Chatting exclusively about the latest twists and turns, Anna teased: "We're halfway through the series and it's definitely proving to be, I genuinely think, one of the best we've done in a long time. All the celebrities are completely conducting to the agency and lots of them are taking on board the dating advice, but lots of them are also pushing back as well."
