Married At First Sight star Olivia Frazer has set the record straight on longstanding rumours the Channel Nine reality show is scripted.

The teaching student, 28, said during an Instagram Q&A on Monday that while the show does sound ‘scripted’ at times, this isn’t because the stars are being fed lines.

She revealed the dialogue occasionally sounds unnatural because the participants are told to rephrase sentences to make them clearer.

For example, MAFS stars are frequently told to repeat a question a producer has asked them off camera before giving an answer.

‘You have to repeat back the questions that producers ask you, which is why it sometimes sounds scripted,’ Olivia explained.

She added that producers often ‘poke and prod’ during filming in order to get the contestants to say something, but there is never a physical ‘script’ on set. 

Elsewhere in her wide-ranging Q&A, Olivia admitted she had regrets about the show.

Despite having found ‘the love of [her] life’ in boyfriend Jackson Lonie, she said she ‘would not let my worst enemy go on Married At First Sight’.

Olivia cited an example of manipulative editing when she supposedly berated Jackson for going to the gym.

She said she wasn’t upset at Jackson, but was instead worried the producers were going to use the scene as an excuse to bring up the fact she used to be overweight. 

‘That never happened. I was salty about filming in a gym because I thought they were trying to take the p**s out of me being a former fat girl,’ she said.  

‘So that’s why I had the s**ts while we were filming in the gym.’

It comes after Olivia shared a post on Instagram last Wednesday about putting bitterness aside and moving on with her life. 

She posed with a cocktail in hand while enjoying an afternoon drink in a courtyard, and wrote: ‘Cheers to getting better and not staying bitter.’

Olivia also shared a video on her Stories of herself and Jackson smiling at a harbourside venue overlooking the city.

Confirming they are still together despite their sometimes rocky journey on MAFS, she captioned the clip: ‘Happy honeys @jacklonie1.’  

Olivia, from the Central Coast, was labelled public enemy No. 1 on this year’s season of MAFS after her feud with rival bride Domenica Calarco.

Domenica was given a sympathetic edit after being outed as an OnlyFans model by Olivia, who in turn was portrayed as mean-spirited and vindictive.

However, sources have confirmed to Daily Mail Australia this did not tell the full story.

Last week, one of the show’s participants broke ranks to reveal Domenica’s behaviour during filming was just as bad as Olivia’s.

Cody Bromley said the feud between the warring brides could ‘easily’ have been edited to make Domenica the villain, adding: ‘There were no heroes or villains.’

‘It’s a shame. The edit could have gone either way with the whole Domenica and Olivia thing,’ he said.

‘[The edit] could have easily made Dom look like the villain and Liv look like the hero, but it didn’t pan out like that.

‘It’s just a shame to see that there is that divide and a lot of people being nasty.’
