Former Married At First Sight star Ines Basic has claimed some parts of her time on the show were faked.

The season six star appeared on the Unpopular podcast and claimed the infamous boat scene between her and her 'husband' Bronson Norrish was somewhat scripted.

The pair famously clashed on their honeymoon while out parasailing with viewers saying Ines was being especially cruel and unfair to Bronson.

In case you don't quite remember the scene, Ines wasn't feeling particularly comfortable with the idea of going parasailing and had made it clear.

Bronson jokingly asked their guide, "Any deaths due to parasailing?" To which Ines quickly responded, "Are you serious? What kind of f***ing question is that?"

The groom was seen losing his cool, telling his bride, "As a human, you are a horrible person."

"Shut the f**k up!" Ines replied, asking the guide to get her off the boat.

He once again told her she was a horrible person and she told him, "Shut the f**k up! When I say don't speak, shut the f**k up!"

"I can see why you're single," he told her.

Ines later explained on Talking Married, the show's spinoff, that she'd previously had a bad experience while parasailing, saying she was "in a state of panic", adding, "It was actually a cry for help."

Speaking on the podcast now, Ines said, "That boat scene, half of that was scripted by my producer."

"That was my producer, half of that was so fake!"

During their argument, Ines famously threatened to cut the cord on Bronson's parasail so he'd "sail away into the sky". Now, she's claimed that line was given to her by her producer.

She did, however, insist her meltdown was real due to that previous experience.

"I had a bad experience over in Mexico with a similar activity, so I already had anxiety about it," she explained.

"You know when you're so stressed out and you're literally having a panic attack? You can't talk to anyone, you don't want to be near anyone."

"But what you couldn't see on [Bronson's] end was him pushing me and pushing me, and they didn't air that, but on his end he's pushing my buttons and making it worse.

"And then I just snapped. So that part where I snapped and said 'shut up' that was real, but the rest, my producer was like 'amp it up!'"

Elsewhere in the chat, Ines claimed she was told she would be portrayed as the "funny girl" not the villain.

The reality star, who famously cheated on her partner with Elizabeth Sobinoff's 'husband' Sam Ball, also previously told the Private Parts podcast, "Some days I would just do what [producers] told me so they could just f**k off and I could go to bed."

Though, she did tell the Unpopular podcast that there were some authentic storylines on the show, including the affair.

However, she added that despite the editing making it seem like they did, they never actually slept together.

Previously, MAFS executive producer Tara McWilliams has told Stuff, the series is not scripted.

"I do believe that the biggest conception out there is that reality is contrived and some people think it's scripted," she said in 2017.

"Married at First Sight is the classic case of you watch it and you cannot believe this stuff has actually happened and you think this has to be the hand of the producer and it's not."

"That is the most rewarding thing about making this show is that it is like a gift from the TV gods with some of the stuff that happens."
