Back in 2017, Shay revealed to New Idea magazine that her late fiancé Tamim had drowned during a trip to Mammoth Lakes, California not long before she auditioned for Instant Hotels. 

‘I came to a point very early on in my fiance’s passing, where I had to sit down with myself and say: “Shay, either you stop living, because right now you’re not living. Either you jump in the grave with him, or you live.” So I auditioned for Instant Hotels,’ she told the publication at the time.

The former paramedic, who hailed from Sydney suburb West Pennant Hills, was cast on the show and appeared alongside her friend Mikey Gelo.

She also told the magazine that she’d dropped 10kgs during the grieving process, as she regularly forgot to eat.  

‘You remember to eat when you’re about to pass out,’ she explained.   

The death of her partner, who she had been dating since 2011, was the only tragedy the reality TV star had suffered.

Shay was also forced to come to grips with the deaths of two others who were close to her. 

‘My stepsister also passed away in the same year and one of my best friends committed suicide shortly after [Tamim’s death],’ Shay told New Idea magazine.   

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to Channel Seven for comment.
