The seventh season of Love Island is well and truly underway and one of the hot new contestants is 24-year-old Jake Cornish from Weston-super-Mare.
He's one of the original Islanders along with Sharon Gaffka, Aaron Francis, Liberty Poole, Hugo Hamond, Shannon Singh, Kaz Kamwi, Brad McClelland, Chloe Burrows, Toby Aromolaran, Faye Winter. Late arrivals Liam Reardon and Chuggs Wallis have also joined the lineup.
Here are a few things we know about Jake.
He's a water engineer
Jake's day job is a water engineer, which basically means he's responsible for the supply, management and maintenance of clean water and sewerage/waste water services and preventing flood damage.
His time in the villa could set him on a different career path though, with lots of Islanders going on to earn big money from collaborating with brands with their new found fame.
He was in a relationship for 7 years
Jake was in a serious relationship for seven years, until the pandemic struck and that ended things.
But now he's "ready to take the opportunity by the horns and go for it" with one of the lovely ladies in the villa.
What is Jake's type on paper?
With his celebrity crush being Billie Faiers, Jake usually goes for blondes.
"Looks wise, always gone for blondes. But for me, the main thing is having respect and having good fun, and someone who will be loyal to you," said Jake.
"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!"
Whatever you do Jake, don't ask Georgie Steel if she's loyal - you'll never hear the end of it.
He's a cheeky chappy
Liberty might get her cheeky chappy after all, as Jake's friends and family, who are taking over his social media on his behalf during his time in the villa, describe him as "handsome, charming and ready to find love."
"We guarantee he will entertain you throughout his entire journey in the villa. He's a cheeky one to say the least."
Jake likes to go surfing
Why wouldn't you take advantage of living by the sea?
He's not the first Islander with a love for surfing either. Season 5's Lucie Donlan is a surfer chick.
What is Jake's Instagram?
Jake and his 15,300 Instagram followers can be found at @jakecornish7.
Love Island is on weeknights at 9pm on ITV Hub. The episodes are available to stream on BritBox the following morning.
