She is one of Married At First Sight’s most outspoken brides.
But behind closed doors, Ines Basic has been struggling with a secret health battle.
The former legal assistant, 30, revealed on Thursday she was suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
She shared a photo to Instagram of herself lying on a coach and wrote: ‘Anyone else have cysts on their ovaries?’
‘Pretty sure I got one bursting right now. Need an ambulance,’ she added.
In September last year, Ines revealed she had also been diagnosed with scoliosis, which left her unable to exercise.
‘I just found out that I’ve got scoliosis and I’ve got some damage to my nerves,’ she explained.
‘I’m doing spinal recovery treatment, five weeks to go before I can do any form of workout,’ she added.
Ines, who is a Bosnian refugee, also disclosed she was in trauma therapy.
‘I always keep it to myself, no one ever sees the work that I put in,’ she said.
‘If I started showing people it would just look outrageous. People think I’m demonic or something.’
Ines was branded a ‘villain’ during the 2019 season of Married At First Sight for her affair with Sam Ball, who was partnered with fan favourite Elizabeth Sobinoff.
She was axed from Dancing On Ice at the weekend after her first ever skating duet with Łukasz Różycki.
And Myleene Klass treated herself to a well-earned 'burrito in the bath' in a fun snap posted to her Instagram page on Monday.
The presenter, 42, kicked back with her takeaway in the tub while soaking her muscles, as she reflected on no longer having to put in hours on the ice for the ITV reality show.
Myleene used a bath tray to hold her takeaway order as she enjoyed a moments piece after her whirlwind skating journey.
In a lengthy caption, Myleene wrote: 'Resting my bones on Doctors orders... with a Burrito in the Bath!!!
First day not on the ice in..forever. I wanted to thank the @dancingonice cast and crew.
'The people who keep the show going at 2m’s apart, the ice rinks for trying so hard to give us ice time, the pros for their support, drive and the privilege of letting us share their world, the fearless and fun celeb skaters, many of us juggling mums, my mgt, friends, my family and my ice partner, @icelukasz.
'The sacrifices made, people living apart from their loved ones, the virtual hugging and support every time one of us hit the ice, the online distanced physio sessions, first aiders by our sides, the catering at a distance, the sanitised mic packs left on the side of the rinks, the labelling of everything, glam teams in bubbles, backstage mapped out like a military map, the judges and hosts zigzagging their way to us, even an actual 2m stick to ensure we danced at a distance!
'The miracle isn’t what’s happening on the ice but actually off it!
'I have a new found respect for all ice dancers and choreographers. It’s infinitely hard yet infinitely fun. A special thank you to MY team in production getting me to where I need to be, always! Will be cheering you all on till the end, cast and crew and again, thank you. x'
Myleene was the first contestant to leave Dancing on Ice.
The Hear'Say singer and her professional dancing partner Lukasz exited the ITV show after losing in the skate off to Lady Leshurr and Brendyn Hatfield.
Speaking to hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, Myleene said: 'I couldn't have done it without Lukasz and my family.
'I've never skated before so this is a skill I've learned in lockdown. When the rinks are back open, I will be there. To all the team here, it's not been an easy production in lockdown so I feel really chuffed. I'm really happy.
Myleene found herself in the skate off against Lady Leshurr but the four judges - Ashley Banjo, John Barrowman, Christopher Dean and Jayne Torvill - decided to send Myleene home.
Ashley said: 'The first skate off is never easy but I wanted to say, massive respect to both of you because I thought you both did amazing in the skate off. I'm going to go with who I think is the strongest skater and who had the better skate off performance. I'm saving Lady Leshurr.'
Whilst Christopher added: 'The whole evening has been about the skating versus the performance. You both did great performances tonight but the best skaters were Lady Leshurr.'
Elsewhere, Sonny Jay was thrilled when he and professional Angela Egan got this week's Golden Ticket, giving them a sure pass into next weekend's Musicals week on the show.
Asked how he felt, he said: 'Honestly I wasn't expecting it. Thank you so much. I'm so chuffed with this and I'm going to come back for musicals' week because I've got a banging number.;
Meanwhile, Faye Brookes and her professional partner Hamish Gaman wowed with their skating, earning them a huge 31.5 points and putting them top of the leaderboard.
Dancing On Ice returns to ITV next Sunday.
Lingering at coastal tourist 'hotspots' is putting injured whale sharks at a greater risk of boat strikes, a study of the larger, slow-moving filter-feeders has found.
Researchers from York and the Maldives warned that wounded sharks stay in certain, favourable locations for three times longer than their uninjured counterparts.
This means they not only miss out on seasonal food sources in other areas, but that they also put themselves at greater risk of further injury as a result of human activity.
The study is a follow-up to the team's 2018 findings that sharks favour locations with warm, shallow water in close proximity to a sharp sea-floor drop into deep water.
This explained why whale sharks gather en masse at only some 20 locations around the world — including off the coasts of Australia, Belize, the Maldives and Mexico.
However, although great locations for the sharks to recuperate, these areas tend to be popular tourist destinations at the same time.
Sharks swimming in such shallow waters are at risk from being struck by both large vessels and tourist boats — result in either injury or death.
Based on their new findings, the researchers are now calling for greater management in these coastal locations to protect these endangered species.

'Since investigating why whale sharks only gather at a few sites, we have found that loyalty to these areas seems to be high even in injured sharks,' said paper author and marine ecologist Bryce Stewart of the University of York.
This, he added, is even 'despite the risk of re-injury from boating activity.'
'The impact of injury on where and how long these creatures stay in one spot was not fully understood, however, so we needed to investigate how behaviour differed between injured and non-injured whale sharks.'
Data on whale shark observations between 2006–2018 — taken by the Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme — revealed that around 80 per cent of sharks assessed for injury at the South Ari Atoll gathering site had at least one wound.
The team found that both injured and non-injured whale sharks would spend time residing in the area — but that injured sharks would spend, on average, three times longer at the site and less than half as much time away from the location.
'These sites provide the ideal environment for whale sharks to search for food in both deep water and warm shallows, as well as bask in the surface water to warm up their large bodies,' said paper author Harriet Allen.
'Unfortunately, they also pose a huge risk because of the human activity in the area, which means that almost all of the resident whale sharks are injured at some point in heir lives,' the University of York marine biologist added.
'Our new data suggests that the injured sharks remain longer in these areas potentially because they provide the resources the sharks need in order to recover — the benefit gained from this area is greater than the risk of staying.'
'However, we now need to establish whether injury causes the longer residency or whether it is more a case that the more faithful the whale shark is to the area, the more likely they are to get injured.'
'More work is needed on the aspect of "loyalty" that these fascinating creatures seem to have to these select areas.'
'Much of the tourism to [the Maldives] has been severely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, said Maldives Whale Shark Research Programme's managing director, Richard Rees.
'Whilst this has been a big challenge for local business, it is also the ideal opportunity to take a pause and examine what is important for the sites.'
Going forward, he explained, this will 'allow businesses to get back on their feet and the unique wildlife to thrive at the same time.'
'This new research demonstrates the urgent need for effective enforcement of and compliance with an area management process that allows the continued survival of these magnificent creatures.'
The full findings of the study were published in the journal Aquatic Conservation: Marine and Freshwater Ecosystems.
It's something that's drilled into us from a young age, and now a new study has reaffirmed just how important it is to get a good night's sleep.
Researchers found that getting a good night's sleep - defined by the NHS as six to nine hours - 'clears the mind' by removing potentially dangerous toxins from the brain.
This includes toxic proteins that may lead to neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's, indicating that deep sleep could be key to maintaining brain health.
In the study, researchers from Northwestern University in Chicago examined fruit flies' brain activity and behaviour.
While the insects may seem very different to humans, the neurons that govern flies' sleep-wake cycles are surprisingly similar to our own.
For this reason, fruit flies are often used as model organisms for sleep and neurodegenerative diseases.
In the study, the team examined proboscis extension sleep - a deep sleep stage in fruit flies that's similar to deep sleep in humans.
During this stage, the researchers found that the fruit flies repeatedly extended and retracted their proboscis (snout) in a pumping motion.
Dr Ravi Allada, senior author of the study, explained: 'This pumping motion moves fluids possibly to the fly version of the kidneys.
'Our study shows that this facilitates waste clearance and aids in injury recovery.'
The team then impaired the flies' deep sleep, and found that the insects were less able to clear an injected dye from their systems, and were more susceptible to traumatic injuries.
Dr Allada said: 'Waste clearance may occur during wake and sleep but is substantially enhanced during deep sleep.'
The researchers hope the findings will help to unravel the mystery of why all organisms need sleep.
'Our finding that deep sleep serves a role in waste clearance in the fruit fly indicates that waste clearance is an evolutionary conserved core function of sleep,' Dr Allada added.
'This suggests that waste clearance may have been a function of sleep in the common ancestor of flies and humans.'
The NHS advises that most adults need around six to nine hours sleep a night.
It said: 'By working out what time you need to wake up, you can set a regular bedtime schedule.
'It is also important to try and wake up at the same time every day. While it may seem like a good idea to try to catch up on sleep after a bad night, doing so on a regular basis can also disrupt your sleep routine.'
