Ella Ding and Brent Vitiello have faced plenty of scepticism when insisting they’re ‘just friends’. 

But now the Married At First Sight stars are having their claims put to the test, with the 28-year-old beautician and the 34-year-old hospitality manager seen heading off on a ‘romantic holiday’ together on Friday – courtesy of a Sydney radio show.

Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa arranged the Cairns getaway, on the condition they reveal on Monday’s show if romance blossomed during their first official date.

The rumoured lovebirds chatted warmly as they approached their gate for the flight. 

The holiday comes after Ding insisted she is ‘just friends’ with her co-star, despite the pair having a ‘sleepover’ just weeks ago.

And the duo continued to fuel romance rumours on Thursday when they took part in a joint interview with Nova FM’s Fitzy and Wippa.

Radio presenter Sarah McGilvray noticed their backgrounds on Zoom were ‘suspiciously similar’ after they claimed to be living in different states.

Ella had earlier told Nova host Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli she was living ‘at home’ in Melbourne, and Brent told Ryan ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald he was based in Bondi, Sydney.

But Sarah was not convinced, and suggested they were actually in the same house during the Zoom interview because the rooms they were in looked nearly identical.  

The pair laughed nervously but didn’t deny Sarah’s theory, before Ella insisted to Wippa that she and Brent were ‘just friends right now’.

It comes just weeks after Ella revealed she had enjoyed a ‘sleepover’ with Brent. 

Speaking on The Handbags podcast earlier this month, Ella said: ‘We are just friends. We’ve even had a sleepover and nothing’s happened. Nothing.’

After host Michael Brunelli asked if the door was open for a relationship with Brent in the future, Ella responded: ‘It’s so hard for me to answer right now.

‘I think Brent is gorgeous. Totally attracted to him. But my headspace is like – I’m still healing, hurting, and thinking about [ex-‘husband’] Mitch [Eynaud] and Tamara [Djordjevic, Brent’s on-screen wife] still p***es me off.

‘I still feel like I don’t really know Brent. I think that we’re just spending good quality time together now.’

‘He didn’t write his name on it, but I knew it was from him,’ she said.

Ella had been ghosted by her on-screen husband Mitch Eynaud just days after they filmed the MAFS reunion dinner party in Sydney in January.

The financial planner, 27, reportedly broke things off because he was upset about her staging paparazzi photos with Brent.

Their marriage was already on shaky ground by the reunion as Mitch had earlier tried to end things at their final vows, telling Ella he wasn’t ready to commit.

But they reconciled when Ella flew to the Gold Coast for a ‘make-or-break’ holiday.

Meanwhile, Ella and Brent’s former MAFS spouses are now rumoured to be dating.

Mitch was spotted looking cosy with Tamara at a bar on the Gold Coast in February.
