This comes after Davina contacted Zoe to share her distress at seeing the post.
Zoe, who was matched with now-husband Alex on the show in 2015, posted a since-deleted meme featuring Davina on Instagram, which she describes as having “crossed the line into bullying.”
“As soon as I posted it, something didn’t feel right. My gut instinct told me it wasn’t true to who I am or what I’m about,” she wrote in a follow-up Instagram post on Tuesday afternoon.

“A few hours later Davina contacted me and outlined how hurt she was to see it.
“She is really struggling with the intensity of the online attacks. I had added to it.”
Zoe shared the details of the encounter alongside a screenshot of Davina’s message to her.
In it, Davina said that Zoe “of all people” should know how reality TV and editing works.
“You don’t know me, however I know you have many opinions of me,” Davina began.
“I really hope your little girl never has to go through the cyberbullying or attacks that I’ve experienced over this horrible time.
“Just a thought before you say your next hurtful sentence about me. There’s two sides to every story.”
