Love Island’s Jake wants to take Liberty for dinner despite devastating breakup

Despite their dramatic break-up, Love Island’s Jake Cornish has said he still wants to take ex-girlfriend Liberty Poole for dinner.

The Bristolian only spoke to Liberty for the first time since leaving the villa today (August 23), during an awkward reunion on ITV's This Morning.

The couple decided to call off their relationship and bid an emotional farewell to their fellow Islanders only a few days before tonight’s (August 23) final, informing them of the news after going on their final date together.

But now, despite the acrimonious end to their relationship, Jake Cornish has said he still wants to keep in contact with Liberty.

When asked what the future holds for the pair on the Love Island Morning After official podcast, Jake said: “I would like to take her out for dinner.

“We ended on no bad blood, but when we left we were like ‘it’s going to be different on the outside.’

“You want to see what they’d be like on the outside in there but you can’t because you’re in a bubble.”

However, despite spending weeks together inside the villa with Liberty, Jake revealed: “I haven’t even got her number.

“I haven’t been in contact with her for the past four days now”, he continued.

This morning, however, the couple appeared on ITV and were interrogated by hosts Ruth Langford and Eamonn Holmes.

It was the first time they'd been seen in public together since the dramatic split, and Liberty looked uneasy when asked by Eamonn whether the two wanted to "cuddle and kiss" now that they were back in the outside world.

But the couple's emotional breakup hasn’t deterred Jake from hoping he might still be able to see Liberty in the outside world. “At the end of the day, it takes two to tango,” he accepted, “so if she doesn’t want to come for dinner then there’s your answer.”

Liberty was posed a similar question by the podcast’s hosts Kem Cetinay and Arielle Free, and her response was non-committal.

“I definitely think that we’ll stay friends,” she said.

“Me and him, our relationship started off banter, like it was just banter, fun, and then obviously the sexual attraction grew from that as well.”

However, assessing why the relationship didn’t work out, she explained, “when things started to happen where we needed to get through it as a couple, I just feel like we just communicated differently.

“The energy between me and him was off. It wasn’t like what we had previously, and things that were being said, it might just have been banter from his end but the energy was just off and it just didn’t feel right.”

Tonight’s (August 23) final will see the four remaining couples compete for a prize fund of £50,000.
