Apparently, a bride left her boyfriend to go on MAFS, and you’ll be shocked by who it is

"She said it on camera, but they never showed it"

It’s a tale (almost) as old as time, a MAFS participant breaks up with their significant other to go on the show and bag themselves a bunch of Instagram followers.

While we’ve already heard it go down with Jack Dunkley, there’s apparently a bride who broke up with their partner in pursuit of a place on the hit reality show.

According to So Dramatic, Ellie Dix dumped her boyfriend of four months for MAFS, and she apparently openly admitted it during filming.

“Ellie was dating a guy for about four months before MAFS and broke up with him to go on the show,” a source told the publication.

“She openly admitted this to Ben [Walters]on their honeymoon during the Confessions Box challenge. She said it on camera, but they never showed it.”

Multiple former MAFS contestants backed the insider’s claims.

“It’s funny that Ben copped so much s**t from Ellie’s cousin for being fame-hungry when that’s exactly why she went on the show,” one anonymous cast member told the title.

“Ellie openly said before going on the show that she was going on because she wanted fame,” a second said. “She wants to go out and do her own cosmetics business.”

In one of the most shocking leaks so far, photos were published of Ellie and Jonothan McCullough, who’s partnered with Lauren Dunn, looking very cosy.

The first set of leaked pics showed Jonathan at Ellie’s Christmas work party, which would have taken place a few months after the season officially finished filming.

A second set of photos was also published by Daily Mail Australia that show Ellie and Jonathan full-on macking on in the ocean at Sydney’s Tamarama Beach.
