"Mitch did tell me and he told Brent [Vitielo], but the intentions behind it are all pretty grey to be honest."
Ella said she didn't confront Tamara about the text, adding: "Tamara and I didn't really talk to be honest. She did a few things in the experiment that didn't make it to air. She caused a bit of drama between Mitch and I."
The 27-year-old also shed light on a shocking incident that took place at the couples' retreat, which was left on the editing room floor.
"At the retreat, it was the final dinner get together and we were all having a drink and stuff and by the end of the evening she's like: 'Ella and Mitch you guys haven't had any drama this whole retreat, what about if I said that Mitchell grabbed my a-- in the pool today when you weren't around'," Ella said.
Ella said Mitch denied "grabbing Tamara's a--" but it may well be that the 29-year-old was trying to get a reaction.
Ella also admitted that it crossed her mind that Tamara may have stayed in the experiment for so long to potentially get closer to Mitch.
And it seems fans won't have to wait long for the rumoured scandal to be addressed.
The new teaser revealed that Brent will confront Tamara at the reunion dinner party, telling the table that she had texted Mitch during the period between the last commitment ceremony and the reunion.
"Tamara, you tried to pick up Mitch when we got out of the experiment," he yelled out across the table, with Tamara asking "I tried to pick up Mitch?"

"We saw the call logs and we saw the messages," he responded.
The shocking revelation comes after Ella told our sister site WHO that she had a bad "gut feeling" about Tamara from the very first night they met at the hen's party.
"They didn't show it, but from the start she said that if she wasn't happy with her husband she would go for someone else's," Ella tells us. "And that didn't get aired, so straight away I was like okay this woman's not here for the right reasons."
