Celebs Go Dating's Ella Morgan nearly quit during filming

Celebs Go Dating star Ella Morgan has revealed she almost quit the show as the experience has been "triggering".

Ella continues to make history following her time on MAFS UK, as she's set to be the first trans celebrity contestant on Celebs Go Dating. However, she admitted that being on the show has been challenging and she almost withdrew during filming.

"I nearly quit [Celebs Go Dating] the other day because it was just getting so much. It was quite triggering. I don't know what I expected going into this," Ella said in a series of video on Instagram.

"It's been a really weird week," she added.

Ella decided to stay on the show, voicing the complex feelings behind her stint on Celebs Go Dating, her first TV gig post-MAFS.

"Since MAFS, I've not really dated anyone. I really thought this was going to be an easy experience," she said.

"We've only been filming a few weeks. Oh my god, it's amazing but it's really hard work."

She added: "It all stems back to certain things and obviously my transition is a big part of it, but I don't just want my therapist to talk about my transition. I want to talk about life."

Ella has previously opened up on her appearance on Celebs Go Dating, sharing she's found a friend in former Gogglebox star Stephen Webb.

"I've got a new BFF for life, Mr Stephen, and we're gonna do loads more together," she said.
