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 Morgan, 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 to be a secret after she previously told them she was trans.

However, on Tuesday, Marketing and Events Manager Nathanial Valentino, 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.

Last week, MailOnline told of how the reality series had sparked a ‘fakery’ row after pretending that Nathanial was not aware he was marrying a trans woman.

The broadcaster admitted that they had actually told the groom in advance of the TV ceremony despite him acting shocked at the revelation, which aired on Tuesday night’s episode.

Married At First Sight, which is aired on the broadcaster’s E4 streaming platform, sees contestants not know who they are marrying until they meet them at the altar.

But a Channel 4 spokesperson confirmed to the MailOnline that Nathanial ‘was told that the match found for him was a trans woman.’

In a statement issued, the network says: ‘This is the first time MAFS UK has featured a trans bride so, to ensure fully informed consent, and with the permission of the bride, the groom was told that the match found for him was a trans woman, after which both parties chose to continue in the process.

‘In all other ways, the integrity of the format was preserved. Our priority during matchmaking is to protect the wellbeing of the cast and create compatible matches, based on detailed assessment of individual preferences, as part of an in-depth, careful matchmaking process.’

Despite the programme being fake, Channel 4 bosses insist that ‘a high duty of care’ was put into their match.

While a preview of Wednesday’s episode appeared to show Ella and Nathanial falling out during a bitter argument, the moment of Ella’s coming out 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!!!!’

Another shared: ‘Nathaniel must be protected at all costs #mafsuk,’ while someone else posted: ‘Yes Nathanial… MY GUY!!!!’

Someone else tweeted: ‘I’ve cried twice in 20 minutes Ella and Nathaniel you got me.’

‘These 2 have me sobbing. I love them,’ commented another viewer, while someone else wrote: ‘Nathaniel is a King. Look at Ella’s smile.’

One other show fan posted: ‘Awwww love this for them awww Nath & Ella routing for you two.’

Referring to Nathanial’s response to Ella’s coming out, someone else wrote: ‘”As beautiful as you are, it isn’t about how you look. It’s about how you are inside and how you make me feel.” Wonderful words … but I also bet it’d be handy to look like Nathanial.’

Another person tweeted: ‘I will be ride or dying for these two for the next 2 months – if anything goes wrong, don’t speak to me.’

And one other viewer wrote: ‘Ella telling him and Nathaniel accepting is so lovely. High hopes for them.’

Ella, who lives with her nan, was delighted to be walking down the aisle, admitting she felt like the ‘Disney princess’ she’s always dreamed of being in her wedding dress.

She tearfully said as she stood in her wedding dress: ‘I cant believe I’m getting married as Ella, as me, if I could tell my six-year-old self I am going to be that Disney princess I always dreamt of being.’ 

She was matched with Nathanial by the experts, who said he was looking for an ‘open-minded’ partner and is pansexual himself.

Ella spoke of her heartbreaking previous experiences as she told how men she’d dated wanted to keep her gender identity a secret from their friends and families after finding out she was trans.

She explained: ‘Guys have rejected me on the whole trans issue. Once I told them about me they would continue dating me but wanted to keep it a secret and I don’t want to be someone’s dirty little secret – It’s why many trans people don’t get married because they don’t make it that far.

‘I just want someone to be proud of me and equally open-minded and accept my past its all I want.’

Nathanial said he simply wants to meet someone who ‘radiates love and kindness’ and he is attracted to what the person is like on the inside over anything else.

‘It’s been hard not having anyone else to rely on. It’s important to have stability and has wisdom – someone who has gone through stuff to connect with them, my ride and die,’ he said.

As they met for the first time, Ella said in a piece to camera: ‘He is so fit – he’s ticking all my boxes, amazing hair and amazing teeth.’
