MAFS' Ella Ding joins major reality show: 'This is amazing'

Ella Ding is one of the most popular contestants to come from season nine of Married at First Sight and now it has been revealed she will star in another major reality TV series.

Posting a photo on Twitter on Saturday, UK Channel E4 revealed she would be joining the cast of Made in Chelsea.

There are already 23 seasons of the popular show, which follows men and women in their 20s who were born into wealthy families and live in the affluent area of Chelsea in London.

The official Made in Chelsea Twitter account posted a photo of Ella at Chelsea Square wearing a green blazer and holding a fluro green bag.

She holds her finger to her lips in a hush gesture, but it appears the secret is well and truly out and it is believed she is currently in the UK to film the season.

"The sun may have set on Mallorca but there’s a new ray of sunshine coming to Chelsea this autumn," the tweet said.

"Ella May Ding, welcome to #MadeInChelsea."


Fans were stunned by the news and were excited she would be joining the cast for the next season.

"We watched Ella Ding on Married At First Sight here in Australia. Can't wait to see her shine and ruffle some feathers," one commented on the tweet.

"This is actually amazing I will start watching now," another said.

"Ella was a real gem on MAFS. I’m predicting Ella and Miles, and he’d be very lucky," a third excited fan added.

Since the season of MAFS wrapped, Ella has proved to be one of the show's most successful breakout stars.

In June she launched the Sit With Us podcast with MAFS co-star Domenica Calarco and boasts more than 600,000 followers on Instagram.

The podcast topped the charts when it was launched, and industry insiders said at the time it could lead to a national radio show.
