Nadia Essex left England for the beaches of Barbados amid rumours she is embroiled in a bitter feud with her Celebs Go Dating co star Eden Blackman.
The lovable blonde was meant to be taking some time out to relax on the paradise island in the Caribbean.
Indeed, she was spotted taking a dip in the crystal blue sea and chilling on a beach towel with a huge book beside her. But, Nadia refused to switch off her mobile phone and suffered the consequences moments later.
She was seen having a mare in a heated telephone exchange and later in tears amid news that her show is reportedly still awaiting a series five commission because of Eden’s off screen behaviour.
Eden and Nadia dish out dating advice on the popular E4 dating show, which this season featured the likes of Gemma Collins and Sam Thompson on the search for love.
But insiders say that off set they are far from friendly towards one another, and they struggle to get a long. A source told The Sun: “Nadia and Eden’s feud is getting worse and it was so awkward by the end of the finale. Everyone was so happy for a break.

“Bosses are worried the show won’t be commissioned for a fifth series because of everything that’s gone on between them – and because of the negativity surrounding Eden.
“Nadia and Eden need to make up and sort it out to keep bosses happy. They want the stars and their dates making the headlines, not the warring experts.”
Viewers would be devastated to see the popular series end, but their row spilled into the public sphere this week following the series four finale. And Eden’s Instagram post left fans wondering if he was taking a swipe at Nadia’s weight.
Alongside an image of himself after the grand finale and wrap party, Eden wrote: “It’s very easy to total get a finale outfit wrong, try too hard, mix up your fashions and end up looking utterly ridiculous. I think the celebs have done a great job of knowing their shape and what looks good on them…I hope I’ve done the same.”
Fans believed it may have been about Nadia’s finale outfit, where she stunned in a black dress and thigh-high boots. One fan wrote: “Nadia cuts you out of her picture then you write this which is blatantly about her finale outfit. Gutted you [two] don’t get along. Need more series in my life.”
And a source told The Sun: “Eden’s post was picked up by a lot of the celebs and people who work on the show. It seems really unnecessary and cruel.”
