Celebs Go Dating's Ella Morgan confirms filming break amid health struggle

Celebs Go Dating star Ella Morgan has confirmed she's been taking a break from filming as she recovers from illness.

The former Married At First Sight UK star is among the cast looking for love in the latest series of Celebs Go Dating, alongside the likes of Coronation Street star Helen Flanagan and Love Island's Chris Taylor.

After previously taking a break from Instagram after "never feeling so ill in all her life", Ella has returned to the platform to share photos of some get well gifts – and her hopes that she'll be able to return to set soon.

Sharing a picture of a colourful bouquet of flowers on her Instagram Stories containing a card from the Celebs Go Dating team, she wrote: "Thanks to the best team at Celebs Go Dating and my amazing CGD family!

"Means the world, can't wait to get back to work and back on set soon!"

Ella also shared a photo of a pink flower bouquet with a card bearing the words "get well soon", tagging two friends in the post and thanking them.

Ella confirmed she needs to prioritise her health at the moment in a previous Instagram post, writing: "Taking a short little insta break, I have never been so ill in all my life."

"I need rest then I'll be back with good content, hopefully if I make it!"

Ella will also be joined on the new edition of Celebs Go Dating by Gogglebox's Stephen Webb, Made in Chelsea's Tristan Phipps and musician and former Hollyoaks star Jamelia.

Sharing an update from filming in late May, she said that she'd already formed a strong friendship with Stephen.

"I love the cast, the crew are all amazing. I've got a new BFF for life, Mr Stephen, and we're gonna do loads more together," she added. "We just get on like a house on fire. We're the next Pete [Wicks] and Sam [Thompson]."

Sharing a further update in mid-June, Ella said that some experiences had also been challenging for her.

"Since MAFS, I've not really dated anyone. I really thought this was going to be an easy experience," she explained.

"We've only been filming a few weeks. Oh my god, it's amazing but it's really hard work."

Celebs Go Dating will return to E4 later this year.
