After being eliminated over what fans believed was an 'overdramatised' lie, Farmer Wants A Wife's Lucy Holland has finally broken her silence on the matter.

Lucy claimed she was "railroaded" by her fellow contestants after they "exaggerated" her story about receiving a goodnight kiss from farmer Andrew Guthrie.

"Having my integrity put in to question was horrible," she told the Daily Telegraph.

The scandal kicked off on Tuesday night when Lucy told the other women that Andrew had tried to kiss her, but she turned away, something he denied, claiming he just wanted to give her a peck on the cheek.

She also told the group that Andrew had told her she was a "front runner", however, he told the others that she had "completely misread what the situation was".

While Lucy doesn't believe he was completely responsible for sending her home based on untrue accounts he'd been told, she was upset by his reaction.

"It sucks that he called me a liar in front of the whole nation before coming to me first," she said.

However, Lucy explained that most of the pain comes from getting "so badly railroaded by my friends".

She also says she's still friends with the women on the show, including Rachael Smith, the frontrunner to win Andrew's heart.

Lucy's elimination was an emotional one with Andrew telling her the incident was "one of the worst times" of his life.

"I know deep down you’ve got a massive heart and you’re a really good chick," he told her.

"As much as it sucks, I can’t sit there and think what we would be if we weren’t in this situation because I can only go off what I can see."

Lucy admitted to the cameras that while it’s a shame the gossip lead to the end of their relationship, "everything happens for a reason".

"I am leaving the farm with a bit of heavy heart just because conversations could have been had and communication could have been much better," said Lucy. "Everything could have been very, very different."

Farmer Andrew was visibly upset watching her leave his farm.

"Saying goodbye to Lucy, as hard as it was, it had to be done," he admitted. "Maybe if we did meet in a different time and place things would be different."
