Ella opened up to her co-stars during the first dinner party, telling them in a beautiful and emotional speech: "When I was born, I appeared very different to how I do today. My mum gave birth to four boys, three brothers, and then me.
"My mom asked me when I was younger if I was gay, and I said, 'No Mom, I am a woman.' She said, 'You want to be a girl?' I said, 'No. I am a girl.'
"I've never questioned who I am. I've always known I'm Ella inside. We all have struggles in life. Most people just never have to question their identity or their gender. I don't expect you guys to understand or get me. All I ask is that you respect me and treat me as the person I am. I'm not ashamed to stand here as an openly transgender woman, where there's so much negative stigma about trans people."

She went on: "Now that my outside – and it's a very sexy outside – matches my inside, I stand in front of you all as an openly trans woman, but more importantly, I stand here is Ella and all I want to do is be seen and treated as the girl that I am, finally."

What Ella's said about being the first transgender woman on Married At First Sight
Ahead of Married At First Sight airing, Ella spoke openly about her experience being the first transgender person to take part in the show.
Speaking at the official launch of the series, she told us: "I feel like I'm naturally going to get judged, and I have already online because of my label of being trans, but I'm really proud - there was a time I wasn't proud to talk about it - so the fact that I am making history as the first trans person, I am proud of myself."
Ella went on to explain: "I also feel like there's a lot of pressure representing a whole community who don't get representation in the media, and if they do a lot of the time it is negative.
"So, not only do I have to be myself, but I am also thinking in the back of my head 'can I say that? Can I do that?' and are people going to judge me for that?"
She added that she has had a lot of support her fellow brides and the grooms, however, during filming of the show.
Has Ella left Married At First Sight?
Ella left the experiment after it was revealed by her husband Nathanial that she had been texting and spending time with Bianca's husband JJ.
Nathanial decided to leave the show after the dramatic dinner party and did not attend the commitment ceremony. Ella did attend, however, where she was grilled by Bianca over her behaviour.
While sad to leave, she expressed excitement in getting to know JJ outside of the experiment after he and Bianca both chose to leave.
