Love Island’s Liberty Poole’s heartbreak as cruel trolls say she has ‘big tummy’


Liberty Poole has revealed that she still faces an onslaught of bullying from internet trolls a year on from her time on the hit ITV dating show Love Island.

The 23 year old, who recently teased a possible Celebs Go Dating appearance, told The Sun: “I still get trolling to this day. I posted on TikTok the other night and I still get trolling where people say I’ve got a big tummy.”

The star revealed that although “you still get insecurities” she tries her best not to let the trolling influence her and added that “you’ve got to believe in yourself.”

Liberty went on to say that she’s “not going to let anyone make her feel sad” and that she hopes to use her platform to help young girls feel confident.

It comes as the reality star recently revealed she was "verbally abused" in October 2022 at Birmingham Airport by a group of travellers, who she said were on a “messy stag do”. The star said they accused her of being a “catfish” and began following her through the airport.

Unfortunately, the men were sharing a flight with Liberty and were “sat not too far behind.”

According to Liberty, they were even so brazen as to tell the air hostess what they had said “like it was something to be proud of.”

On her Instagram stories, a bare-faced Liberty explained that she had ditched the fake tan and make-up for her flight and said that she “got penalised for it.”

She continued: “you're not always going to be on top form, you do have your down days, look, I've got a spot that I've not covered up – I'm unfiltered. I haven't fake tanned yet and this is me.

"This is the stripped back version of me and I'm not ashamed and I'm not going to be made to feel ashamed.”

The blonde made her name on the 2021 series of Love Island and has since appeared on Dancing on Ice and amassed an impressive 1.4 million Instagram followers.

Liberty partnered up on day one of Love Island with water engineer Jake Cornish, who she stayed with throughout her time on the show.

However, it wasn’t exactly smooth-sailing for the pair, who became boyfriend and girlfriend just days before deciding to split and leave the villa ahead of the final when Liberty said she suspected he had a “game plan” with her.

Despite revealing in the reunion episode a few weeks later that she’d been in contact with ex Jake, the two were unable to resolve their differences.

Liberty has since shared that she is now single and isn’t busy searching for a new man.

She said: “At the moment I’m open to dating, but I’m not looking for it – if it finds me, it finds me.”
