Ines appeared on the controversial dating experiment last year and ‘married’ Bronson Norrish. 

‘During filming my mental health was deteriorating,’ Ines told Hit Mid North Coast’s Krysti & Bodge.  

‘I was texting producers being like, “I’m not well, I want to be hospitalised.”

Ines – who was portrayed as the villain on the show – added: ‘I honestly was suicidal.’

‘I remember texting my producer and saying, “I honestly want to take my own life,” which is so sad.’

She added: ‘It was so bad.’

Ines said that during filming, she suffered bad bouts of psoriasis because she was so ‘stressed.’ 

Last month, Ines revealed that she had been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. 

She was portrayed as one of the villains on last year’s season, which resulted in plenty of backlash as the show aired. 

She told The Daily Telegraph: ‘I have experienced so much hatred, death threats, shame about migrating to Australia from another country, racism and more because of what MAFS chose to show of me.’

‘I wasn’t well during and after [the show], I think that was obvious, but it got even worse last July,’ she added.

‘That’s when it was the most brutal time for me and I was diagnosed with complex PTSD… It was 110 per cent caused from the show.’

Psychology Today describes PTSD as a mental health condition that can form in response to a traumatic event that happened recently or in the past.
