Married at First Sight's Nikita Jasmine has explained to Digital Spy why she preferred joining Celebs Go Dating over dating apps.

Nikita's previous attempts at dating on reality TV didn't work out as she planned, so she's been looking at alternate avenues to find true love at last.

When Digital Spy recently chatted with Nikita, she spoke about why she preferred going the reality TV route again as opposed to simply signing up for a dating site.

"It's not that I don't believe in them because I've got friends that have met people on Tinder, Hinge, whatever and they're still with them now," she told us. "But, with me, I like meeting people in the flesh. I've been in two three-year relationships. So three, 10-month gap, three years, and I knew the lads before I got with them. I met them through mutual friends, partying, and so they weren't complete strangers.

"I don't know, I just think like, messaging someone you've never met, what if they're a catfish? What if they're a f**king serial killer? You know what I mean? It is [scary], but I'm not against them. Listen, there's been so many blossoming relationships from them, but it's not my thing, I'd just rather meet the guy in the flesh. If we bond we bond, if we don't, see you later!

"I like honest people. I don't like Billy Bullshitters so when you meet people, and they pussyfoot around and act all sweet and innocent, I hate that type of shit."

The reality star also mentioned that the dating agents on Celebs Go Dating can personally match her dates to her different attractions and interests.

"I'm young, I'm a free bird... like it will be a laugh," she said of joining the E4 show. "And I did want to meet new people and I do have a specific type, and I wanted to like try and sway away from that, which is what I did.

"You've got to remember, we can all sit there and go 'I like brunettes, I like slim builds, I like muscle'. They [the agents] don't f**king listen, they look at values. So I'm a very family-oriented person, I'm very loyal, like, I've never cheated on anyone, and I can understand the people I dated had those type of morals.

"But facially, wouldn't be what I'd go for, say if I was in like a nightclub or whatever."

Celebs Go Dating airs Mondays through Thursdays at 9pm on E4.
