MAFS' Ella spills on 'challenging' Made in Chelsea cameo: 'Hardest time'

Just over a week after it was announced that she would be making an appearance on Made In Chelsea while visiting London, Married At First Sight star Ella Ding has shared some details about the “challenging” experience.

The 28-year-old posted a number of Instagram Stories from the backseat of a car on Friday and revealed what it was really like filming the popular UK reality show.

“Well that’s a wrap,” she began. “Just finished some filming for Made In Chelsea.

“First of all, I do want to say a massive thanks to all the beautiful messages, the love and the support and the hype around it. It's so cool how excited so many of you guys are for me.

“But I will say, it's probably been the hardest time that I've been through since MAFS. In good and bad ways, but it's just been really testing and really challenging.”


Ella went on to tell her followers that she would be going “off the grid” for the next few days and stop using social media because it’s something she needs to do for her wellbeing.

“Especially travelling home, I just want to ground myself again, and yeah, reflection time guys,” she said. “Journal reflection time and yeah, so I'll be here but I won't be here.”

In the final post, she added: “See you in a few days.”

Bizarre twist in Ella and Miles’ romance

Ella’s post comes just a few days after she shared comments in a Facebook group suggesting that her romance with Miles Nazaire, who is her love interest on Made in Chelsea, may already be over.

“It’s just a short appearance guys,” Yahoo Lifestyle can reveal she wrote on Facebook earlier this week, despite telling fans on Instagram she “can't say” too much until the show has aired.

“Miles is kind and wonderful, we’ve had such a special time filming and getting to know each other. But [I’m] ready to get home [to Australia] and get back into a good space.”

Ella then hinted her connection with Miles, who Yahoo Lifestyle exclusively revealed she has been flirting with for months over Instagram, may be similar to her unsuccessful marriage to Mitch Eynaud on MAFS.

“Let’s just say it all feels very familiar to someone else I have opened up to,” she added.

The official Made in Chelsea Instagram account first announced Ella’s cameo last week after posting a gallery of snaps of the Australian star at Chelsea Square wearing a green blazer and holding a fluro green bag.

“The sun may have set on Mallorca but there’s a new ray of sunshine coming to Chelsea this autumn,” they wrote. “Ella May Ding, welcome to #MadeInChelsea.”
