Love Island’s Jake FINALLY tells Liberty he loves her after she confronts him over his feelings

Friday night’s Love Island episode saw Jake Cornish finally tell Liberty Poole he loved her after she confronted him over his true feelings for her.

In recent days, Liberty has questioned Jake’s genuineness over their romance, with her doubts heightened in the latest challenge in which they were voted the couple with the most one-sided relationship.

And after a candid make-or-break conversation, Jake finally said those three little words four weeks after Liberty first uttered them, but viewers at home were not convinced and accused him of saying ‘what she wants to hear’.

Sitting him down on the roof terrace, Liberty was determined to hear Jake’s real feelings for her once and for all and questioned him on why he hadn’t said ‘I love you’ despite her saying it a month previously. 

She also confronted him on how much he actually liked her and how much was him playing up to the cameras, while she claimed she didn’t want to feel like a ‘mug’ if their relationship was one-sided. 

Arguing his point, Jake said that he didn’t want to ‘throw out’ the words ‘I love you’ and said that making her his girlfriend meant more than him saying it.

He also said that he didn’t want to make the grand declaration after his return from Casa Amor as it didn’t ‘feel right’.

On whether their relationship was genuine, he told her that he’d never said anything that implied she had doubts, while he asked her to directly tell him if she didn’t feel OK and for him not to have to hear it from other people.

And after Liberty said how she felt about him, he finally told her the words that she longed to hear.

He said: ‘I don’t feel like I’m going to get hurt from you but I haven’t told you how I feel… we are well suited and made for each other…you are a part of me, I feel like I’ve found what Iv’e been looking for because I love you.

While a fourth simply put: ‘that whole speech was planned out.’

‘Liberty if you have to ask for someone to say they love you, THEY DON’T!’ said another, with a different viewer sharing: ‘All that stuttering and giggling because he was nervous because he knew he was about to tell a lie.’

With another adding: ‘Hmmmm is he saying love you now just because He’s been called out or is he lying.’

Earlier in the show, Liberty was left disturbed as she and Jake were voted as having the most one-sided relationship, as well as the couple most likely to split when they leave the villa. 

As the other islanders were shocked into silence amid the one-sided vote, Liberty tried to brush off their viewer vote as she said ‘not cool’ and joked it was’ savage’.

But in the beach hut she expressed her shock, remarking: ‘Never in a million years I expected us to be up there, at all, it’s mind-blowing. I’m really confused.’
