Wales Online asked for Psychologist Roy Shuttleworth to comment on the use of mentally unstable participants in reality television.
Clinical psychologist Roy Shuttleworth said Mrs Rees “seemed unstable”.
Mr Shuttleworth, who assesses contestants’ mental health to ensure they’re fit to take part in reality shows, said: “I think it was disgraceful. Obviously someone made an executive decision that it would be good television to show this woman being treated in the way she was.”
But he believes the appearance was very much the exception rather than the rule and most shows now have strong safeguards in place to protect the vulnerable.
