Last week’s banished contestnat Nichole Wood, told A.B and Ben on the ‘Coff Coast’s Hit105.5‘ breakfast radio show said their group chat was shut down because of “drama”.

“There was a big group chat but yeah, it did stop because it became a bit too much, too much drama and everything,” Nichole said. 

“Everyone was in it. It has stopped now, and if you want to talk to someone, you talk to them individually. We just keep it out of being in a big group, because it can get a bit misconstrued.”
