What is Jake Cornish looking for in a partner on Love Island?

When it comes to finding love this summer, Jake has admitted that he is looking for someone honest and loyal... "For me, the main thing is having respect and having good fun, and someone who will be loyal to you. 

"I’ve had messages from girls that have got boyfriends and husbands. This is why I don’t trust anyone. Someone who is loyal really. But when I’m single, I like having a good time!"

Jake also admits he is usually drawn to blondes... "Looks-wise, I have always gone for blondes. My ideal woman is Billie Faiers. She is my dream woman. I think for a laugh once with the boys, I messaged her. I can’t remember what I messaged her. She’s a lady, she’s just lush."

Love Island starts at 9pm on Monday 28 June on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
