When Married At First Sight’s hunky carpenter, Nick Furphy, revealed a penchant for strip clubs his shocked TV wife, Sharon Marsh, accused him of being “sleazy,” for looking at other woman in the nude.
But while the Perth bride was quick to judge her man’s past, it seems she is trying to hide one of her own.
Posing topless in a string of sizzling photographs the blonde beauty looks like a natural in front of the camera, but since signing up for the reality show, Sharon has been trying to hide them from fans.
Shutting down her social media accounts before re-launching new ones ahead of her television debut, the business owner has desperately tried to erase her raunchy escapades from history.
“She didn’t want her past to come back and haunt her,” says a friend. “So she deleted all of her old Instagram posts and started fresh,”
But New Idea uncovered the black and white shots taken by a London photographer in 2016 with her sister Michelle proudly commenting on the images, “Lurrrve this shot,” she wrote under one photo. “Good work on the rig,” she added to another.
Oozing confidence with her signature blonde locks framing her pretty face, twin Sharon’s sizzling shoot seems in stark contrast to her public outrage by Nick’s confession regarding his stripper habit.
Ready to call it quits when her handsome man admitted owning a membership to the gentlemen’s clubs he had become regular at, Sharon was quick to unleash her fury.
“It’s sleazy, it kind of shows a different side, and a side that I don’t like, to guys that go to those places and see and do what they do.
“I do question guys that spend a lot of time at strip joints. The way you can predict someone’s action is by looking into the past, in their past actions and how they go about things, and what they do.”
And while Sharon opted to continue their marriage, it wasn’t something she could easily forget.
“She struggled with that news and really judged Nick on it,” says a friend. “She was thinking of the future and having to start off in a long distance relationship and didn’t know if she could trust him.”
Sharon first shared concerns about her new husband when he got drunk and vomited at a group dinner party.
But as the controversial experiment continued the pair admitted to falling in love, wanting to give it a shot after the cameras stopped rolling.
“They are still together and really happy,” says the friend. “It’s been hard with the traveling from Perth to Melbourne but Nicks taken a lot of time off work and they are making plans for a relocation.”
But friends say the last thing she wanted were her sultry images surfacing because of the explosive argument and accusations she has made towards Nick.
“She knows she will be seen as a hypocrite. She took her clothes off to pose and was happy for strangers to see her when they were plastered all over social media,” says a friend. “It makes her argument about Nick being sleazy for looking at women like that sound ridiculous.”
The news also comes after it was reveled that cast members had shared topless shots of hairdresser Cheryl, who the twins and their close friend Andrew had been publicly accused of bullying.
When Cheryl’s photos emerged Andrew was reportedly left questioning her character while his cast mates “passed around,” the images.
But unlike like the brunette beauty, who had stripped down to black underwear for a topless waitressing job and was unaware she was being snapped, racy cleaner Sharon is seen wearing nothing but skimpy knickers on a bed as she poses for the camera.
