MAFS AU "villains" are having to hide in safe houses after reunion episode airs

Warning: In this story there is a small spoiler for something that happens in the Married at First Sight Australia reunion episode.

Four Married at First Sight cast mates are reportedly in hiding amid serious fears for their safety after the series’ explosive reunion episode.

Ines Basic, Martha Kalifatidis, Jessika Power and Dan Webb have reportedly been forced to seek shelter at properties in rural Queensland in a bid to dodge backlash from the public.

The move follows the reality stars' controversial behaviour throughout the season - which was dominated by cheating scandals.

"This year the level of threats and hate has been unprecedented," an on-set source allegedly told the Daily Mail. 

"Although most of [the violent threats] have no credible basis and are just trolls on social media, producers are really worried the reunion may push some viewers over the edge.

"They are prepared right now for an intense public backlash against some of the participants."

Jessika's aunt Rebecca recently told the Daily Mail she had been fielding some of the abuse directed at her niece, who forced husband Mick to stay in the experiment for weeks so that she could pursue Dan, who was then married to Tamara.

"Jess is waking up every day to people telling her to kill herself and that she needs to die," she said in an interview.

"I'm copping threats too from local people, and so are the rest of the family."
