Things could be over between Love Island’s Liberty Poole and Jake Cornish as she opens up to Faye Winter in an emotional chat.
In a teaser clip, fans saw Lib telling her beau: “I just don’t think we’re right for each other,” and now we’ve been given more of a glimpse as to why.
In the first look for Thursday night’s episode, we see the couple take selfies together and having a cuddle before it cuts to a shot of Liberty taking her mic off in the garden and walking towards the villa.
Faye Winter then chases after her to check if she’s ok, finding Lib in tears.
The former Nando’s waitress tells Faye: “I’ve just got to be true to myself and I can’t do this.”
“If I’m giving someone 100% energy and I’m not getting it in return, then I’d rather walk out of here with my head held high, knowing that I’ve stayed true to myself the whole way through.”
Faye then insists: “You have stayed true to yourself - that’s why you’re staying here, because you have.”
Sobbing, Lib then adds: “I don’t want to stay in the villa with someone who doesn’t like me, I love him. I don’t wanna be fake to myself and do that.”
Faye then embraces Liberty and reassures her, replying with: “We all love you.”
Later on, Lib opens up in the beach hut in another teary admission, saying: “All I can do is be me. I can’t be fake and pretend that I’m happy with someone when I’m not.”
Love Island continues at 9pm on ITV2.
