MAFS: Jake Edwards denies rumours he’s dating Bachelor star Jessica Brody 

Rumours surfaced a week ago that Jake Edwards from Married At First Sight was secretly dating Bachelor alum Jessica Brody.

But the 33-year-old charity CEO, who is paired with business manager Beck Zemek on Nine’s social experiment, has now set the record straight.

Jake told Hit Hobart’s Jimmy & Nath he was not dating the tattooed brunette, 32, and insisted they were just friends.

‘Jess and I are just mates… I think she’s seeing someone else,’ he said. 

The rumours had started when a photo surfaced on social media of Jess, from Matt Agnew’s season of The Bachelor, having drinks with Jake at a Melbourne hotspot.

The picture showed two glasses of wine – one red and one white.

Alongside the alcoholic beverages, eagle-eyed fans spotted Jess’ distinctive fake fingernails and Jake’s hand tattoo, which reads ‘order’.  

Speaking exclusively to Daily Mail Australia on Sunday, Jessica confirmed the pair had indeed caught up for a drink.

But she clarified they were friends and nothing more.

‘I’m in a relationship with someone else,’ she said.

During his radio chat, Jake was asked if he would ever consider dating Jess, but he was certain they’d never cross that line.

‘No I wouldn’t have though so, no,’ he said.

When asked if he expected such a reaction to the dating rumours, Jake said he was surprised by ‘how big a cult following reality TV has’. 

Meanwhile, Jake has his own relationship with highly strung Beck Zemek to deal with on Married At First Sight, and things don’t seem to be going well.

Beck has rebuffed her husband’s advances, and even accused him of looking at her in a lewd manner on their wedding day.

Married At First Sight continues Wednesday at 7:30pm on Channel Nine
