The music extravaganza – which has previously been headlined by the likes of Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, and the rapper’s wife Beyoncé – is held across Labor Day weekend.

‘Now is the time to protect the health of our artists, fans, partners and community as well as focus on our support for organizations and individuals fighting for social justice and equality in our country.

In March it was claimed Emilia had turned to celebrity dating app Raya to find love – before swiftly deleting it again.  

Emilia was said to have set up a profile on the app, which is targeted at ‘the rich and famous’.

A source told The Sun: ‘Dating has been pretty hard in lockdown but some friends talked Emilia into going on Raya. She agreed to give it a whirl.’

But a separate insider added: ‘She recently deleted her profile as it’s not what she hoped it would be.’ 

MailOnline approached reps for Emilia for comment at the time. 

In 2019 it was reported Emilia had split from her director boyfriend Charlie McDowall after about a year of dating, with work commitments being to blame.

Charlie is now engaged to Lily Collins after he popped the question in September last year, the pair spent lockdown together in Los Angeles in the midst of the global pandemic. 

Emilia confirmed her single status in March last year, saying: ‘I am single right now. Dating in this industry is interesting. 

‘I have a lot of funny anecdotes, a lot of stuff I can say at a fun dinner. I was [dating actors] but I’m not now.’

The star also dated Family Guy’s Seth McFarlane for six months in 2012 and 2013.

Geordie Shore is being rebranded into a DATING show in a bid to halt falling ratings

Geordie Shore veteran Chloe Ferry is returning to the MTV show this week for its new rebranded dating series – where stars will take their pick from 70 singletons.

The reality favourite, 25, plus co-stars including Amelia Lily, Nathan Henry, Abby Holborn and three newbies, are filming Geordie Shore: A Shot At Love in Newcastle.

They have all been in quarantine as part of the Covid-19 safety measures brought in by show bosses, with the stars set to try and find love in the new re-worked format.

Each Geordie will be given 10 singletons to scrutinise as potential partners and eventually choose three per person to join them in the house.

It’s hoped the new format will halt the falling ratings of the show, which has spawned stars including Vicky Pattison and Charlotte Crosby.

A source said: ‘Geordie Shore has been in desperate need of freshening up and bosses feel turning the format into a dating show will do just that.

‘It means there will be many more new faces thrown into the mix who are bound to cause some arguments and make great TV.

‘It’s in desperate need of freshening up’: A source said the new format is an attempt to ‘keep the show going’ (pictured original cast members Gaz Beadle, Jay Gardner and James Tindle Front Row: Charlotte Leticia Crosby, Vicky Pattison, Holly Hagan in 2011)

‘But the tweak in format is seen as the last throw of the dice to keep the show going.’

Geordie Shore first aired on MTV in 2011 and plans for a big 10-year anniversary series in Colombia were scrapped earlier this year due to the pandemic.

Instead, stars from past and present filmed a two-part special called Geordie Shore: Talk of the Toon aired last month. 

The new dating format seems to have come at just the right time for Chloe, with the blonde beauty recently splitting from Hollyoaks actor Owen Warner, 21. 

She confirmed they had ended things last weekend, saying that they live ‘very different lifestyles’ and that it wasn’t the ‘right time’ for their romance.    

The Geordie Shore star went Instagram official with the actor in May during her Portugal break and hinted they were engaged at the time. 

Writing a lengthy caption to her Story, Chloe penned: ‘Getting a lot of messages asking if me and Owen are together just to clarify I am SINGLE.

‘We just live very different lifestyles and it’s just not the right time at the moment… what will be will be… also I’m very grateful to have had some amazing memories with the boy amazing person inside and out.’  

Meanwhile, the Geordie Shore anniversary special was reportedly thrown into chaos when stars fumed about having to complete a 10-day isolation period after arriving in Colombia.

Sources told The Sun in March that the cast were also allegedly furious to learn they’d have their phones taken away. 

The popular MTV show was said to be relocating to South America so the cast can still party amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Although it is not known when filming for the series was set to start, Colombia was on the UK government’s list of red countries at the time.

Arrivals from Red List nations will have to quarantine at a Government-designated hotel for 10 days, with hotel quarantine starting Monday.

This will cost travellers up to £1,750 each for a ‘quarantine package’, although the Government is paying the upfront cost and will bill them afterwards.

Several former stars who no longer regularly appear on Geordie Shore are thought to have been asked back for the special, however not everyone has agreed.

It was recently reported that Gary Beadle has allegedly refused to take part as he’s ‘grown up and moved on’.

While MTV bosses are also thought to be talking to Scotty T about making a return for the show – years after he was axed when snaps of him snorting cocaine emerged.

There has already been Geordie Shore special, Geordie Shore: Their Story, which aired in 2020 and saw a range of stars reflecting on their childhood journeys to life in the spotlight. 

Holly Hagan, Sophie Kasaei, Marnie Simpson, Aaron Chalmers, Nathan Henry, Abbie Holborn and James Tindale also appeared on the spin-off.
