Ella, who tied the knot with Nathanial on the Channel 4 show, went makeup-free for an emotional chat with fans just days after finding fame on the reality series with husband Nathanial.

She said: “I don’t read the comments because of the transphobia.”

“I’m used to it now, but it’s not fair to my family and friends.

“They still want to support me.”

“I just found today a little difficult and I’ll be honest with you guys, so I just took a step back.”

“But I want to say thank you and you helped me through a pretty rough day.”

“I’m not perfect, but I never claim to be perfect, just stick with me, it gets easier!”

Ella is a 29-year-old clinical consultant from Weston-super-Mare who also looks after her elderly grandmother.

When it was first announced that Ella was joining the MAFS cast, there was some speculation among fans that her future groom might not find out about her transition until after they tied the knot.

Because the point of MAFS is that you know nothing about your partner before marriage.

But Ella has refuted these theories and confirmed that her husband was informed the day before their wedding.

Speak with BBC’s NewsbeatShe explained: “As it was the first time Channel 4 had done something like this, I agreed with them that once they had found me a partner, my husband would be informed before the wedding that I was transsexual. “

“He knew I was transgender and transitioning, but he didn’t know anything else about me.”

A Channel 4 spokesperson confirmed to Newsbeat that Ella’s groom had been instructed to “obtain a full consent order” and he was happy to go ahead with the wedding.

They added: “Otherwise, the integrity of the format was maintained.

“Our matchmaking priority is to protect the well-being of the cast and create compatible matches based on a detailed assessment of individual preferences as part of an in-depth, careful matchmaking process.”

Fans had high hopes for Ella and Nathanial, but they suffered a series of failures in the first week.

Although it initially seemed like they were getting along well, fans watched as they got into a heated argument during their honeymoon.

Now it’s been reported that Ella cheated on Nathanial – who identifies as pansexual – with another groom on the show.
