SHE is set to be a late arrival on Celebs Go Dating as she looks for love after shooting to fame on Married At First Sight Australia.
But Jessika Power risks having her pay cut by reality TV bosses after her secret relationship with Connor Thompson was exposed.

It is understood that Jessika signed a contract worth approximately £40,000, with one clause stipulating she must be single throughout filming.
But the star has been leaving filming in London to travel back to Manchester to be with her other half – despite telling the agency she was single.
A show source told The Sun: “Jessika told bosses she was completely single when she signed the contract, insisting all rumours she was dating Connor were false and that she really wanted the agency’s help finding a British boyfriend.
“Instead, she told pals she only agreed to do the show as it was a huge opportunity that’d boost her name in the UK.
“She moved to England for Connor and never had any interest in the guys the agency had lined up for her.”
Throughout filming, Jessika and Connor stopped posting pictures together to keep their romance a secret and downplay the rumours.
She was said to be dating Towie star Pete Wicks after enjoying secret meet-ups.
But since the series started airing, Jessika has resumed sharing loved-up selfies with podcaster Connor almost daily, after recently spending Christmas with his family.
It’s understood no formal or legal action has yet been taken against the alleged contract breach, but Jessika has infuriated show bosses.
They must now decide whether to dock her pay as a consequence of being in a “secret” relationship.
The insider added: “Jessika breaching this clause has brought the whole premise of the show into question and bosses may have to make an example out of her and cut her fee.
“If they don’t, it sets a precedent and contestants on future seasons may do the same.
“The agents invest their time in the celebrities’ dating journey and expect them to take the process seriously.”
However, Jessika may not even notice if her wages are docked after recently boasting she made £158,000 in her first four months on adult subscription website OnlyFans.
“The amount of money I’ve earned is just ridiculous. I’ve only been on it since August,” she told Aussie radio station KIIS FM.
“The more money you get the more boring it gets, because then it’s like, you have to get a financial advisor, a really good tax agent.”
In December, the controversial reality star leaked her bank statements in a TikTok video – showing she splashes up to £56,000 (AUD $106,000) a month on designer clothes and supporting her siblings.
She caused trouble on MAFS Australia when she had an affair with another groom, Dan Webb.
He dumped her live on TV and the pair had a bitter war of words in the aftermath of their break-up.
