A TV source told the Daily Mail: "She didn't want to hurt Nathanial or go against the process because being part of the show means so much to her.
"Ella was looking for love and with the other groom, he adores her body and mind, and they had a much better chance of enjoying a long-lasting relationship together."
Since the reports surfaced, Ella has spoken out on Instagram, sharing a quote which read: "And in silence, we spoke a thousand words."

Breaking her silence, she wrote: "To clarify, I've never done TV before, I don't do everything for cameras, that's how I am with anyone and everyone. But I can 100% say- I am always myself and real and genuine, there's no act, that is just me.
"I am loud, crude, insecure, bash, swear, extraverted, over the top, that's just me. I may be fake on the outside but I'm real as hell on the inside."
Married At First Sight couple Nathanial and Ella argue on honeymoon
Prior to this, Nathanial hinted there was more drama to come as he claimed he "can't wait to tell the truth" about the show.
Following his honeymoon argument with Ella, 29, the former Geordie Shore star said on his stories: "I don’t usually talk to the camera, but unfortunately I won’t be watching MAFS tonight. But it’s on at 9.
"The big thing is, I’m coming back home and I can’t wait to tell the truth about all the s**t that happened on this show."
Nathanial, 36, also alluded to the drama earlier this month when he posted an image from the Married At First Sight launch event with the caption "L U K E 12:2-3".
The bible verse Luke 12:2-3 says: "There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known."
