Liberty Poole says she’s not watched Love Island back as she knows ‘how it felt’

Love Island star Liberty Poole has revealed she’s yet to watch back her time in the famous villa as she knows ‘how it felt’ when she was in there.

Speaking exclusively to OK! about her experience on the popular ITV2 show, including how she famously walked out days before the final, Liberty, 21, said: “I’ve watched bits here and there, but I haven't watched the show back.”

The former Nandos actress from Birmingham, who split from ex-boyfriend Jake Cornish on the show, went on to say: “I haven't really had the time to sit down and watch it all back. Maybe one day, but not right now.”

Opening up about why she doesn’t feel the need to relive her time by binge-watching the show, Liberty explained: “Obviously I had my experience in there. I know how it felt throughout the whole thing.”

Elsewhere in our chat, Liberty confessed that she wouldn’t change anything about her experience on the reality show – even the heartbreak and ups and downs.

She said: “It’s a shame that it didn’t work out the way I wanted it to, but I truly believe everything happens for a reason.”

Liberty added: “I wouldn’t say I went in as a different person, because I was myself all the way through, but I definitely think I’m stronger because of what happened.”

And since leaving the show, single Liberty is concentrating on herself and her happiness, rather than looking for love.

She said: “I’m happy being single, to be honest. I think I went into Love Island looking for love, thinking that’s what I needed.”

“And then I found something better. There’s not a lot going on in the love life department. I’m quite busy at the moment so I don’t really have much time.”

She added: “But I also feel like I’m not ready, either, because I’m just so focused on myself that I don’t want any distractions from my happiness. So maybe in the future, but it’s not the right time.”

In the meantime, the reality star is preoccupied with her exciting new TV project – as a contestant on this year’s Dancing on Ice.

Speaking about joining the show that she watched with her mum when she was growing up, Liberty told us: “I actually sort of manifested it. My management said, ‘if there's one thing that you wanted to do, what is it?’ And I wrote down Dancing on Ice.”

“So I feel like it was meant to be. Then I got the call on my birthday, I was so excited. As a kid growing up watching the show, you never think that one day you're going to be on it.”
