MAFS star Ella reveals life-changing career change I realised my worth

Married At First Sight UK star Ella Morgan has revealed that she's made a major career change after her time on the show.

The 29-year-old, who was the first transgender contestant to appear on the E4 dating show, said that she's quit her job as a clinical consultant and wants to move into TV presenter.

Speaking to OK! in an exclusive interview, Ella said, "I've realised my worth and that for me was the best thing to come out of this.

"I’ve left my job and what I want to do going forward is documentaries, TV presenting. I’m lucky in that there’s space for me in this industry – there aren’t many trans presenters."

She added that she wants to be on daytime TV or "evening prime time".

"I'm hoping it will all be worth it – I've manifested this since I was younger," she said.

"I knew I was destined to spread the message about trans issues. That's what feel I was put on this Earth for. I don't want to sit in an office consulting patients – I want to be on TV annoying everyone."

Ella said that she would love to take on I'm A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here in the future.

"I want to be a spokesperson for the [transgender] community but also have fun at the same time – like doing the Jungle and things like that.

"I see it as my dream and my dreams are coming true!"

While Ella was matched with Nathaniel Valentino on E4's MAFS, their relationship didn't work out and she instead discovered a romantic spark with JJ Slater.

As detailed in the last episode of MAFS, Ella and JJ decided to part ways as friends – and now Ella has decided to focus on herself.

"I'm going to stay single for a bit and focus on my career, " she told OK!, adding that she needs some time to heal after her experience on the show.

"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.”

Married at First Sight UK is available to stream on Channel 4
