A source told MailOnline: ‘It was a really tough decision for the couple to make, but it felt like the right thing to do.
‘They’d given it their all on camera and wanted to let their friends in other couples have a chance at winning.
‘Saying goodbye was emotional for all the Islanders, as they’ve become so close, like family, but it won’t be long before they’re all reunited.
‘It’s not 100 per cent over for Jake and Liberty, there are still a lot of feelings involved, so who knows what will happen on the future.’
On Thursday, Liberty called time on her romance with Jake, four weeks after they made their relationship official.
Liberty’s mum is already in Mallorca, after flying to the villa to film the episode where the Islanders meet the parents so, she has the necessary support around her.

A Love Island spokesperson said: ‘We won’t be commenting on speculation around tonight’s episode. All will be revealed later.’
While the couple ended amicably, Liberty was devastated, telling Faye: ‘I’ve just got to be true to myself and I can’t do this.
‘It’s nothing against Jake and it’s nothing against me but I can just tell that I’m giving him the ick over little things like being messy and I would rather walk out being me.
‘If I’m going someone 100 per cent energy and I’m not getting it in return then I’d rather walk out here Faye with my head held high knowing I stayed true to myself the whole way through.
‘Even though I didn’t find love, I found self-love and I wouldn’t change myself for anyone, and I’m not saying Jake isn’t a genuine guy but he’s just not right for me.’
