‘As soon as I met Jake we just instantly clicked in the first few weeks,’ the Nandos waitress said. 

The couple went from strength to strength throughout the show, but cracks began to show in the Mad Movies challenge, which saw the contestants being shown clips from various unseen events. 

Jake featured in one where he admitted to not being sexually attracted to Liberty in the beginning of their relationship.

He hit back to the claims saying: ‘I struggle to articulate my words. I told her there and then when she asked me how I felt.’
