Love Is Blind’s Amber Pike was in tears as she discussed being diagnosed with epilepsy after having a seizure on her bathroom floor.
The 27-year-old reality star, who married Matthew Barnett on the show, opened up about her recent health battles in the explosive reunion special, which dropped onto Netflix on Wednesday.
Amber recalled the horrific ordeal during a conversation with her husband’s mother about her desire to have a baby.
‘A few months ago I ended up seizing on our bathroom floor and Matt was just terrified he didn’t know what to do and eventually, I just stopped and snapped out of whatever that was,’ she said.
‘After that, I turned to Matt and was like, “let’s go to bed”.
She continued: ‘The next morning, he told me that happened, and I had zero recollection whatsoever, so I reached out to my doctor and I’ve been diagnosed with epilepsy.’

Amber revealed to Matt’s mum that she’s keen to have a baby soon, but he is worried about their finances and the practicalities of raising a child in a shared apartment.
‘I’m just scared that the longer we wait the harder things are going to be for me physically to have kids,’ she confessed.
‘I just feel like shoes keep dropping on us and he’s more concerned about his own affairs and he doesn’t acknowledge mine at all, especially when it comes to having a high-risk pregnancy.’
The Love Is Blind three-part reunion series catches up with the couples two years after they first met behind a screen.
While the likes of Lauren Speed and Cameron Hamilton, and Amber and Matt are still in love, a lot of the other contestants are still looking for love.
Love Is Blind After The Alter is available to stream on Netflix.
