Married at First Sight’s Erin loses licence

Married at First Sight star Erin Bateman has had her licence suspended for six months.

The 25-year-old, who is still together with her ‘husband’ Bryce, took to Instagram to share the news with her fans.

“Hey everyone, not a traditional ‘Erin Post’ today…” she wrote.

“The 24/06/16 marks my first day of me not having a license. When I was younger I made a lot of stupid decisions and never truly understood the consequences of my actions. Today all of my stupidity has caught up with me, and what has been 3 years of mistakes in the making has resulted in me losing my drivers license for 6 months.

“Although now I understand the importance of acting responsibly behind the wheel of a car, the reality is this could have been a VERY different outcome.”

Erin and ‘husband’ Bryce.

“All I can say is how ashamed I am that as a young adult I didn’t put my own safety and the safety of others before ‘getting somewhere fast’ and today I pay the price for that.

“I’m not going to fight this, make excuses or even complain, I’m going to wear it and learn. Don’t be a f–king idiot behind the wheel of a car like I was, be safe so your loved ones never have to worry about you.”

She finished the post with a series of hashtags including #drivesafe and #publictransportadventuresstartnow
