Love Island’s Jake Cornish reveals struggle with fame: ‘I wish people would not know me’
Former Love Island star Jake Cornish has opened up about his struggle with fame after the show and said he sometimes wishes he wasn't recognised.
Jake, appeared on Love Island in 2021, and was coupled up with Liberty Poole.
Although the two went their separate ways for a while, they soon reconnected and coupled up again.
However, just three days before the final,Liberty dumped Jake and they dramatically quit the show.
Speaking to The Sun, Jake said: "It’s nice being in the limelight and people speaking to you and that kind of thing but sometimes you do think ‘I wish people would just not know me' so you could just relax."
Since leaving the villa, Jake has opened up three businesses – a bed and mattress company, an outdoor furniture company and promotions company too.
However, he is due to return to our TV screens soon as he teased: "You’ll see me again soon on your TV. It’s different. But no comment on what it’s going to be just yet."
Jake also told the publication that he is still in touch with other islanders from the show, but also said that he has not spoken to Liberty since they gave their relationship another try after leaving the villa.
Jake is not the only Love Islander who has struggled with fame since coming back from the villa, with many Islanders returning to their pre-villa careers.
Tyler Cruickshank, who was in the villa alongside Jake, has returned to his goal of working in law, as he used the money he got from being on the show to do a postgraduate legal course.
He told OK!: “I went to university to study law with the intention of becoming a commercial lawyer. However, after graduating I didn’t have the resources to continue studying so I became an estate agent. I made decent money, but it wasn’t what I wanted to do.
"I remember my parents offering to pay for my postgraduate course, but I didn’t want to take their money. Then Love Island came calling and put me in a position that allowed me to continue my legal studies. Not many people talk about how expensive it is to become a solicitor."
He continued: "In August , I enrolled on a Solicitors Qualifying Exam course and I’ll be qualified in two years. I graduated in 2018, so going from working a 9-5 to revising for exams was a huge adjustment.
"People are shocked when they find out about my interest in law. I went to a legal event this year where a lot of people assumed that I was there as a celebrity guest, rather than a student."
He added: "For me, law has always been the long term goal. It’s a sustainable career that I can imagine myself enjoying in 10 years time."
