‘ He asked me ‘do you like it rough? I’m going to strangle you in the bedroom.’ It’s been made to look like he was the victim when he just didn’t find me attractive.

‘Matt made that up to deflect what he did in that restaurant, which was getting aggressive, throwing a chair back and storming out. Obviously it didn’t happen.

“I defended myself on more than one occasion and said that’s not fucking true, but it didn’t make the cut because the story was too good.

“I was told it wouldn’t make it into the final cut and I was upset when it did. E4 isn’t allowed to manipulate a story like that so I’ll take it further.”

“He told the security man ‘you’re a big guy, if I was looking for a fight I’d take you with me’, it was intimidating.” I found it quite scary at times.

“I told them that I did not feel safe and that they should have taken me out several times in that case. I felt very vulnerable as it was. The welfare was fantastic in the sense that they came to see you several times a day, which was great.

“However, it wasn’t enough considering the toxic environment we were in and I don’t handle it well.”

‘What stage will someone’s mental health get to before doing a TV show? I told my mom that I wanted to die. It was horrible. They cut words and made it look like she was jerking me off in a restaurant.

‘My mother told me to stay strong, but I said you would want to die if this was happening to you.’
