Married At First Sight Australia contestant Olivia Frazer has spoken out about rumours that the show is scripted, following speculation that some elements of the show could be staged.

The 28-year-old met her husband Jackson Lonie on season nine of the show, with the couple since confirming on Instagram that they'd had their "first off camera date". Cute!

Following the series finale, Olivia took to her Instagram Stories to answer a fan Q&A, including questions on whether dialogue was scripted on the show after some viewers suggested it sounded unnatural.

Olivia revealed more about how filming actually happens, telling followers, "You have to repeat back the questions that producers ask you, which is why it sometimes sounds scripted."

The contestant went on to explain that producers often "poke and prod" cast members to say things, adding that there isn't an actual "script".

Elsewhere in the Q&A, Olivia was asked, "Do you think you were edited in MAFS to only show an unpleasant side of yourself?" with the contestant responding, "100 per cent."

She went on, "I do absolutely take accountability for everything that I've said. I always have, I always did. You guys just never got to see it.

"Let's just say, I'm friends with most of the cast still. So there's no way if I was as awful as I look on TV that I would walk away with so many friends and the love of my life. Jackson wouldn't put up with that."

We're glad Olivia's set the record straight on that one.
