Married At First Sight Australia Star Ines Bašić Says Bronson Norrish Wanted 'Open Relationship' In Cut Scene

Married At First Sight Australia star Ines Bašić has revealed that her ex Bronson Norrish told her he was "into open relationships" in a scene which was subsequently cut from the show.

Ines, who was very much the villain of her series, came under fire for cheating on Bronson with fellow contestant Sam Ball, and appearing not to give her husband Bronson a chance.

But she told the Mail there was more to the snub than meets the eye.

"I look so remorseless and like I don't care," she said. "But Bronson was into open relationships... and sharing women... They just didn't air that part. I was like that's such a crucial part to miss out.

"He was into open relationships and sharing women. I was so angry for so long because it was such a huge part to not air. I felt silenced. I really got the sh*t cut.

"I was like f*ck who did the edit on this? You went too hard."

While filming the show, Ines has previously revealed her mental health wasn't in a good place. Her weight dropped from 8stone 11lbs to an underweight 6st 6lbs and she's admitted she even contemplated suicide.

"I was suicidal. I was taking valium for my anxiety," she told The Sun. "I over-medicated before the reunion and shouldn't have drank. I don't even remember being there."

Her mental health issues were triggered for several reasons. For one, filming in the Gold Coast, she saw somebody take their own life from a balcony.

Plus, she was left heartbroken to discover that a close friend had died while in the middle of filming. Ines also had pre-existing PTSD and was dealing with the break-up of her parents, too.

"It was real hard. The whole thing... my weight loss was so severe," she added to the publication. "I was too scared, people were sending me rape and death threats every day.

"I was too stressed to eat and couldn't stomach anything while it was airing. Once it stopped airing I slowly started getting better."

Ines told the Mail that the bad edit led to a torrent of abuse when the show aired Down Under, and it's only got worse again since the show - filmed in 2018 - has landed on British TV screens.

She added, in her first UK interview, that people have messaged her threatening to "torture her mum" in recent weeks, and she's received death threats, too.

Whatever you think of Ines' actions on the show, we could all do with remembering she's human, too.
