Former Celebs Go Dating expert Nadia Essex has addressed concerned fans and insisted she didn’t have a seizure following a live video which emerged over the weekend.
The star explained she had merely fallen asleep after an evening of playing drinking games on Saturday night and forgot to turn her Live off on social media.
Also denying she had taken drugs, the star laughed off the concern but thanked her followers for their messages.
A snippet of the live clip later emerged online on TikTok, which appeared to worry punters as Nadia – who resigned from Celebs Go Dating in 2018 – was seen seemingly half-asleep as she sat in a chair in front of the camera, her head rolling around, with her eyes appearing half open as she adjusted her hair, which had fallen over her face.
Today Nadia insisted it was alcohol-related and explained she merely fell asleep out of pure exhaustion, while also thanking followers for their messages.
Sharing a video to her Instagram on Monday morning, Nadia, who welcomed a baby boy named Ezekiel in March last year, lifted a bottle of water to the screen, as she said: ‘Here’s me drinking water, if only I’d done that on Saturday night.

‘Guys, honestly, seriously, thank you so much for all your messages, I appreciae it.
‘Everything is absolutey fine. I had a babysitter in, I let my hair down, I played drinking games. I thought I was one of the cool kids and I’m not cool.’
She went on: ‘That’s it, I feel asleep! I was bloody exhausted. It’s very, very hard, trying to get through lockdown at the moment.
‘I got bored, I forgot to turn off the live and went to sleep, that’s it.’
Nadia went on to explain that she didn’t have a seizure – with some fans seemingly worried as such following the clip – and that it was alcohol to blame, denying she took drugs.
The host of The Clueless Mum podcast said: ‘Everything’s, good, thank you for the messages. Everything is ok.
