Jonathan Cheban has been asked to return to 'Celebs Go Dating' this year to give advice to the new line up
Kim Kardashian West's best friend Jonathan Cheban is set to return to 'Celebs Go Dating'.
The 43-year-old reality television star may not have had any success in the love department when he took part in the programme last year but bosses have reportedly invited him back as they want him to offer some advice to the celebrity hopefuls on the new line up.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Jonathan didn't fall in love when he appeared on the show but he did thoroughly enjoy the experience. He couldn't resist coming back to film some scenes with the new line-up, in which he will offer his advice to those going on their first dates."
However, bosses will no doubt be in for a hard time as it was revealed last year that Jonathan - who also took part in 'Celebrity Big Brother' in 2016 - had demanded security guards accompany him everywhere after Kim, 35, was robbed at gunpoint in Paris last year.
An insider said at the time: "Jonathan more than anyone knows the risks attached to being well known and having designer gear.
"He has seen first-hand with Kim how easy it can be for people to target you. When in Europe Jonathan needs around the clock security to ensure he is safe. Jonathan's known for his designer tastes and often wears 'one off' pieces of jewellery so he knows he's a prime target."
And he'll no doubt be keen to have the same treatment as he did last year with private jets and expensive suites for him and his entourage.
A source said at the time: "Jonathan will be the highest profile star on the reality show and securing someone of his calibre comes at a cost and a certain amount of expectations on the show's producers. Jonathan has demanded a private jet to bring him and his entourage to the UK and a suite for the duration at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel which costs up to £5,000 per night - a total cost of £300,000 for the two months he will stay in the UK.
"Show bosses are referring to him as their star of the show and are set to meet his demands at any cost to ensure he is happy.
"Bosses are also set to secure Jonathan his own personal driver for his time on the show."
