A TV source said: "Ella and Nathanial tried to take their relationship to the next level but agreed they were better off as friends.
"Nathanial was so disappointed by Ella's actions, he thought they had a mutual respect for each other and kissing someone else in the process went against his values.
"Ella loved the attention she received from JJ because it's what she missed in her marriage to Nathanial.
"After initially leaving the show when their marriages failed, Ella and JJ were given permission by the relationship experts to come back, which certainly ruffled feathers among the cast who have taken the process seriously from the beginning."
This comes after a teaser clip from the upcoming episode of Married At First Sight showed a spark forming between Ella and JJ during a day away.
