the time had been on the E4 show before a situation "escalated" off-camera, prompting her to later apologise.

At the time, TV bosses issued a statement which said: “The wellbeing of cast and crew is our utmost priority at all times throughout production and beyond.

“During filming, a situation escalated off-camera and Nikita displayed a level of aggression that was unacceptable and breached our agreed code of conduct on behaviour. As a result, she was asked to leave the experiment.

“All involved have been offered support and Nikita has since apologised and resolved the situation with those involved.”

But taking to Instagram this week, Nikita appeared to confirm speculation on social media which had suggested she is joining Celebs Go Dating, also on E4.

The hit show, which sees celebrities go on dates with members of the public, has seen the likes of Love Island, The Only Way Is Essex and Gogglebox stars since it began in 2016.

On Instagram, Nikita promised to show a "softer and more emotional" side which viewers "did not get to see" on the initial show.

She said: "I've joined the @celebsgodating agency and I can't wait for you all to see the softer, more emotional side of Nikita Jasmin that you didn't get to see on @e4mafsuk as well as the loud, funny gob s**** that I am."

She went on to offer further promises to viewers saying that it would be a "belta" series, prompting the support of well-known TV characters including Nathan Henry from Geordie Shore.

The ninth series is scheduled to launch in early 2022.
