MAFS' Ella celebrates with Brent in risque, hip-high split dress

They’re the couple everyone wants to see get together, and despite firmly and repeatedly telling the public that they aren’t an item, photos like this one from the weekend are keeping fans’ hopes alive.

Married at First Sight stars Brent Vitiello and Ella Ding looked like a match made in heaven when they posed together at a joint birthday party in Sydney.

The celebrations were in honour of Brent, Ella and fellow MAFS star Jack’s birthdays and saw a whole host of the show’s stars, including Domenica Calarco and Selina Chhaur, catch up for a mini reunion at Eros Sydney.

Ella, 28, brought plenty of glamour in a slinky white dress with a very risque, hip-high split that would’ve made wearing knickers a little tricky.

Meanwhile Brent, 34, was dressed a little more casually in black jeans and an oversized long-sleeve top.


Photos from the party were shared on the Married at First Sight Australian Fans Facebook page where everyone gushed over how great Ella and Brent look together.

“Please let them end up together!!!! Delightful souls,” one person wrote, while another said, “They’d make a great couple!”

“They do look beautiful together,” and “They would have some really cute babies,” commented others.

Interestingly, Brent’s parents Lana and Rino, and Ella’s mum Belinda, were also at the party and got to meet each other for the first time.

MAFS' Brent and Ella dating rumours

The pair have been fending off dating rumours since it came to light that their respective partners on the show, Mitch Eynaud and Tamara Djordjevic are now together.

Fan faves Ella and Brent have been spotted out and about together in Sydney on a number of occasions and pressed in multiple interviews about whether they were interested in dating, but while Ella has admitted that she feels she would have been better matched with Brent over Mitch, she maintained that she’s still healing from her recent breakup.

An insider recently told Yahoo Lifestyle that there could be more behind the pair’s reluctance to date, saying, “Brent is planning on spending some time in America soon and exploring possible work opportunities there.”

“Now their season [of MAFS] is airing in the States, he's slowly gaining an American following and has connections in LA and NYC he is planning on meeting with,” they said, “He is also planning on doing a tour across the UK with Al [Perkins] as the pair have started receiving offers for club appearances.”
