MAFS UK’s Chanita Stephenson celebrated turning 30 by throwing a huge party for her, her friends and plenty of her fellow reality stars.
The former social worker, who found fame after “marrying” account manager Jordan Emmett-Connelly on the Channel 4 show, took to her social media on her birthday to proclaim: “Flirty, thirty and thriving!
I didn’t quite know how to feel about turning 30… but here it is… and I’m here for it!!! On to the new exciting chapter of my life.”
Her on-screen beau commented on the post, writing in the comments, “great night, happy birthday again for yesterday chan!!”

Chanita says that while she wasn’t sure how she’d feel turning thirty, she was excited for a new chapter in her life
Chanita also posted a picture of she, Jordan and a friend hanging out after the party, captioned “the morning after” to her Instagram stories, so it seems her co-star was definitely in attendance for the big do.
The party took place in the four star Dixie Dean Hotel in Liverpool and was organised by Mojito Events.
Chanita only treated fans to glimpses of the action, sharing pictures of her dress – and custom, bejeweled hat – to her 193k Instagram followers, as well as a video of sparklers on top of champagne bottles.
Fans also got a glimpse of Chanita and friends letting their hair down in a reel which shows a group of them dancing, many with bare feet.
The 30 year old star also shared a snap of some custom decorated gold, cream and orange cupcakes embossed with her own name.

Chanita’s former beau’s attendance at the party will no doubt have intrigued fans, but the two say that they’re just friends.
Their breakup came as a shock to many of the show’s fans, as many thought that Jordan and Chanita were the most likely couple to do the distance.
However, Chanita revealed that Jordan dumped her over FaceTime leaving fans rooting for the pair devastated.

Chanita also explained in an interview with Heart Radio that she and Jordan secretly gave their romance “another chance” after the show but that it didn’t work out in the end, clarifying that they’re now “just friends”.
She also reassured listeners that the show is “very real,” and that she struggled to keep what she was up to from her loved ones.
Chanita added, “people question if your friends and family know, you make lies up about what you’re doing, so when there’s camera crew you say “I’m going on a dating show” but you don’t say what.”
