Who is Ella Morgan Clark?
Ella Morgan Clark is a 29-year-old clinic consultant from Weston-super-Mare.
She is Married At First Sight's first transgender bride and is appearing in season 7 of the hit E4 show.
Ella loves love and told Channel 4 she cannot wait to settle down with the right person.
"This experiment is so much more than just me getting married. I see this as a big deal for someone who has transitioned," she shared.

When it was first announced that Ella was part of the MAFS line-up there was some speculation among fans that her future groom might not find out about her transition until after they tied the knot.
This is because the whole point of MAFS is that you don’t know anything about your partner before you are married.
But Ella has put those theories to rest and confirmed that her husband was informed the day before their wedding.
Speaking to BBC’s Newsbeat, she explained: “Because it was the first time Channel 4 had ever done something like this, I agreed along with them that once they’d found me a match my husband was made aware that I was trans prior to the wedding.

“He was aware that I was trans and I had transitioned but he didn’t know anything else about me.”
A spokesperson for Channel 4 confirmed to Newsbeat that Ella’s groom was told “to ensure fully informed consent,” and he was happy to go ahead with the wedding.
They added: “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 a detailed assessment of individual preferences, as part of an in-depth, careful matchmaking process.”
Ella also revealed how her castmates were supportive of her, throughout the experiment.
She said: “I thought ‘Oh God, I hope they like me, I hope they see me as me.'
“As much as I’m so proud to say I’m a trans woman, I don’t always feel like I want to be seen as just that, there’s so much more to me.”
