LOVE Island star Jake Cornish has sparked rift rumours after he was missing from nights out in London with his co-stars.
The reality TV star hasn't appeared in any of the social media snaps or videos from other members of the cast in recent weeks.
Water engineer Jake, 24, was even missing from the official ITV2 reunion show on Sunday night, telling fans he was too unwell to go.
Viewers had been excited to see him reunited with ex-girlfriend Liberty Poole following their dramatic split just days before the final last month.
However, host Laura Whitmore was forced to explain that the Weston-Super-Mare native was unable to attend the event due to illness.
"Jake can't be with us as he isn't feeling well this evening," she told viewers at home – who weren't buying the excuses for his no-show.
Many fans suspected that he had feigned being unwell in order to avoid any awkward reunion with Liberty, and the rest of the cast too.
"Jake didn't want to face the music," one viewer wrote to Twitter, as a second agreed: "Jake isn't at the reunion? How convenient."
After the ITV2 show – the remainder of the cast got together in London for a number of after parties, all of which Jake was missing from.
Since the dating show wrapped up, the finalists were reunited for a boozy night out, and have also come together to celebrate Liberty's birthday.
Winners Millie Court & Liam Reardon were seen meeting up with Chloe Burrows & Toby Amorolaran, and commenting on each others' social media pages.
The remainder of the cast have also been liking each others' posts – while Jake has remained unnaturally quiet and kept to himself.
At ex-girlfriend Liberty Poole's birthday bash last Thursday, many of the islanders re-appeared including Lucinda Strafford and Kaz Kamwi.
Others also wished the 22-year-old a 'happy birthday' on her special day – but Jake once again remained radio silent as he stayed home with family.
It appears the only housemate Jake has stayed in contact with is Tyler Cruikshank, who met up with a group of the boys for brunch.
The Croydon-based estate agent reposted a snap of Jake dining alongside him in Five Guys, writing: "Catching up with my bro."
Arriving back in the UK in August, Jake revealed that his priorities were firmly set in catching up with his friends and family.
He explained that he was not looking for a relationship as he caught up on what had been going on at home in the last two months.
Love Island fans were furious earlier this week as Jake told Liberty he was "too busy" to pursue a relationship outside the villa.
The pair arranged to meet at a rooftop bar in London as part of the reunion show, with Kaz joining Liberty for support.
When Jake arrived she left them to it, but Liberty immediately confronted Jake about him not being in contact with her since leaving the villa.
"It’s hard, obviously I still have feelings for you," admitted Liberty. "I just feel like there hasn’t been an effort to make it work properly."
Liberty looked gutted as Jake said he'd rather they didn't meet up and wanted them to be "separate" adding that he was "so busy".
He concluded, much to the anger of fans at home: "Even if we had been together it wouldn’t have worked, I’m too busy."
One said: "Then why go on love island in the first place if your too busy to have a girlfriend? You’ve just proved you were fake all along."
