Former Love Island star Liberty Poole has given her first interview since she decided to leave the show.
Liberty has been romantically involved with Jake Cornish since entering the Love Island mansion on day one and remained in a relationship until their final breakup earlier this week.
Since then, both Liberty and Jake have made the decision to leave the mansion just days before this year’s winning couple is crowned.
As she pondered the choices she’d made over the course of the series in an interview with The Sun, Liberty insisted she stand by everyone.

Of her and Jake’s decision to end their relationship, Liberty told the newspaper: “It might be different from the audience’s perspective, but I’m glad I made that decision.
“Even if [Jake] had said [he wanted to] Try it out, I’ve already had things on my mind that don’t go well with each other.
“If he had said, ‘Let’s try it,’ it wouldn’t have been the right decision. I made the right decision for both of us so that we could both go our separate ways. “
After reviewing the issues affecting her relationship with Jake, Liberty added, “I did the right thing.”
