Inside Masked Singer Joel Dommett’s love life – from catfish scandal to marriage
The Masked Singer presenter and comedian Joel Dommett is returning to TV soon to host the new series on ITV.
Hunky funnyman Joel, who is best known for his roles in Skins, Live in Chelsea and Impractical Jokers, and for also starring on I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! in 2016. He then went on to become the I'm a Celeb Extra Camp host.
But who has he dated?
From the bizarre story of how he found his ex amid a chaotic blackmail scandal to marrying his soulmate Hannah Cooper, here's inside Joel's dating life…
The star is married to model Hannah Cooper who is signed to Next Model agency.
Hannah, who has over 62,000 followers on Instagram, first met Joel on the social media platform.
Joel previously revealed on Loose Women that his now-wife slid into his private messages in 2016.
During the interview on the daytime show, he said: "We met on Instagram.
"She sent me a cat emoji with the heart eyes. That is the modern equivalent of the old phrase 'you had me at hello,' now it’s 'you had me at cat emoji'."
It wasn't until May 2017 that the pair made their first public appearance together.
But the duo moved fast. Shortly after Christmas in 2017 Joel revealed that he had proposed to Hannah and she has said "yes".
He made the announcement by filming a toilet door which turned from "vacant" to "engaged".
Speaking to Metro.co.uk about the decision to get married at the time, he said: "Honestly, it’s a really easy decision for me.
"It was a nothing decision, this is the person I want to spend the rest of my life with. Its easy. Nothing feels difficult about talking about the future.
"Whereas I felt like in the past it felt weird talking about the future, but now it’s like of course we’re going to spend the rest of our lives together."
The pair wed on September 10, 2019, in a stunning but small ceremony in Mykonos Greece.
The story of how Joel met his ex Natalia Noir, from Swansea, is a rather bizarre one, that's for sure.
The pair met after the comedian was blackmailed by a catfish online pretending to be Natalia.
For years, Natalia said a scammer had been using her pictures to get men to go on web camera and perform sex acts that the scammer would then use to blackmail them.
Joel has spoken openly before on what happened after the footage of him masturbating went viral when he starred in I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! a few years ago.
The video re-circulated then and saw Joel sitting in front of his laptop engaged in a solo sex act in his own home, with his face in view.
Joel said the sexual incident occurred after an account on Twitter with Natalia's pictures on it and under the name Staci Taylor added him.
Finding her attractive, he said he followed her back and after chatting they went on Skype to have some fun – or so Joel thought.
In a bid to track down the scammer, Joel reached out to the real Natalia to inform her that somebody was using her pictures to blackmail guys online.
Joel put the pictures of Natalia into a Google image search and managed to track down her Instagram account.
He then messaged the beauty: "Hey, just to let you know someone’s using your face on the internet to catfish people — are you aware of it?"
Joel recalled to The Sun previously how Natalia responded: "Yes, I’m aware of it, it’s been going on for, like, three years.
"They’ve been using my private Facebook photos, it’s really horrible. I’ve shut it down twice but they keep coming back."
Joel said he wrote back: "Oh my God, this is terrible, do you want to meet up?"
The funnyman then met up with the Russian stylist and the pair went on a few dates together.
He told the publication previously: "She asked where I lived and we ended up meeting up and going on a couple of dates.
"It was really, really weird going on a date with someone who you have, like, basically… I went on a date with someone who I thought I was masturbating to in the first place."
And the pair even stayed friends despite their romance not lasting.
Natalia told The Sun in 2016: "We were dating for a while. It was great, it was a really good time.
"He’s a real gentleman, that’s the best way to describe him.
"We tried to see each other as much as we could. I had to go back to Wales but we still stayed in touch. We kept good friends."
Asked if they talk often, she joked: "Yeah, we occasionally catch up, but not on Skype!"
