Ella Morgan talks hitting it off with Celebs Go Dating co-star

Married at First Sight UK star Ella Morgan has revealed she formed a close friendship with her Celebs Go Dating co-star Stephen Webb.

The pair are among the new line-up set to face dating experts Paul C Brunson, Anna Williamson and Dr Tara for this year's edition of the reality show.

Ahead of the new series starting this summer, Ella took to her Instagram Story to open up about finding a "new BFF" in the former Gogglebox star — who recently announced his divorce from husband Daniel Lustig.

"Guys honestly it's the best and funnest experience I've ever done in my life so far. 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 said.

The reality star went on to jokingly compare their relationship to another pair of famous best friends, saying: "We just get on like a house on fire. We're the next Pete [Wicks] and Sam [Thompson]."

She added: "You're gonna have so much fun watching it. You're gonna get a lot more of Ella and see what me and the gang get up to. But thank you, I'm so excited."
