Married At First Sight’s Olivia Frazer has opened up about her sexuality in a candid Instagram Live after previously revealing that she identifies as pansexual.

The TV star, who recently joined the adult subscription-based website OnlyFans, told her followers on Tuesday morning that she “didn’t even realise” she was ‘coming out’ when she mentioned it in a Q&A last week.

“I thought it was like, not a big deal, which it shouldn't be,” she said. “I don't like all the labels and crap, you should just be free to chill however you want.”

Pansexuality is the romantic, emotional or sexual attraction towards people regardless of their sex or gender identity.

Olivia went on to tell her followers that she sees pansexuality as “a gift” because it’s “the ability to love anyone”.

“So I haven't dated women before. I've had crushes and things like that, and there have been girls and non-binary people that I've been like, ‘Oh!’,” she explained.

“I go for the connection, not the gender, not the look. I have the ability to love anybody, but it just so happens that most of my connections - and I've not had that many relationships - have been with men.

“But that doesn't mean that I haven't had strong feelings for women and things like that. I don't need to explain myself.”

‘A bit of a shock’

After one follower left a comment suggesting that she “only came out for more clout”, Olivia was quick to clap back.

“Do you say that to everybody in the LGBTQI+ community?” she asked.

The MAFS star previously spoke about identifying as pansexual in an Instagram Q&A last week after a follower asked: “What’s your sexuality?”

“I’ve never spoken about this publicly before, but I identify as pansexual,” she responded.

“It’s not about looks, gender, anything, it’s just the person’s soul, their personality. That might be a bit of a shock to people because I don’t really talk about it.”

‘I am seeking help’

Olivia’s comments come shortly after her partner Jackson Lonie was filmed kissing another woman at a nightclub in Melbourne.

He had travelled to the city with Olivia, but she was not believed to be at the club when the drunken pash occurred.

The couple spoke out about the scandal last week in a joint video statement, with Jackson admitting that he “f**ked up”.

“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.

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

He then praised his girlfriend by saying he was really happy to have her “by his side”, adding that she’s been an “angel” through the whole situation.
