Married at First Sight UK viewers were moved to tears during the second episode of the series as Ella came out as transgender after marrying her husband Nathanial.
Clinic Consultant Ella, 29, spoke of her crippling fear of rejection before walking down the aisle, recalling times men have turned her down or even wanted their relationship with her a secret after she previously told them she was trans.
However, on Tuesday, Marketing and Events Manager Nathanial, 36, delighted fans of the show as he accepted Ella for who she was without a second thought, before coming out to her as pansexual, insisting he falls in love with the person regardless of their gender.
The moment moved viewers to tears, with many taking to Twitter to express their joy at seeing Ella accepted by Nathanial.
One person wrote: ‘Good job experts. Looking forward to seeing Nathaniel and Ella grow!!!!’
