Love Island’s West Country boy Jake Cornish stole the heart of Liberty Poole, 21, when he entered the villa last month, displaying toned abs, a crisp tan and tattoos impressive.
But the hunk of Weston-super-Mare hasn’t been bearded and inked for long. In fact, you might not recognize the 24-year-old in any snapshots dug up from his teenage years.
Posing during his school days at Wells Blue School, Jake can be seen looking cut with his hair slicked back as he poses with friends before a night out.

It’s clear that Jake has always been a party animal, documenting his guys’ vacations in Malia when he was 18.
Jake sports a piercing and snapback as he poses for a selfie in his hotel room.
And it looks like Jake got a tattoo and grew a beard in 2016, as he poses next to a friend in a “to-do” that feels a little more familiar.
Festival enthusiast Jake was also lucky enough to attend Glastonbury and Love Saves the Day.
In fact, one of his first uploads shows the Water Engineer posing next to Wayne Rooney in front of a tent at the Glastonbury Festival.
Baby-faced Jake was only 14 in the photo but clearly still had a sense of style.
Speaking to the MailOnline, a former school pal shared how Jake got the title of next Joey Essex thanks to his beautiful features.
They said, “‘He was, even at that age, obsessed with his looks and mimicked Joey’s style even then. He was a very pretty boy.
“It’s no surprise that he ended up on Love Island because he fits there perfectly.”
Jake and Liberty’s relationship blossomed in the series, with the blonde beauty admitting that she has “the feelings” for Jake.
Jake was loyal to Liberty in the recoupling, but dumped candidate Chuggs said in an interview that Jake has a “wandering eye” and is waiting for the next bombshell.
It comes as another blonde bombshell entered the villa last night.
Andrea-Jane Bunker, 28, from Hertfordshire turned heads as she teased Teddy and Faye in tonight’s episode.
Love Island continues tonight at 9 p.m. on ITV2 and ITV Hub. The episodes are available the next morning on BritBox
