It’s been two months since the latest series of Love Island came to an end but the drama from the villa still rumbles on amid Jake Cornish’s rumoured feud with the female Islanders.

Jake, who quit the ITV2 show after splitting from Liberty Poole, previously admitted that he’s no longer in contact with the girls and explained, “I don’t speak to any of the girls. I think I’m a lone wolf that side. They’re there and I’ve just gone this way.”

Although Chloe Burrows insisted there’s “no bad blood” between Jake and the girls earlier this week, Sharon Gaffka has now opened up about the row and admitted there is a “rift” between some of the Islanders.

She said, “It is hard because I want to be friends with everybody, but not everybody is friends with everybody since they left.

“I feel like I am playing mum and trying to keep the peace with certain people, but it is really nice to see him [Jake] out and about and to know he still has friends from the villa."

Sharon also addressed Jake’s absence from the Love Island reunion after fans speculated he swerved the show on purpose, despite Laura Whitmore telling viewers he was ill.

“I was a bit concerned [that] because Jake was unwell people would misconstrue his absence,” she added to the Mirror.

“I obviously was not there for quite a lot of the show where people were making comments about his behaviour, and I am fully aware that things can get lost in translation when it comes to cutting and editing the show. So I try not to make too many assumptions on anyone’s behaviour on the show when I wasn’t there to see it, and that goes for every Islander."

Sharon’s comments come after fellow Islander Chloe Burrows had her say on the rumoured ‘feud’ between Jake and the girls, as she revealed that she’s still pals with the former water engineer.

Chloe told Metro, “I mean I literally got a message off him this morning so it’s definitely not me. There’s a big WhatsApp group but I don’t think people use it. I just feel like there were closer friendships in the villa and stuff which have stayed on the outside, but as far as I know, there’s no bad blood between anyone.

“I’ve literally messaged him this morning. Me and Jake are cool.”

She added, “I feel like everyone could see in the villa who my really close friends are, Millie, Lucinda, Liam. I feel like they are who I’ve seen quite a lot on the outside of the villa. Everyone, even if you weren’t in at the same time, because you all share this crazy experience, you will easily get along with people. I know there’s friendships that have happened on the back of the show, but it does make sense.”
