MKR stars Sonya and Hadil delete their joint Instagram account and set up separate interviews

They were booted from My Kitchen Rules after ‘bullying’ their fellow contestants.

And reality stars Sonya Mefaddi and Hadil Faiza’s relationship appears to be suffering from the controversy.

The best friends announced on Monday their joint Instagram account will soon be shut down, in addition to recently undertaking individual press interviews.

In a video clip posted to their Instagram Stories, the duo announced: ‘This account will be shut down shortly’ and instructed fans to follow their solo profile pages.

The footage was taken from the cooking show and featured them saying: ‘We need to bring Middle Eastern food to MKR, because it hasn’t had the exposure it should.’

The joint social media account, which was created when the friends made their debut this season, has almost 12,000 followers.

Hadil’s new personal account appears to be a recent one only created in the past week, with three uploads and just over 1000 followers. 

Sonya has over 17,000 followers and aside from an apology to MKR viewers posted on Sunday, there is no reference to her time on the show nor any photos with Hadil.

During a solo interview with The Kyle & Jackie O Show on Monday, Sonya appeared to distance herself from the scandal that saw her and Hadil kicked off the show.

Asked who was involved in a physical exchange that wasn’t aired and later confirmed by Channel Seven, Sonya replied Hadil was ‘the one to answer’ that question.

‘Look, I think Hadil’s the one to answer that,’ she said, before adding: ‘I can tell you that I was not physical.’ 

Their rival contestants Jess and Emma, also speaking to Kyle and Jackie O, backed Seven’s statement there was a physical incident but declined to provide details.

Hadil will evidently have time to speak out about her experiences during an individual interview with A Current Affair, scheduled for Monday evening.
