Love Island’s Jake slams ‘manipulative’ ITV for setting him up as ‘show villain’ and says he’s got death threats

LOVE Island’s Jake Cornish has slammed ITV producers for setting him up as the present’s ‘pantomime villain’, which led to him receiving a collection of death threats. 

The 24-year-old former water engineer fell out of favour with viewers after they watched his relationship with Liberty crumble – and he believes his scenes had been manipulated to make him look unhealthy.

Liberty, 22, and Jake had been agency favourites to win the ITV2 courting present after coupling up away and lasting seven weeks collectively within the villa.

But issues went bitter for the pair throughout a brutal cinema evening after Liberty noticed footage of Jake egging the boys on to cheat in Casa Amor.

Liberty was then horrified to listen to Jake’s savage remark about intercourse along with her.

Speaking about his time on the present, Jake advised MailOnline: “There’s stuff I’ve spoken to Lib about on digicam that hasn’t aired about how I used to be feeling. 

“It is not good I’ve been painted this fashion as a pantomime villain. It is not the nicest to come back throughout as somebody I’m not.

“They’ve got to make storylines but it isn’t nice when you’re on the back end. Liberty and I were big parts of the show; it was a way to make something out of it, which is a shame really. At the time I was like ‘what the hell?’”

After leaving the present, Jake – who stated he felt like a ‘caged animal’ within the villa – has been on the receiving finish of some terrifying trolling, together with death threats.

Fortunately the fact star has taken it on the chin, saying: “I am okay. I am very thick skinned. I’ve had a lot of death threats but the only people I care about are those that want to support me.”

A spokesperson for ITV stated: “The opinions they’ve, selections they make and the relationships fashioned are utterly throughout the management of the Islanders themselves.

“It is always our intention to produce a show that is a fair and accurate representation of life in the villa.”
