Love Island viewers aren’t happy about Jake Cornish’s actions toward girlfriend Liberty Poole at the moment.
After Jake was seen in the video clip challenge telling the lads he ‘doesn’t want to rip Lib’s clothes off’ right at the start of the series, things have only continued to go down hill for the couple.
Viewers took to Twitter to say watching Jake hold her back was ‘uncomfortable’ and ‘weird’.
“Jake was f*****g weird for not letting Liberty go and congratulate kaz [sic],” one person tweeted.
Even 2019 contestant Amber Gill agreed, tweeting: “Why did Jake drag Liberty away from the fun of celebrating with Kaz. Potentially the strangest thing I’ve witnessed.”
“Anyone else feel realllly uncomfortable watching Jake isolate Liberty from the group when Kaz came down last night?” Commented a third.
Another viewer had a theory Jake is thinking more about the public's perception of him, claiming: “Jake is trying to ride on the wave of public likability for Liberty and Kaz’ friendship. Now Kaz is in a couple, he wants it to be those 4 that are pally pally and hang out so they can become the faves.”
Liberty was later seeing telling Millie Court about the awkward moment, saying it gave her “the ick.”
And in the teaser for Friday night’s episode it seems the couple finally confront each other about the change in their dynamic, with Jake claiming things haven’t been the same since the movie night challenge.
