A participant starring in Married at First Sight was too afraid to leave her own home after being bombarded by vicious online trolls.

Llanelli’s Shareen Geers, 48, had never met the man she was about to marry, but was paired with David from Solihull by dating experts on the Channel 4 show.

Shareen was one of 7,000 applicants who had applied to find her perfect match, and said she knew she’d be able to find the one.

The TV show saw Shareen and David tie the knot in the fifth season, who had agreed to marry each other, enjoy their honeymoon and live together at the beginning of lockdown.

Despite finding happiness with David, Shareen was a victim of vile online abuse, and admitted she was not prepared for it after the show had aired.

The mum-of-three was left scared to leave the house after receiving the abusive messages, and revealed the ones that hurt most were people calling her an “embarrassing mum”.

She told Wales Online : “The ones that really hurt the most were calling me an embarrassment as a mother and how ashamed my daughters must be to have me as a mum.

“Luckily I have given my daughters the tools to understand these comments are from strangers and to not take them to heart, but disregarding my sole purpose in life to be the best mum I can be broke me for a couple of days.”

She added: “After two days of crying I was actually feeling scared of leaving the house as I was concerned I would receive abuse whilst out running or shopping.”

Some of the disgusting hate included vile comments attacking her character.

On her Instagram, one wrote: “Why bother going on a show saying you’re open minded when you’re clearly not and then torture David for months. He’s better off without that horrible cow!!!!! And that’s being nice,” followed by a laughing emoji.

A second criticised: “Omg! think shereen is just after her 15 mins of fame! what is she doing there, David deserves so much better. #MarriedAtFirstSight.”

“Omg poor David, he is never gonna please her (I’m on ep 3) she does she want????” another commented.
