MAFS stars set to hide in safe houses after the explosive finale airs

Married At First Sight EXCLUSIVE: Controversial stars including Jessika Power and Martha Kalifatidis will ‘go into HIDING in rural Queensland’ after the finale as Channel Nine prepares for ‘an intense public backlash’

Married At First Sight’s most controversial participants will be hiding in the outback in remote ‘safe houses’ after the explosive season finale airs next week. 

Jessika Power, Daniel Webb, Ines Basic, Martha Kalifatidis and others have been booked into rural rentals in Queensland for four days to ensure their physical safety.

Channel Nine and producers Endemol Shine Australia are hoping this move will protect them from the public backlash they will undoubtedly face.

A production source told Daily Mail Australia on Thursday: ‘This year the level of threats and hate has been unprecedented.

‘Although most of [the violent threats] have no credible basis and are just trolls on social media, producers are really worried the reunion may push some viewers over the edge.

‘They are prepared right now for an intense public backlash against some of the participants.’ 

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel Nine for comment.

Jessika Power, who was branded ‘Australia’s most hated woman’ after her affair with Daniel Webb, has been receiving death threats over the past few weeks. 

Her aunt Rebecca previously told Daily Mail Australia that their family is now living in fear of a physical attack. 

‘I know [the trolls] are mostly just keyboard warriors but they are just so hateful,’ Rebecca said. 

‘Jess is waking up every day to people telling her to kill herself and that she needs to die. I’m copping threats too from local people, and so are the rest of the family.

‘I am concerned, as her auntie, that someone really will hurt her. She was on the train yesterday and I felt sick. I have to work and can’t be with her every day.

‘I’m worried that people are going to act upon what they say.’

Meanwhile, controversial bride Ines Basic was the target of a sickening organised street attack back in February.

Daily Mail Australia revealed that thousands of people had clicked to attend a violent gathering in Melbourne, which was being promoted on Facebook.

The ‘event’ location was just minutes away from where Ines had actually been sighted around the time of the scheduled attack.
