Jake Cornish departed 'Love Island: All Stars' because it wasn't the "right time" for him to find love.

The 26-year-old star quit the villa after three just three days, and admitted he didn't want to "force a connection" on the ITV2 dating show.

He said in a statement: "After a few amazing days in the villa, I’ve made the decision to leave 'Love Island: All Stars' as I’ve realised that now isn’t the right time for me to find love as I would never want to force a connection."

Despite his short stint in the villa, Jake insisted he has "no regrets" from his time on the brand-new spin-off show.

Jake had an awkward reunion with his ex Liberty Poole in the villa.

The pair - who were affectionately known as Jiberty when they became an item in 2021 - were early favourites to win series seven, but their relationship fell apart following a dramatic Movie Night episode, and they ended up walking from the series just four days before the final.

But Jake has now admitted living alongside Liberty again on 'Love Island: All Stars' gave him an "opportunity to clear the air" with her.

He added: "I have no regrets whatsoever as I’m so glad I got to enjoy my time in the villa reuniting with some familiar faces as well finally getting an opportunity to clear the air with Liberty.

"I wish her and all of the other Islanders the very best and will be cheering them all on from home."

At the end of Wednesday night's (17.01.24) episode, it was revealed series one original Joshua Ritchie - an ex of current Islander Georgia Harrison, and 'Geordie Shore' star Charlotte Crosby - will be the next bombshell to enter the villa on Thursday night (18.01.24).

He said: "If somebody's in a couple it definitely will not stop me. I always get what I want."

'Love Island: All Stars' continues at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX, and airs in Ireland on Virgin Media Two and Virgin Media Player.
