Celebrity Ex on the Beach 2022: ex-Love Island star and former Manchester cop joins MTV show

Fans of Love Island will recognise Michael Boateng already!

The second season of Celebrity Ex on the Beach has been confirmed, two years after the celebrity spin off first hit our screens in 2019.

The show will air on MTV later this year, and will feature a host of celebrities looking for love, soaking up the sun in the sunny island of Gran Canaria.

Due to the nature of the show, and the name, ‘Ex on the Beach’ it won’t be plain sailing sand, sea and laughs, expect high drama, and some explosive arguments.

Just like other reality shows such as Towie, I’m A Celebrity, Love Island, Geordie Shore etc, new exes are introduced into the villa, with the new ‘Shack of Secrets’ with secret missions handed out to certain members of the cast.

It’s a reality TV lover’s dream, as this year the constants are from Love Island, The Only Way Is Essex, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, and Geordie Shore, just to name a few.

Only one contestant from Manchester, Michael Boateng, will be taking part as part of the original cast.
