Jess Impiazzi has slammed Ex On The Beach producers, and compared the show to a “porn set”.

The reality star, who appeared on the show in 2015, has claimed that the show’s producers made her feel “cheap”.

Speaking on the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme, the 30-year-old said: “I felt under pressure the minute I walked in that you had to hook up with someone.”

“I had a producer say: ‘Lots of shagging tonight please girls’ – and I that’s when I thought: ‘I need to leave now.'”

“Why would you be telling me to do that? Is this a porn set? It made me feel really cheap. These were just random guys.”

Jess also claimed that she begged bosses not to show footage of her having sex with her ex-boyfriend.

She said: “Six sambucas in, at the end of the night, your boyfriend’s there. The cameras are everywhere and you just don’t think.”

“I did beg them. I cried my eyes out. I said: ‘Please don’t show that’ but you’ve signed your life away when you go on.”

Jess said she saw a psychologist before entering the Ex On The Beach villa, but claims she received no aftercare from the show.

In response to Jess’ claims, Whizzkid Entertainer, which is the company behind the MTV show, said: “Before production, we ensure a support structure is in place and all cast members are carefully interviewed and screened before going on camera.”

“Contributors are made fully aware of the nature of the programme before filming and we clearly highlight the impact of an increased public profile resulting from appearing in the show. Strict protocols around sex are in place to protect our cast.”

Jess spoke out about the show after the latest series was scrapped, following the death of Mike Thalassitis.

The Love Island star had filmed the series before he sadly took his own life back in March.

Out of respect for his family and friends, MTV decided to pull the entire season.
