When asked if fans should fans hold out for a ‘Jiberty’ reunion, Jake answered: ‘Never say never, time is a healer!’

Further probed on whether they will date on the outside the hunk from Weston-super-Mare replied: ‘Potentially. Who knows – cannot confirm or deny, I don’t know. Definitely we’ll keep in contact, even if it was as friends. 

‘I’ll always be there for her and she’s been there for me. She only sees the positive in people and that’s the girl I fell in love with. That doesn’t come around often. That’s a trait which is very, very hard to find in someone. She always puts people first.’

He added: ‘I can’t just switch feelings off like that, do you know what I mean? I do love the girl, it’s as simple as that.’

During the interview, Jake also responded to some fans’ claims he was being ‘fake’ or had a ‘game plan’ during his time in the Majorcan villa. 

He explained: ‘At the end of the day I’ve just got to be true to myself – if I was trying to have a game plan, I think I’d still be there, I wouldn’t have left. I think actions speak for themselves.

‘I’ve stepped aside from the people who have got something good going, so let them enjoy their moment. I’ve just been honest throughout the whole time. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinion.’

He went on to tell how the pair decided to leave so that the other couples had a chance of winning after feeling like they were ‘sucking the energy out of them’.

He said: ‘The last week of Love Island should be happy, looking forward to doing things. It was a case of me and Lib made the decision to step aside and remove ourselves from the situation.

‘I don’t want to be in there and, say for example, another couple gets voted out and me and Lib are still in there, I’d feel awful for the fact that they’ve gone, when they are a couple and a real couple who are together, and me and Lib aren’t anything no more. I just think it would be terrible, it wouldn’t be fair.’

The reality star also told how he would have shared the money if he had got the £50k envelope during a win at the final.  

He explained how his ‘whole journey had been Lib’ and how he ‘wouldn’t have got to where I am today’ if it hadn’t been for her.  

He added: ‘She only sees good in people, she only sees positive. She hasn’t got a bad bone in her body! So 100% sure she would have shared it because our journey was together.’

The reality star also dished the dirt on his ‘gut-wrenching’ breakup saying it ended on ‘very good terms but sad terms’, before insisting it didn’t get ‘nasty’. 

He said they could still ‘laugh and joke and look back at their memories’, adding: We fell in love with each other.

‘It’s almost like a movie; it started off strong, went bad, went strong again, then bad… will it go strong again on the outside? Who knows. I’m over the moon about the fact that we can still talk and can still be friends.’

Jake also went on to tell how his favourite moment of Love Island was the night he asked Liberty to be his girlfriend.  

At the end of the interview he also briefly gave his view on who he thinks is going to win, revealing he reckons Millie and Liam will bag the £50,000 prize. 

He explained: ‘They are joined at the hip. I had to book into Millie’s diary to get a bit of time with Liam. How far they’ve come to now. It’s like a love story and you’re in there to find love and I think they’ve found love.’
