Married At First Sight star Jake Edwards’ ex Sophie Guidolin appears downcast as she’s pictured for the first time since the pair’s VERY public split

It was announced on May 14 that Married At First Sight’s Jake Edwards and his girlfriend Sophie Guidolin had ended their short-lived romance.

And on Saturday, Sophie was spotted for the first time since the pair’s very public break-up came to light, as she enjoyed a jog near her home on the Gold Coast.

The 32-year-old appeared downcast as she ran down the street dressed in active gear, showing off her rock-hard abs and slender frame in the process.

Sophie sported minimal make-up on her face, and whisked her hair into a low ponytail.

She wore headphones in her ears, and tied a jumper around her waist as she exercised alone. 

While Jake has kept a low profile since their break-up was confirmed, Sophie recently shed light on their broken relationship by wishing Jake ‘all the best’ in getting ‘the help he needs’ in a now-deleted Instagram post.

‘Are you and Jake still together? Your media hype of the both of you together has died so I was curious,’ the follower asked Sophie directly on Instagram.

‘No, his values and character certainly do not align with my own and I wish him all the best to get the help he needs,’ Sophie responded.

A source close to the couple confirmed their split on Friday. Daily Mail Australia understands no third parties were involved and no cheating was suspected.

Sophie had been the target of trolling since going public with Jake last month, and this may have put a strain on their romance.

‘It’s sad because they seemed really in love, but they just couldn’t make it work,’ the source said.

Jake had to keep their relationship under wraps to begin with because his ‘marriage’ to Beck Zemek was still playing out on MAFS.

In a now-deleted episode of her podcast, Flourish & Fulfilled, Sophie told listeners Jake had surprised her recently by getting her name tattooed on his body.

The former AFL player later revealed he’d had ‘Sophie’ inked quite prominently across the right side of his stomach.

Shortly after their split, Beck confirmed she’s now in a relationship herself – but couldn’t resist posting a snarky dig at Jake.

Besides a picture with her new love, she wrote: ‘No tattoos, just love.’
