The couple dramatically re-entered the E4 social experiment after sensationally leaving on Monday night's episode due to the fact their marriages with other co-stars ended. Ella, who became the show's first trans contestant, was originally paired with Nathanial Valentino while JJ and Bianca joined the experiment together at a later date.
Ella and JJ began flirting with one another and secretly started texting behind their partners back, and even met up in secret but insisted no cheating happened. Things came to a head when Nathanial exposed the relationship during a dinner party, but the pair have re-entered the experiment with their co-stars to progress after forming a connection.
Speaking on social media, JJ said that he'd been hit with a wave of hurtful and 'wrong' comments. He said: "Am I bi now? No! I see Ella as a girl. I don't know how many times I have to say that. The thing is everyone in the experiment saw Ella as a woman and a girl because that's what she is."
His co-star Luke Worley, who was asked to leave the show for allegedly fighting with Jordan, added: "Ella to me is a woman. I had never been around someone Trans so I had to personally be educated. I look at Trans people totally different now."
"I had to have this conversation with Ella because I needed to be educated as well. Speak to your friends about it in your group chat or privately not on a comment or a post. Speak about it privately if you want to have a rant."
"I think people forget, they think we're just characters, we aren't."
JJ also addressed 'cheating' on Bianca on the live stream as he said: "I didn't drag it out, I knew Bianca for 12 days. I feel like it was a lose lose for me."
"Trust me that dinner party were the toughest two days ever. I was a shell of myself, sat there with a face like, I didn't want anything to happen like that and I found it really difficult."
