Love Island may have many, many more weeks to come, but for one couple it might seem like they have already fallen desperately in love – just four days after meeting.
Brummie waitress Liberty Poole, 21, was partnered with hunky 24-year-old engineer Jake Cornish, from Weston-super-Mare, at the first coupling ceremony of the 2021 series on Monday.
And after just days together, the couple have admitted they cannot wait to lay eyes on each other every morning when they wake.
In scenes set to air during Thursday nights’ episode, Jake and Liberty are seen confessing their feelings for each other inside the Beach Hut – and later to each other.
“The rest of them, I think it’s going to change. I don’t think it’s going to be Faye and Brad as a couple until the end. I think people are going to come in and their heads are going to be turned.”
And Shannon shared her advice for future contestants, saying: “Honestly, do you. Do whatever you’re comfortable with, even if you feel an idiot doing it. Don’t do anything you’re going to go to bed and think, ‘I wish I’d never done that or said that’. Then you can really walk away from the experience and be like, it is what it is.”
Love Island continues tonight on ITV2 and via the ITV Hub at 9pm
