Although Love Island’s Liberty Poole isn’t going into the Majorcan villa with the intention of having sex on TV, she isn’t ruling it out.
The 21-year-old student and waitress from Birmingham is one of the 11 singletons confirmed to be appearing on the ITV2 dating show, which launches on Monday night.
‘I’m not looking to have sex on TV,’ Liberty told Metro.co.uk. ‘However, if you meet someone and it’s the natural next step in the relationship I wouldn’t completely rule it out.’
She continued: ‘I think the most important thing is doing the Love Island experience with no regrets.’
Liberty enthused that her family and friends are fully behind her appearance on the programme.
‘My mum and my step-dad have been so supportive of me. My mum was actually more excited than me. I just think she can’t wait to see me on the show. She’s a big personality herself, so I think she’s just excited.
‘My mum’s like my best friend so I think they know what my personality is like and they know I’m a big character.’
Liberty is set to join the likes of Love Island’s first disabled contestant Hugo Hammond and former model Shannon Singh when she enters the villa in just a few days.
Presenter Laura Whitmore, 36, will be returning to host the show and will be joined by her partner Iain Stirling, 33, who narrates the series.
The new edition comes as ITV announced brand new duty of care protocols following the intense scrutiny surrounding the deaths of former Love Island contestants Sophie Gradon and Mike Thalassitis.
Islanders will now be offered therapy sessions, social media and financial management training, mental and physical health screenings, alongside extensive aftercare following their stint in the villa.
Love Island kicks off Monday 28th June on ITV2.
