Mollie Pearce wishes she warned her boyfriend about Harry Clark romance rumours before appearing on ‘The Traitors’.
The 22-year-old model was said to be romantically linked to Harry, 22, during her time on the Claudia Winkleman-led reality show, and admitted she wished she warned her boyfriend Max about the potential of rumours going into the programme.
She told OK! Magazine: “This is super interesting because neither of us warned our partners about how the public was going to react to our friendship because, for us, it was just that.
“We just happened to be opposite sexes of similar ages. It [the rumours] took me by surprise, and I wish I could have prepared Max, but I never saw that coming. It’s obviously not very nice for our other halves to read that stuff.”
Mollie made it to the final of the BBC show, but lost out on the £95,000 cash prize after Harry betrayed her and revealed himself as a Traitor.
Reflecting on the show, the model admitted she had some regrets, but was still proud of herself for making it so far.
She said: “In hindsight, yes I have some regrets, but I can’t beat myself up about it, can I?
“People are like, ‘Why didn’t you spot this?’ I just didn’t and that’s the end of it.
“I’m still proud of myself for getting to the final no matter what, and I had the best experience. I’ve made friends for life.”
Mollie also hit back at viewers who said she was “too nice”, and insisted that Harry had just “played a great game”.
She explained: “I don’t think I was too nice. It was the game to deceive, and if a Traitor was going to win the game, someone had to trust them otherwise what was the point?
“I don’t think trusting Harry made me too nice, I think it just means he played a great game.”
