Stephen and his husband Daniel Lustig-Webb, both hairdressers who left the Channel 4 reality series together in 2023, surprised their followers with the announcement of their divorce after acknowledging they had "grown apart". Stephen has had a tough time recently, having to bow out of Dancing On Ice due to a severe injury during training. Now, he's ready to return to the small screen and possibly find a new romantic partner on the E4 series.

An insider revealed to The Sun: "Stephen is set to sign up for Celebs Go Dating after successful advanced talks with E4 producers. Bosses were really keen to get him as soon as they heard he and Stephen had split as they know viewers will invest in his path to finding love again, and he's already a big favourite with Channel 4 viewers after years on Gogglebox.

"Stephen is also really keen to have some fun again after a difficult few months, and he's also raring to get back on TV after having to step down from Dancing on Ice due to injury. He was gutted when that fell through, but he feels excited to take on a new project. He is realistic that he may not find Mr Right, but he is up for a laugh on the dating scene."
