This year's series of Married At First Sight UK might have drawn to a close last week after 36 largely chaotic episodes, but the drama doesn't look to be over yet.

During the grand reunion finale - which aired last Wednesday - we endured crippling awkward conversations between estranged couple Porscha and Terrence, and witnessed Erica confront Jordan over cheating allegations,.

Viewers also (finally!) found out what came of latecomers Matt and Adrienne’s marriage, and tried to guess whether Luke and Jay had opted to make a go of it in the end.

But it looks as though the real fall-out from the tear-jerking, head-spinning, loved-up 2023 MAFS series actually occurred AFTER filming.

Among the seemingly hundreds of bombshells that have been dropped over the last week, is the news that something intimate actually DID go down between Ella Morgan and JJ Slater, despite the duo denying sexual relations.

Fashion business owner JJ, 30, was initially paired up with 'wife' Bianca Petronzi, 30, on the show.

But as tensions began to soar between mismatched couple Ella and Nathanial, she began to sense a spark with cast mate JJ.

Ella and Nathanial left the experiment after finding their rocky romance too difficult to endure, and after JJ and Bianca called it quits, Ella and JJ returned to the show as a brand new couple.

Despite their relationship appearing to go from strength to strength on the show, Ella - who made history as MAFS' first ever transgender bride - and JJ went their separate ways during the final commitment ceremony.

And now, a whole week after the explosive reunion aired on E4, JJ has revealed that during the 'homestay' week, he and ex-beau Ella DID, in fact, sleep together, despite having previously denied that their relationship went that far.

Speaking to the MailOnline this week, JJ - who said he'd conferred with Ella before spilling the beans on their sex life - explained he wanted to lay rumours to rest.

"We don't want anything that's not true to be out there so now I feel the need to put the record straight," he told the publication.

"We did take our relationship to the next level. It was during my homestay... the pressure was off a little bit because we were outside of the bubble and there wasn't anyone else around us with their opinions."

The reality star added that Ella believed it was 'right' for the duo to consummate their relationship.

"We had a bit of time away and it was a reassuring time in our relationship," he said, adding that the pair 'felt natural and right'.

JJ also claimed they didn't 'rush' into taking the big step together, and praised Ella for being 'very open with her transition'.

He added that Ella 'shares the same genitalia as any other woman I have been with,' saying: "I don't see it as a big thing, Ella is like any other woman I have ever been with, and I see Ella as a woman."
