The TV personality recently opened up to The Sun about her relationship with the personal trainer.
She explained: “Two weeks before I was due to freeze my eggs in November 2018 I met Jake, 27, a fellow PT. We hit it off and I told him about getting my eggs frozen. Thankfully, he was very open-minded about it.
“However, I’d already started injecting myself with hormones, which didn’t give us the easiest start to our relationship.
“It didn’t affect our sex life, but my moods were all over the place, and some days all I wanted to do was curl up into a ball. But Jake was so supportive and even came with me for my first procedure.”
Emily’s final post on her Instagram page was shared one day ago.
The fitness enthusiast spoke out about a negative comment she received on the social media platform due to her toned physique.
She was pictured in a boxing club in the post and she added the caption: “‘EMILY, ARE YOU A MAN?’
“Someone messaged me this on Instagram last week and it doesn’t upset me.
“I just think it’s LAUGHABLE. This is 2019, how are some of us still stuck in the 1800s. I don’t believe there are such things as ‘Manly’ or ‘feminine’.”
