Love Island All Stars fans were convinced they spotted the moment Jake Cornish decided to leave the villa during Tuesday’s episode of the show.

The former contestant, 26, who starred on series seven of the show, faced an awkward reunion with ex Liberty Poole, 24, when he entered the South African villa.

Jake reportedly decided he ‘couldn’t stay’ after the public voted for the exes to be coupled up together on last night’s launch show.

Reality star Jake was left red-faced on Tuesday when one of his preferences in the bedroom was exposed by Liberty. 

As part of a game, Liberty was asked: ‘Which Islander of the opposite ex gives you the ick and why,’ to which Jake scoffed and looked away.

She answered: ‘I’ve got to say Jake. I think the foot fetish.’

Shaking his head, Jake smiled and said: ‘It got blown well out of proportion,’ to which the rest of the Islanders burst out into laughter.

Jake decided he ‘couldn’t stay’ after the public voted for the exes to be coupled-up together on last night’s launch show.

Viewers were quick to take to social media after the scenes aired, insisting Jake was too humiliated to remain on the show. 

One person wrote on Twitter: ‘Ohhh so he quit because Liberty exposed his foot fetish! makes sense.’

While someone else shared: ‘I think Jake left because lib exposed his foot fetish.’

Someone else posted: ‘Ohh so the foot fetish comment is what got Jake packing looooool I see.’

And another person wrote: ‘The foot fetish comment definitely tipped Jake over the edge… I already thought he left because he didn’t wanna get pied twice…’

‘SO JAKE LEFT OVER LIB CALLING HIS FOOT FETISH OUT,’ exclaimed another viewer.

While another show fan remarked: ‘LOOLLL JUSTICE FOR LIBERTY!!!! She called out Jake’s foot fetish and how he is a walking ick!!’

‘Liberty bringing up the foot fetish LMFAOOOO,’ wrote someone else, while another viewer shared: ‘LIBERTY BAITING OUT JAKE’S FOOT FETISH LMFAOOO.’

Meanwhile, Liberty was seen sharing a moment with Messy Mitch despite him being coupled-up with her good friend Kaz.

In scenes which aired just minutes after her revelation about Jake’s foot fetish, she was seen spraying oil onto former gas engineer Mitch’s back before giving him a massage.

Michel exclaimed: ‘That’s amazing.’

It emerged Jake had quit Love Island All Stars on Tuesday, the day after the launch episode of the new series aired. 

‘Jake was really shocked to see Liberty in the villa – they had no idea the other person would be there,’ a source told The Sun.

‘It was clear from the start they wouldn’t get back together, then none of the girls wanted to step forward for him.

‘Jake had a nice three days in the villa and had a very emotional chat to Maya Jama, he couldn’t stay in the villa so he quit the show. It’s not his time and it’s not the right time to find love.’

MailOnline has contacted ITV and Jake’s representatives for comment.

Jake and Liberty were among 12 former Islanders who appeared on the new spin-off show. The series sees past contestants head into the villa to try to find love once more.

Ahead of her re-entry, Liberty admitted it might be ‘awkward’ coming across her ex and seemingly shut down the possibility of any rekindled romances.

She got a nasty surprise when – not only was she faced with her ex-boyfriend Jake – but the public voted for them to form a couple.

Liberty revealed they hadn’t spoken for three years and could only say ‘oh my God’ as she saw him walk through the villa.

They were quick to shoot down any possibility of rekindling the romance when asked by host Maya Jama.

When Maya asked: ‘Is there any room for a rekindle do we think?’ both Liberty and Jake immediately shook their heads and in unison replied: ‘No.’

The pair shared a turbulent relationship on the show in 2021, with Liberty falling hard and fast for Jake, but her feelings seemingly not being reciprocated.

The couple became the first to become official in series seven.

However, during the Casa Amor loyalty test, Jake was seen encouraging his male co-stars to play away from their partners.

Clips of this moment were played during the iconic Movie Night, as well as earlier conversations of him talking to the boys about his feelings for Liberty.

In one video he told the guys: ‘Her personality is mint, I can’t fault her. It’s like talking to Jake with a wig on. It’s just not that 100 per cent where I look at her and go… I haven’t got the girl there where I’m like f*** me I want to rip your clothes off.

‘I don’t want to fake any s*** you know what I mean? I don’t want to say I really do like her when I don’t, I’d be lying to myself.’

Jake was also accused of ‘gaslighting’ and demonstrating ‘toxic’ traits after he failed to compliment Liberty, and made comments on her appearance and ‘messy habits’.

The exes hadn’t spoken for three years before the All Stars show.

Liberty previously said she would encourage her ex to focus on pursuing a new romance in the villa if he was to enter before the launch.

She said: ‘I haven’t spoken to him since. If he’s in there and wants a conversation then I’m happy to do that… at the time I didn’t have any regrets about my experience in the villa. I did what was right for me.

‘I wish him the best and if we were both in there together I want him to focus on finding love because that’s what I’m going to be doing.

‘I don’t want us being in the same room to take away from each other’s experiences. I will be civil… maybe we could even be mates… who knows?’

Meanwhile, Jake brushed off any potential drama between the pair before entering the villa as he insisted there was no ‘bad blood’ between them, despite their shock on-screen break-up.

‘Well there is only one and that’s Liberty. We never ended with any bad blood between us and everything happens for a reason. We just become two different people in the end,’ he said.

Love Island All Stars continues at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX on Wednesday 17 January.

Why are you returning to the Love Island Villa? This is the last year of my 20s so I want to go in the Villa and have some fun and hopefully meet someone that I can fall in love with. I’m lucky in the sense that I’ve got everything in my life that I could possibly wish for, apart from love.

If you had to pick your top Islanders from Series 1 to 10 to couple up with who would they be and why? Chris Taylor, he’s hilarious and the main thing I’m attracted to is a man who can make me laugh. What a fun guy and like I said, I’m looking for someone to TikTok with so I reckon he’d be game for that sort of stuff!

How will you feel if you come across an ex in the Villa or someone you’ve dated from the show since? It will be interesting to see if old flames get reignited. Naturally with Love Island paths are very much crossed and believe me, I have some paths!

Why are you returning to the Love Island Villa? I’m returning to the Love Island Villa because I did it eight years ago and what an opportunity I never thought I’d get again. I’m not very good at finding love but I had a ball the first time, so I’m going to have a ball again.

You got engaged on the show last time, do you think wedding bells could be on the cards again this time round? Absolutely not, not in the Villa no. Maybe when I get out, but I’d need to give it a bit of time.

Why are you returning to the Love Island Villa? I’m 25, I have a house, a cat, a nice car – I have everything in life but a boyfriend, so why not give it as go.

You’ve been brave and honest in opening up about being conned by a former partner. How has this experience impacted the way in which you now approach dating? 

I take that experience as a really positive reflection now. I look at it as something I had to go through to make me stronger and learn things in life for me to be able to learn what I want in my next partner.

What will you do differently this time round? When it comes to people’s opinions, I don’t sit on the fence anymore. That is my way of life now, so I will take that into the Villa.

Why are you returning to the Love Island Villa? If I’m Single and Love Island is an opportunity for me, how could you turn down the chance to find love again?!

You were in a long term relationship with Chloe Burrows, what do you think her reaction will be when she hears you are going into the Villa? I don’t know how she would take it. We will always have love for each other and I think she would wish me the best of luck, as I would certainly do the same.

Why are you returning to the Love Island Villa? Last time I was only there for 15 days, so I want to do it and enjoy it all again. I am 33 now and getting on a bit – I am getting ear hair! It would be nice to have a girl to keep my ears trimmed for me!

How did the Barbie Movie come about? I was invited to an afterparty by Margot Robbie and then ended up at an after party with her. I started to panic and make conversation with her, just having really stupid chats. All I can assume is that my silly chat made an impression on Margot Robbie. 18 months later I got an email from Warner Brothers asking do you want to try out for this role as Ken – it was a tumble dryer of emotions.

Why are you returning to the famous Love Island Villa? It was the best experience of my life. I found love in the Villa before and who knows if I can find love in there again?

What will you do differently this time round? 

I’m a lot older and wiser, so I know what I am getting myself into. I don’t have a game plan at all – I am an open book so I will go with the flow and see what happens.

Why are you returning to the Love Island Villa? For me it was a no brainer. I got the call and it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity and probably the best summer I have ever had in my life. Getting the chance to do it twice is going to be unbelievable.

Why do you think the Love Island Villa is the perfect place to find love? 

I think this time with Love Island: All Stars, things will be different, as we all understand what it’s like to go on Love Island and the only thing now missing is finding a partner.

SERIES: 10 

Why are you returning to the Love Island villa? I think I went in with my heart on my sleeve the first time and got hurt and this time I am just going in to enjoy myself and if a connection happens, a connection happens.

In the summer you were given the name ‘Messy Mitch’, and a name that you have taken on as your own,  can we expect more of the same in the series? I’ll be honest, I don’t really plan on being ‘Messy Mitch’. It just depends on what day of the week it is. I wear my emotions on my sleeve and what you see is what you get. I am very honest and very opinionated and I think that’s what people like me for. If I don’t agree with something, I’m not going to hold it back.
