Married At First Sight proves to be an emotional rollercoaster—and Ashley Irvine is really feeling the pressure.
Speaking with TV Week, Irvine says “I cried myself to sleep every night. At one point, I felt like the whole of Australia was against me and hated me – and that took a toll on me.”
Ashley also reveals she’s witnessed a lot of backlash outside the reality show.
“Troy and I don’t bring out the best in each other,” the 28-year-old explains. “I wasn’t expecting the backlash and how mean some people can be online.”
She adds, “It showed the worst side of me. You can’t trust your reactions.”
Irvine also admits she has a hard time watching the episodes on Channel Nine.
“I get anxiety before every episode,” Ashley says. “I never know if they’ll edit out most of what Troy has done and just make me look crazy.”
