A House Rules star won her case against Seven and will receive compensation after suffering a 'psychological injury during filming that left her suicidal and unable to find a job.'

Nicole Prince, who featured on the show in 2017, said she lost work after being portrayed as a bully. 

And on Wednesday, Married At First Sight's Tracey Jewel, 37, told The Daily Telegraph that she has a good case against Channel Nine and production company Endemol Shine Australia and is considering taking legal action.

'To be honest, I've been inundated with people calling me and lawyers wanting to take my case, I'm a bit overwhelmed but it's all positive,' Tracey said.  

'It is obviously early days [but] taking legal action is something that I might do. I obviously need to do my own research but [Nicole's case] has definitely opened a door to that being a possibility,' she continued. 

Tracey revealed to Daily Mail Australia in July that the backlash she received since appearing on MAFS early last year had made it difficult for her to find steady work.

'No one will hire me, due to all this ongoing negative attention,' she said. 'My name and reputation is ruined.'

Seven has been ordered to compensate Nicole for her medical treatment in relation to the injury.
