Jake Cornish is a 24-year-old water engineer hailing from Weston-Super-Mare.
The islander described himself as a "jack of all trades" when spilling the info on what he does for work.

When quizzed on how his family would describe him, the star said: "My family would say I’m the one who is always up for a laugh, always having fun.
"I don’t take anything seriously. The prankster! My nickname is Tigger from Winnie the Pooh because I’m always bouncing all over the place. I’ve always got so much energy."
Jake revealed that he recently got out of a long-term relationship but he's ready to get back into the dating world!
When talking about applying for the smash hit show, he said: "I was in a relationship for seven years and then when lockdown hit, I was single.
"The opportunity is there, you might as well take it by the horns and go for it."
He divulged some info on what kind of girl he'll be after in the villa, saying: "Looks-wise, I've always gone for blondes. But for me, the main thing is having respect and having good fun, and someone who will be loyal to you."
The 24-year-old star isn't a fan of dating apps, he revealed: "I went on an app once for about two days. I couldn’t deal with it, it was too much!
"I’d rather go out and meet a girl and go from there and pursue things naturally."
