Married at First Sight Australia's Olivia Frazer has addressed revelations of cheating surrounding her boyfriend Jackson Lonie.
According to The Daily Mail, the couple were holidaying in Melbourne last weekend when they enjoyed a night out together, but when Olivia left early, Jackson allegedly continued the night with friends.
Video footage later emerged on social media of Lonie seemingly passionately kissing another woman.
Breaking her silence on Instagram Stories, Olivia addressed the situation with her followers, thanking them for their support.
"Thank you so much for the love and support during this horrendous time. I've seen so many beautiful messages and people checking in, and I just wanted to let you know that although I'm so heartbroken and embarrassed, I am okay. Your kindness means everything right now [heart icon]. I will be focusing on healing from this privately."
Earlier today the couple further spoke about the situation in a video uploaded to Instagram, in which Lonie said the recent pressures of fan backlash against the couple had got to him and he is now seeking help to find coping mechanisms.
"We're just taking a second to jump on here to address what happened last weekend. It's shit. I f**ked up," he said.
"A bit of background. All the negativity we've been getting from the show, the way I've kind of been dealing with it is to get blackout drunk, which don't get me wrong isn't an excuse and that's not acceptable. It's not the person I want to be and it's not who I am. I am seeking help to try to figure out new ways to combat my emotions and how to deal with this negativity. It has been shit but you know I've been very lucky to have Liv by my side and she's been nothing but an angel throughout it all."
Olivia then followed this by confirming that the couple planned to work through the situation together.
"We're hanging in there. We're staying together. We've got a lot of healing to do but ultimately we love each other. It's not worth throwing it away."
