Jake has been steadily amassing followers since he was announced as one of this year’s Love Islanders and he’s now on 15,000. Jake’s Instagram is pretty typical lad vibes. It features pictures of him with his mates, trips to Ibiza and of course the obligatory gym selfie.

His first Instagram post was all the way back in 2013 and features a much younger looking Jake and his friend. Jake’s Instagram handle is @jakecornish7.

He was in a relationship for seven years before Love Island

It’s not uncommon for Islanders to enter Love Island after a pretty series relationship, and Jake is one of them. He was in a relationship for seven years before the pandemic hit however he and his ex broke up around that time and he’s been single ever since.

Jake describes himself as a water engineer in his Love Island profile and says he’s a “jack of all trades”. He said: “I’m basically a handyman, a jack of all trades just not electrics! I don’t go near electric.”

His nickname is ‘Tigger’

Yes as in Winnie The Pooh. Jake revealed he’s called ‘Tigger’ by his friends and family for all the energy he has. He said: “My family would say I’m the one who is always up for a laugh, always having fun. I don’t take anything seriously. The prankster! My nickname is Tigger from Winnie the Pooh because I’m always bouncing all over the place. I’ve always got so much energy.”

When asked to describe his ideal type Jake said the woman has to have small feet as he has a foot fetish. He said: “My type, all I ask for is blonde, blue eyes, little feet, because I have a massive foot fetish.” Jake also said one of the major things he looks for is trust as he’s received messages from women who have partners.

He said: “I’ve had messages from girls that have got boyfriends and husbands. This is why I don’t trust anyone. [I want] someone who is loyal really. But when I’m single, I like having a good time!”

Love Island 2021 starts on Monday 28th June on ITV2. For all the latest Love Island news and gossip and for the best memes and quizzes, like The Holy Church of Love Island on Facebook.
