Married At First Sight star Ella Ding is joining the cast of British reality show Made In Chelsea as the love interest of star Miles Nazaire.
Yahoo Lifestyle can reveal the pair have been chatting for months after Miles started crushing on Ella whilst watching her season of Married At First Sight as it aired in the UK.
A source said Ella and Miles connected on Instagram back in May after he watched her on TV and “there’s been a lot of flirting”.
“Once Made In Chelsea producers found out and saw Ella was travelling around Europe, they invited her onto the show to explore their connection on-screen,” the source continued.
It appears Ella and Miles met for the first time last week after she landed in London.
Shortly after Ella shared a post saying she’d “woke up in London” whilst tagging herself in Kensington and Chelsea, Miles shared a picture at a restaurant in the same area.
In Miles’ picture, you could see the hands of the mystery woman he was dining with – and she had the same pastel pink nails as Ella had in her recent posts.
It seems Ella’s mum Belinda may already approve of her potential new man Miles, as she recently followed him on Instagram and has been ‘liking’ his posts.
Married At First Sight Australia airs on E4 in the UK, the same channel on which Made In Chelsea is broadcast, so Ella and Miles are both part of the same network family.
It was revealed Ella would be starring in the new season of Made In Chelsea after the show’s official Twitter account announced the news on Saturday.
There are already 23 seasons of the popular show, which follows men and women in their 20s who were born into wealthy families and live in the affluent area of Chelsea in London.
“The sun may have set on Mallorca but there’s a new ray of sunshine coming to Chelsea this autumn,” the tweet said.
“Ella May Ding, welcome to #MadeInChelsea.”
Fans were stunned by the news and were excited she would be joining the cast for the next season.
“We watched Ella Ding on Married At First Sight here in Australia. Can’t wait to see her shine and ruffle some feathers,” one commented on the tweet.
“This is actually amazing I will start watching now,” another said.
“Ella was a real gem on MAFS. I’m predicting Ella and Miles, and he’d be very lucky,” a third excited fan added.
