There’s no stopping Nella Rose right now, and now she can officially add TV presenter to her impressive CV as she’s been unveiled as the brand new co-host of MTV show Catfish UK!

That’s right, 24-year-old Nella will replace Julie Adenuga to co-host the second series alongside usual host Oobah Butler.

The exciting news was announced this morning (Wednesday 11th May) on social media, with influencer Nella writing: ‘ITS OFFICIAL! You are looking at the new host of #CATFISHUK 🥺🥺🥺🙏🏾🥳 To be a major part of one of my favorite shows just feels so surreal 🥺 I feel like a real TV presenter now 😭 Can’t wait for you guys to watch !!!’. (sic)

Nella then wrote: ‘I can’t believe I’m a TV presenter 🥺’.

Oobah also shared the news to his own account, welcoming Nella to the Catfish UK family.

He wrote: ‘#catfishuk is back! And I’m joined by my new co-host, the amazing @nellarose. She is such an amazing person. Ella kind, hilarious, she loves sparkling water, and a friend for life. This series has completely raised the game in terms of deception, and I can’t wait to share @MTVCatfishUK’. (sic)

Fans of Nella are clearly over the moon at the news, with many commenting on their excitement.

One wrote: ‘Ahhhh amazing Nella!!!! Congratulations 👏👏❤️❤️❤️❤️’. with another adding: ‘This is INSANE!!!!!! THE BIGGEST WILDEST CONGRATULATIONS!!!!’. A third then wrote: ‘OMG!!!! Yayyyyy!! Congratulations babe!! We love to see it😍😍🔥🔥🔥’. (sic)

Despite a UK version initially being talked about way back in 2016, Catfish UK didn’t actually air until April last year, with Oobah and former host Julie Adenuga taking the reins from American hosts Nev Shulman and Kamie Crawford.

The show, which is based on the 2010 film Catfish, helps the UK public reveal the truth about their online relationships, and in turn, attempt to identify a ‘Catfish’.

Series one was made up of 10 episodes in total, featuring members of the public including Emma & Harlin, Neil and Jasmin, Tasheeka and Aaron, Emma and Harry, and Jordan and Austin.

Check out all of the TV shows we can’t wait for the return of:

stranger things

Although season four of Netflix show Stranger Things was all set to land in 2020, production was postponed due to the Coronvirus pandemic.
It was later confirmed Volume 1 of Stranger Things season four will land on 27th May 2022, with Volume 2 landing on 1st July.

Another roaring Netflix success, Squid Game had us all hooked when it was released in 2021. Breaking records and topping streaming charts, the show proved incredibly popular and after THAT ending, left us all wanting more.

Show creator Hwang Dong-hyuk has confirmed that season two is officially happening, and has even hinted of ‘talks’ over a third season!


Season one of BBC drama Bodyguard, starring Richard Madden and Keeley Hawes, had the nation hooked with a whopping 17 million tuning in to the series finale.

Although creator Jed Mercurio confirmed there’s going to be a second series, the BBC are yet to announce when it will arrive, but we expect it will be late 2022.


With the almighty cliff-hanger ending of You series two, fans were over the moon when Netflix confirmed a third series, which arrived on Friday 15th October.

As if that wasn’t enough, bosses have now confirmed a fourth series of the hit show, although we don’t have a release just yet. However, filming did start in March 2022!

dead to me

In July 2020, Netflix confirmed American series Dead To Me will return for a third and final series! Will any of the fan theories turn out to be true?

The show will return in ‘fall 2022’, so that’s between September and December!

A start date hasn’t yet been revealed, but it has been confirmed that Martin will return as PC Chris Carson.


BBC prison drama Time received a 100% score from Rotten Tomatoes when it landed in June 2021, so it’s no surprise bosses have renewed the show for a second series.

Main actors Sean Bean and Stephen Graham won’t appear in the second series, with the show turning their attention on an all-female prison.

Although no official start date for Catfish series two has been announced just yet, we imagine it will land on MTV in the coming months.
