Ella Ding and Brent Vitiello of MAFS head to Cairns for a romantic getaway

Ella Ding and Brent Vitiello faced a lot of skepticism when they insisted they were “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 34-year-old hospitality manager heading off on a ‘romantic break’ together on Friday – courtesy of a Sydney Radio Show.

Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa arranged the Cairns outing, on the condition that they reveal on Monday’s show whether the romance blossomed on their first official date.

The rumored lovebirds chatted heartily as they approached their gate for the flight.

The holiday comes after Ding insisted she’s “just friends” with her co-star, despite the couple having a “slumber party” a few weeks ago.

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

Radio host Sarah McGilvray noted that their backgrounds on Zoom were “suspiciously similar” after they claimed to live in different states.

Ella had previously told Nova presenter Michael “Wippa” Wipfli that she lived “at home” in Melbourne, and Brent told Ryan “Fitzy” Fitzgerald that he lived in Bondi, Sydney.

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

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

It comes just weeks after Ella revealed she’d enjoyed a “slumber party” with Brent.

Ella said on the podcast The Handbags earlier this month, “We’re just friends. We even had a sleepover and nothing happened. Nothing.’

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

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

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

She added that “Brent actually sent me flowers on my birthday last week,” which was “very thoughtful.”

“He didn’t write his name on it, but I knew it was his,” she said.

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

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

Their marriage was already on shaky ground from the reunion, as Mitch had previously tried to end their last vows and told Ella he wasn’t ready to commit.

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

Meanwhile, there are now rumors that Ella and Brent’s former MAFS husbands are dating.

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