Like the rest of the Islanders, Liberty and Jake were offered the opportunity for one last date, ultimately deciding it would be “silly not to go”.
Together, they then took to the seas on a luxurious boat, with Jake telling his recent ex: “It’s a tricky one really. I didn’t think I’d be coming on a date with the one I thought was the one.”
She then replied: “I don’t know what happened along the way but the spark just faded.”
“On my behalf I felt the affection died out,” he explained. “That’s a big thing for me and that’s nothing against you as a person.”
Liberty then told Jake that she “did fall in love” with him during their time in the villa, adding: “At one point I thought I had found the one but once the honeymoon passes you start seeing the cracks.”
Upon returning to the villa, the two then gathered the rest of the Islanders to give them some news.
Asked whether this announcement related to Liberty and Jake’s rumoured exit, an ITV rep said: “We won’t be commenting on speculation around tonight’s episode. All will be revealed later.”
The MailOnline were the first to claim that the pair had decided to leave the ITV2 reality show just days before the final, on Friday morning.
According to the online outlet, an unnamed source said Liberty and Jake felt it was “the right thing to do” and had an “emotional” goodbye with their fellow contestants prior to their exit.
Love Island continues on Friday night at 9pm on ITV2.
