Married at First Sight UK's Ella Morgan has dropped a mysterious message on her Instagram Story amid her appearance on Celebs Go Dating, while her former flame JJ Slater is all loved-up with Katie Price.

Ella, who's 29 and graced our screens on the E4 series last year, found herself in a romance with JJ, 31, after they both ditched their original matches from the show. Their love story didn't last, and JJ has since moved on with none other than glamour icon Katie, aged 46.

Now, Ella has posted a mysterious quote on social media about being a victim herself of 'bitterness' and 'insecurity'.

Just this month, whispers circulated that Ella shared a smooch with EastEnders' young star Bobby Brazier, 20, at a BAFTA TV Awards afterparty. Hot on the heels of that gossip, it's been revealed that Ella's on the hunt for new love on Celebs Go Dating, securing a spot in the upcoming season's cast.

With production reportedly in full swing, Ella took a moment during filming to post a thought-provoking quote on her Instagram Stories Sunday 26 May. The quote she reposted spoke about overcoming negativity from others.

It said: "Should you ever find yourself the victim of other people's bitterness, jealousy, lies and insecurities. Don't be mad."

And it went on to advise: "Remember things could be worse. You could be them."

Ella didn't just share the quote; she added her own two pence, urging her fans: "Don't be jel or bitter, be real, authentic, happy and nice to everybody you meet on the way, and be the star of your own story and everything you do."

The reality TV star and JJ Slater, who both appeared on the eighth series of Married At First Sight UK, have been causing quite a stir since their time on the show. Initially, she was matched with Nathanial Valentino, 36, while JJ was paired with Bianca Petronzi, 29.

Despite neither couple staying together post-show, Ella and JJ sparked up a romance, even returning to the programme as an item before eventually calling it quits.

Earlier this year, buzz started around JJ's new love interest, none other than Katie Price. Celebrating her birthday, JJ didn't hold back on social media, openly declaring his affection for Katie.

However, when word got out about JJ and Katie's budding relationship, rumours swirled that Ella was less than pleased, feeling a sting of betrayal from Katie, whom she considered a friend.

But Ella set the record straight in a chat with the Mirror, saying, "To be fair, Katie has reached out to me. [...] I mean, me and her are good, like I've got no problems with her and I've always been a fan of hers."

She went on to say that she hopes Katie and JJ will find happiness together, stating: "I want the best for them. I hope whatever happens, you know, [it] works out for them."

Wrapping up her comment, Ella added: "And I wish them the best."
