Farmer Wants A Wife star defends friend: 'Any good single guys out there?'

Jess Cova has opened up about life with Farmer Will, while also throwing her support behind Sophie Holcombe.

Farmer Wants a Wife fan favourite Jess Cova has opened up to fans about her relationship with Farmer Will on Instagram, giving people a sneak peek into their happy life, 18 months after meeting on the show.

Jess and Will met on the 2022 series of Farmer Wants A Wife and have been going strong ever since, with Jess relocating from Queensland to Victoria to be with Will.

In a series of Instagram Q&As, Jess said she loved being 'Will's little sidekick' on the farm, and while farm life can be tough, she deemed it 'our new reality.'

"We do the best we can with what we can, and I try to travel back to Queensland regularly," she shared.

'Most of all we love each other'

When asked if fans could be expecting any type of exciting announcement soon, Jess photographed her left hand and cheekily tagged Will, simply using a couple of question marks to answer the original question.

"We are very good," she elaborated.

“We argue, we fix things, we grow, we disagree, we laugh, we play, and most of all we love each other.”

Jess also then joked she and Will had been together for "1 year and 7 months, going on 5 years."

Jess on being Team Sophie

Last month, Farmer Wants A Wife fans were rocked by the shock split of Farmer Brenton and Sophie Holcombe.

Sophie told Yahoo Lifestyle in August that the two had mutually split.

"Brenton and I mutually parted, but are no longer in regular communication. I wish him all the best for a happy future," she said.

Brenton then spoke to Yahoo Lifestyle a few days later, insinuating there was more to the split.

"We still seemed to be OK then she blocked me off social media. Then goss (rumours) started flying around the community about someone new on the scene," he said.

Now Jess has shed some light on whether Sophie is single or not during her Q&A.

When Jess was asked who her favourite people on the 2023 season were, after saying Clare Hoskings and Farmer Brad, she also name-dropped Sophie.

“So any good single guys out there? Head her way!" she said,
