Married at First Sight star Nikita Jasmine has spoken candidly about her past experience in an abusive relationship.
Nikita opened up after she was asked to leave the show after getting into a shouting match with her co-stars at the show's first dinner party.
Security had to escort Nikita away from the scene and in the following episode’s commitment ceremony she was officially asked to leave the experiment.
As fans focused in on a moment from her honeymoon with former partner Ant Poole where she threw a paper cup at her now ex-husband, Nikita took issue with the accusation.
Writing in Grazia, she said: “I’m not defending my actions, but domestic violence is a big deal, and I don’t think it’s something you can compare to throwing a paper cup.”
She then explained she has suffered an abusive relationship that had fallen apart following the death of a family member.
She said: “I lost all my confidence towards the end of that relationship, I’d be so low I wouldn’t even bother to get changed or wash.”
Nikita’s family have also been receiving abuse from online trolls following her time on the show, and while she stressed that Channel 4’s aftercare had been “incredible” to her, she wanted the buck to stop with the trolls themselves.
She finished: “MAFS might be an entertaining reality show, which at times might seem far-fetched, but people need to remember that we’re all human, with feelings and families.”
While Nikita’s time on the show came to an end, her former husband Ant managed to remain in the cast list as Alexis and partner Jordan went their separate ways, leaving the door open for the flirty duo to ask for a repairing together.
The return of Alexis with Ant has set the table for an explosive argument between herself and Megan as Megan is teased to accuse Alexis of coming up with the idea to have her make a move on ex partner Jordan.
