Speaking of Instagram, Jake’s handle is @jakecornish7. He has just over six thousand followers, and shares pictures fro his travels as well as moments with his family and friends.

What Else Is There To Know About Jake?

Before Love Island, Jake was actually in a relationship for seven years. “Then when lockdown hit, I was single,” he explained. When the opportunity to apply to Love Island came up, his thinking was, “You might as well take it by the horns and go for it.”

In terms of what he is looking for, the 24-year-old says he usually go for blondes, and that his “dream woman” is Billie Faiers. “I think for a laugh once with the boys, I messaged her. I can’t remember what I messaged her. She’s a lady, she’s just lush.”

It’s not all about looks though. “For me, the main thing is having respect and having good fun, and someone who will be loyal to you,” said Jake. “I’ve had messages from girls that have got boyfriends and husbands. This is why I don’t trust anyone. Someone who is loyal really. But when I’m single, I like having a good time!”

Love Island starts at 9 p.m. Monday 28 June on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
