Married At First Sight star Ella Ding reveals why she ‘ended things up’ with her new boyfriend: ‘I freaked out’
Married At First Sight star Ella Ding has shared intimate details about her relationship with her new boyfriend Guy Palermo.
During an Instagram Q&A on Sunday, the reality star, 29, revealed that she actually dated her husband, who she nicknamed Normi, six years ago.
Ella explained that she ended their relationship at the time because she was “freaked out” by a romantic gesture.
“Normi and I have known each other for about six years now. We’ve been friends for a long time and we’ve dated sometimes… but the timing was never right,” she said.
Ella recalled, “There was a time when he organized picnic dates in the back of his car. He picked me up from work and he had Thai food.’

“He had set up a picnic in the back of his car with a flashlight, pillows, an esky, wine and it was so thoughtful, but I’m pretty sure I ended it with him after that because I freaked out.”
She revealed earlier this year that she reconnected with Guy at the Beyond The Valley Festival.
“I saw him on New Year’s Eve at Beyond The Valley and we had the best time together,” she said.
“He’s been really trying to chase me for a long time and he’s just the best.”
It comes a week after the raven-haired beauty went Instagram official with her hunky lover by posting a photo of them posing in front of a storm outside a Melbourne restaurant.
Ella shared a gallery of snaps of the various dishes they ate at the Italian restaurant, with the couple’s beloved photo at the end.
‘Wonderful dinner. You want to see the last photo,” she wrote alongside the snaps.
It wasn’t long before Ella’s MAFS friends were congratulating her on the milestone.
“Nice, happy for you,” Ella’s former co-star Kate Laidlaw gushed as Jack Millar wrote, “WOOOOOOOOO.”

A source told Daily Mail Australia that Ella has known her mysterious new man for several years and he likes to keep his personal life a secret.
“Her boyfriend is very low-key, nobody knows who he is. They have known each other for six years and he has been pursuing her all this time. Love was right in front of them the whole time,” they said.
Ella had previously posted a fond photo of her and Guy celebrating her birthday, but she didn’t say they were an item in the post.
