Married at First Sight star Nathanial Valentino has seemingly hit out at the show’s bosses as he took to social media to hint that it is protecting his wife Ella Morgan’s narrative.
The 36-year-old was paired with Ella, 29, this week. The pair hit it off on the day of their wedding and they both seemed overjoyed, but things took a dramatic turn on the couple’s honeymoon, with Nathanial accusing his new wife of ‘lying’ and being fake when the cameras were rolling.
As allegations claiming that Ella cheated on him with another groom on the show came to light, Nathaniel has called out the show’s bosses.
Posting a picture of an article about his wife’s alleged infidelity, he wrote in the caption: “About all the s**t that happened on this show," he captioned the post, adding: "Another cover up article. Come on @e4mafsuk you can do better than that."
Tyla has contacted E4 for comment.
Ella, the first transgender bride on the UK version of the series, tied the knot with Nathanial, who identifies as pansexual, after they were matched by experts Paul C. Brunson, Mel Schilling and Charlene Douglas.
The pair seemed to get off to a good start as Nathanial complimented Ella, while Ella said she was 'very lucky' to get the husband she had.
The series is still ongoing, with more couples being welcomed as they start their own journeys as husband and wife.
But as it turns out, it apparently wasn't long after Ella's head was allegedly turned by another man taking part on the show - a groom who is set to enter the experiment in an upcoming episode.
A source with knowledge of the alleged romances told MailOnline: "There's no denying that Ella and Nathanial were instantly attracted to each other the day of their wedding."
The source continued: "Ella's natural type is a straight man with masculine energy so one of the other grooms ticked more of her boxes. She didn't want to hurt Nathanial or go against the process because being part of the show means so much to her.
"Ella was looking for love and with the other groom, he adores her body and mind, and they had a much better chance of enjoying a long-lasting relationship together."
In response to the rumours, a Channel 4 spokesperson told MailOnline: "We don't comment on speculation. Viewers will have to tune in to find out what does or doesn't happen as the series develops – there's still 33 episodes to go."
Viewers saw the breakdown of Ella and Nathanial's relationship unfold during Wednesday night's episode (20 September), when scenes showed them getting into an argument as Nathanial accused his bride of playing up to the camera.
"You say s*** in front of these cameras that is different from what you say in front of me," Nathanial said. "I can't even say everything I know and why I act the way I am because I'm not allowed to say it.
"I respect you… and I wouldn't say s***… you are lying again and are lying in this whole thing."
Married At First Sight UK airs nightly on E4 at 9pm.
