Love Island 2021 is here!
If you're anything like us then you want to know all the details about the islanders that are dancing across our screens this summer!
Liberty Poole revealed that she applied for the hit dating show because she wanted the "best summer ever" and described herself as a 'social butterfly' who's eager to make friends in the famous villa!
Here's what you need to know about Liberty Poole, from her age to her job to her social media platforms…
Liberty is a 21-year-old from Birmingham, who studies marketing and works as a waitress at Nando's.
The student said that she's "had a few things happen at work" and has even had a customer propose to her on shift!
The reality-star-to-be stated that: "I've had people try and rinse me for a date at Nando’s, get the discount and stuff. But I’ve never had a date in one."
Liberty revealed that she's after that "nice, happy relationship" that she's never been lucky enough to experience in the past.
The self-professed "girl's girl" is looking forward to making friends and enjoying the sun after a year stuck in lockdown.
The 21-year-old said: "I love to meet new people. I can’t wait for the girly friendships. It’s going to be fun!"
She's after a "tall, alpha male, confident, cheeky chappy sort of guy" but claims that she's fallen victim to the "player types" in the past – Liberty is hoping to kick that habit in the Love Island villa!
"I'm trying to change my ways and go for more of a nicer guy that is going to treat me right."
You can follow Liberty on Instagram @livertypoolex, she already has over 9,000 followers at the time of writing – watch her follower count skyrocket as the series begins!
