RELATIONSHIP guru Nadia Essex has spoken out about reality TV love and says it is possible to find long-lasting true love on the telly.

“Some people want to be doctor’s, some want to be famous and I don’t think such a negative association with tv dating is warranted.”

“No relationships these days last forever, on or off TV we have such a high divorce rate it’s extremely rare people will stay together forever.
“We are not a monogamous species by our very nature so staying together is a choice and one that requires a huge amount of work to keep going and keep the spark.
“It is possible to find long lasting true love but, Unfortunately, nothing in life lasts forever.
