It's been the most explosive season of My Kitchen Rules we've ever seen after Sonya and Hadil were booted off the series due to excessive attacks on sister's Jess and Emma.

Now contestant Jess has opened up about how the backlash left her feeling "suicidal" due to the negative reaction to the biggest catfight in MKR history.

"I was getting death threats, and to this day we are copping it from fans," she told New Idea.

"I had the worst depression," she confessed, adding she's been having therapy because of the criticism and nearly "lost my job and I was suicidal."

However since the show has finished filming it seems Hadil feels the same way and sorry for her actions.

"We wouldn't wish what we went through on our worst enemies," Jess told the outlet. "Hadil isn't in a good way herself, and is very sorry and regretful."
