Skyrocketing into the public eye following Netflix’s 2023 release “Gran Turismo”, British professional racing driver Jann Mardenborough is a name on everyone’s mind. Some burning questions: Where is he now? Was the whole movie based on true events? Most importantly, who is Jann Mardenborough’s wife?

The third youngest winner of the GT Academy, “Gran Turismo” highlights pivotal moments from Mardenborough’s transition from a video game enthusiast to a professional racer. Within the narrative, his relationship with Audrey, portrayed by Maeve Courtier-Lilley, evolves from his early days in Darlington, UK, to triumph at the Le Mans 24-hour race in France. But is Audrey still around in real life?

Are Jann Mardenborough and Audrey Still Together?

After Mardenborough’s role in “Gran Turismo,” there was speculation that Audrey, portrayed in the film, mirrored his real-life partner. Contrary to these assumptions, Audrey is a fictional character, crafted solely for narrative depth in the movie. Her presence, originating from a party in their hometown, is a consistent emotional anchor throughout his story arc. Since Audrey is a creation of the script, the question arises: who is Mardenborough’s actual partner?

In 2018, rumors began to circulate about Mardenborough’s potential relationship with British fashion designer Sophie Hulme. Being that Mardenborough is particularly reserved when it comes to his private life and doesn’t give too much on social media, there isn’t much evidence to support that this couple is actually together, though there have been a few public sightings.

Sophie Hulme is known for her luxury bag label, which was launched in 2011 after studying Fashion Design at Kingston University. The designer was awarded a British Fashion Award in the “Emerging Talent, Accessories” category in 2012 and has only continued to build the brand’s name and legacy. Her collections are currently stocked in 200 locations and 30 countries.

As of now, we know Mardenborough to be unmarried while potentially brewing a casual romance with Hulme. Since he’s shared his intention to maintain the confidentiality of his personal life, the public may not hear much more of it until there are undeniable wedding bells. Until then, he’s hyperfocused on his career and continuing to grow his legacy.
