Love Island 2021 star Liberty Poole's split from her on screen boyfriend Jake Cornish four days before the final and it was a cultural moment. She chose herself over a hopeless romance and it reminded us all to never settle for less that we're worth.

Now, months on, Liberty has even poked fun at her doomed romance in a series of TikToks with her fellow Islander Lucinda Strafford.

First up, Liberty mimed to herself saying "And then he goes, I do love you", as she and Lucinda dance along and caption the vid, "When he confesses his love two weeks before Marbella."

The pair COULD be referring to the moment Jake told Liberty he loved her in the series. The shade.

The second TikTok saw Liberty mime the phrase again alongside her pal, with the caption, "Know your worth, sis 🚩."

This isn't the first time Liberty has teased that she's moved on from Jake. In March, Liberty was said to be secretly dating a "mystery man."

A source close to Liberty told The Sun, "She has been seeing him for nearly a month.

"They’ve been on a few dates. It’s early days but they get on really well, and Liberty seems pretty smitten."

From the looks of those TikTok videos, though, it looks like Liberty isn't settling for second best.

Liberty has made it clear that she has very high expectations when it comes to love. Talking exclusively to heat after leaving Love Island, she said, "I'm not really focusing on guys.

"People saying that I've inspired them after they've seen my journey means a lot more than guys just sliding in my DMS. I really want to focus on myself and what I am doing, that's my main priority at the moment."

Jake recently revealed that although things had ended pretty badly on the show, they attempted to give things another go once they had left the villa.

Talking to The Sun he said, "We were both stressed towards the end. You are missing home and you can’t clear your head. And Lib had 14 different people in the villa saying different things about me.

"In the real world you would sort out your problems, but we were in a bubble, constantly being watched. It is intense. The break-up was very different on TV to how it was in person. We had a conversation and a kiss and made up, but only part of that conversation was on telly."
