MAFS UK unveils 4 new couples amid rumours of Ella 'cheating' with another groom
There will be more singles joining the show than ever before.
Eight new singles are set to join the Married at First Sight UK cast, aiming to shake up the experiment and ruffle the feathers of all those taking part.
While the show has introduced intruder couples in the past, it'll be slightly different this year, with more singles being introduced than ever before. The singles will all join the series at separate points over the next two weeks.
Ahead of the new entrants into the season, rumours have spread of bride Ella "cheating" on Nathanial with one of the intruder grooms. According to MailOnline, Ella shares a "passionate kiss" with the unknown groom later in the series.
A TV source told the publication: "There's no denying that Ella and Nathanial were instantly attracted to each other the day of their wedding. But Ella's natural type is a straight man with masculine energy, so one of the other grooms ticked more of her boxes.
"She didn't want to hurt Nathanial or go against the process because being part of the show means so much to her. Ella was looking for love, and with the other groom, he adores her body and mind, and they had a much better chance of enjoying a long-lasting relationship together."
In a statement to RadioTimes.com, a spokesperson for Channel 4 said: "We don't comment on speculation. Viewers will have to tune in to find out what does or doesn't happen as the series develops - there's still eight weeks to go."
While the identity of the intruder groom who reportedly shared a kiss with Ella is unknown, Channel 4 have revealed the eight new singles set to shake things up in the experiment.
