A former star on the reality show, Clare Verrall, also hit out at the couple following Jackson's announcement.

"I'm actually annoyed at myself for trying to give you and Olivia advice on dealing with the MAFS s**tstorm because I was honestly worried about both your mental health in the aftermath," she commented on Jackson's Instagram.

"You obviously both went onto it for very different reasons to me."

Fans were also sceptical about the timing of Jackson's big announcement.

"The stunt last week all makes sense now," one wrote.

"They staged their cheating scandal, then upped their numbers on Instagram, then did a hard launch of their OnlyFans. Was all calculated," another accused.

"This has got to be a JOKE right!!!!!!! Who in their right mind, would choose the week after hooking up with another girl, to announce an OF page!!!" a third added.

Jackson breaks silence after cheating scandal

His OnlyFans announcement came after Olivia and Jackson posted a video on Instagram addressing the cheating scandal.

Jackson said he "f***ed up" and had been getting blackout drunk.

“All the negativity we’ve been getting from the show, the way I’ve kind of been dealing with it is to get blackout drunk, which don’t get me wrong, isn’t an excuse and it’s not acceptable," he said.

Olivia kept her stony face blank as she listened to her boyfriend explain that the negativity and backlash has "been sh*t".

“I am seeking help to try and figure out new ways to combat my emotions and how to deal with this negativity," he added.
