'I'm relieved': Sherrie, the mother of Bride and Prejudice's Brad, 20, expresses her relief after her son DUMPS young fiancé Courtney Cole, 18, on national TV on Monday, during an interview with Nova's Kate, Tim and Marty on Wednesday morning

'My son has got more to do in life than be a husband at 20,' Sherrie said of the Channel Seven reality star.

Sherrie had always been against his interest in partner-turned-fiance Courtney Cole, 18, and insisted her behaviour was immature.

Speaking to the breakfast trio, she admitted it probably wouldn't have made a difference if it wasn't Courtney, because 20 was too young to settle down.

And Sherrie confirmed she was concerned for the pressure the show put both of the 'kids' in, as she stated: 'They're both very young and they didn't realize what they were in for.'

She also admitted they were paid a small fee to appear on the show, but Courtney was the instigator in applying for the series.

'They didn't realize what they were in for': Sherrie stated while the 'kids' were paid, she doesn't believe they were ready for the pressure of the show, adding herself and Brad were against taking part in the show, but did so after Courtney insisted

The mother claimed: 'Both Bradley and myself didn't want to go through with this. but Courtney wanted to do the show and I imagine she's regretful at the moment.' 

After she was dumped on national TV, the 18-year-old took to Instagram to make her opinions of the show known to her followers.

The outspoken blonde told fans that she and Brad were just 'two young kids manipulated' by Channel Seven producers and claimed their fight was heavily edited. 

'Tune into the web of lies spun by a set up TV show,' she wrote on Instagram alongside a glamorous selfie.
