LOVE is Blind’s Jessica has responded to the major backlash after she shared wine with her dog in shocking scenes.

The dating show sees 30 men and women try to find love without actually meeting, spending 10 days in a speed dating format where they date in different pods.

While they can talk, they can't see each other but in episode six that could be just as well as Jessica, 34, revealed a disturbing habit she has with her dog.

As she chatted to Mark Cuevas, who is 10 years her junior, Jessica started sharing her glass of red with her pooch, putting the glass to her dog's mouth so she could take a sip, adding: "She loves wine".

Viewers were disgusted by the scenes, and addressing the backlash, Jessica told Entertainment Weekly: "I definitely have never done that before; I won’t do that again.

"I love my dog more than anything and that was not something I would ever recommend anyone to do. I think I was just really uncomfortable.

"I don’t even remember doing it. I don’t know why I did that but it was definitely unnecessary for sure.”

It wasn't only her dog's drinking habits which were a concern for Jessica, as she admits to indulging a bit too much on booze herself while filming.

She said: "I think there’s a reason that there’s sometimes alcohol around during these reality shows.

"Sometimes you loosen up and these moments can kind of come out. I really wish that I would have been better about the drinking for me.

"I was really uncomfortable and so I had a few moments where I overdrank.

"I know the first one I took accountability for on camera and then the bachelorette party as well.

"If I could do anything differently it would be that I didn’t have so much to drink.”

Love is Blind is available to stream on Netflix now.
