Ella Morgan's time on Married At First Sight UK was far from boring, with the reality star ending the experiment single after two failed marriages.
With MAFS behind her, Ella has revealed that she's slowing down her dating life for the time behind, noting: "I've got a lot of healing to do from the show."
Speaking to OK! in an exclusive chat, Ella said that she's still reeling from the end of her relationship with JJ Slater after the couple amicably parted ways in the final episode.
“The final vows were the hardest moment for me and at the time, I didn’t really know whether I wanted to leave him or just be friends,” she said, adding that her relationships on the show – which include first MAFS husband Nathaniel Valentino – left her "slightly traumatised".
“I think I’m still processing our break-up and our relationship.”
While Ella was originally matched with Nathaniel Valentino on E4's MAFS, their relationship didn't work out and she instead discovered a romantic spark with JJ Slater.
Now that her relationship with JJ is over, Ella revealed that she's still friends with the Essex-based fashion brand owner – but she's focusing on herself for now.
"I'm going to stay single for a bit and focus on my career, " she said. "I’ve realised I’m not ready for a relationship so I’m going to have a glow-up and go out with the girls.
“I’ve got a lot of healing to do from the show and a lot of work to do on myself that I didn’t realise until the show – I think that was clear from me watching it and people commenting on social media.”
Speaking about JJ, Ella said that they chat on the phone everyday.
“I wanted a boyfriend but I found an amazing best friend,” she beamed. “He’s just the most amazing soul and he’s changed my life for the better.
"He’s the first guy really who’s ever just accepted me and seen me as Ella. I was loved and accepted by a guy who usually I thought would not look at me twice, with him being an Essex boy and a real lads’ lad.”
