‘I’m not even afraid that they’re gonna bite me. It’s not that. It’s the image of them. And it’s of even a photo of them,’ she said.
‘And I wanted to try and come here and see how long… how well I would go. And then today, with Pettifleur, I have been losing my mind all day.
‘I feel like s**t, doing this. But I… I, um, I have to go, unfortunately.’
As she farewelled her campmates, Mel maintained her sense of humour by saying: ‘I know I’m gonna regret it… But I can always go on Bachelor in Paradise.’
