A Channel 4 dating series is set to make ‘history’ on the show with a new exciting cast signing for the line-up, it’s been reported.

The celebrity that’s said to have joined the programme also has a connection to reality TV veteran Katie Price.

In 2023, Ella Morgan became the first transgender person to appear on Married At First Sight UK, beginning the process by tying the knot with Nathanial Valentino.

Their relationship didn’t end up lasting throughout the experiment, with Ella sparking up a romance with another contestant – Katie’s current boyfriend JJ Slater.

Ella and JJ left their respective partners on MAFS UK and subsequently coupled up with each other, but broke up during the grand finale.

Now, it appears that Ella is hoping she’ll find a new love on E4’s Celebs Go Dating.

‘Ella is telling friends she’s signed up for Celebs Go Dating this week – she’ll make show history as the first trans contestant and bosses were really keen to sign her,’ a source told The Sun.

‘She’s so honest, speaks from the heart and is truly looking for love.’

During a recent interview with the podcast Queer Love Stories, Ella spoke about her past relationship with JJ, stating that out of the men she had previously been romantically involved with, there were two who accepted her – and he was one of them.

She also claimed that she and Katie, 45, exchanged messages on social media ‘I assume before she got with JJ’, and while they spoke about the prospect of meeting up, that never happened.

‘So Katie had reached out to me, I assume before she got with JJ, and said, “You’re my favourite on MAFS, we need to meet up.” I said, “Yeah, yeah, yeah.” So we were messaging. Never met up. I’ve still never met her,’ she said, Digital Spy reported.

‘So we were going to meet up, whatever, sending a few messages, not many. Then obviously it all comes out about her and JJ, and I just thought, “Well, I’m not going to message back,” because I don’t want to mug myself off or look desperate.’

Ella added that she was ‘happy’ for JJ in his new relationship.

In addition to Ella reportedly signing up for Married At First Sight, former Love Island star Hannah Elizabeth, who recently starred on the all-stars spin-off, is supposedly being considered for the line-up.

‘Hannah Elizabeth has had a series of meetings about signing up for Celebs Go Dating,’ the source added to the publication.

‘Show bosses were really impressed with her on All Stars and think she would be perfect for the E4 show – she has a larger than life personality, is up for a laugh and she’s serious about finding someone.’

Metro.co.uk has contacted Channel 4, Ella Morgan’s and Katie Price’s representatives for comment.

Celebs Go Dating is available to watch on Channel 4.
