Speaking to The Sun, the 22-year-old said he no longer planned to speak to Jake and addressed the backlash his co-star has received for his treatment of ex-girlfriend Liberty Poole on the show.

"Jake is a difficult one," he said. "I think he’s gone through a lot since coming out. People come out to a positive or a negative reaction and I think he’s come out to a more negative side.

“I think it’s been tough mentally for him to deal with that because he’s such a positive person.

"He's always so bubbly, but then had people bringing him down. I think he's dealt with that now."

Toby said he wasn't planning on remaining friends with Jake and revealed that he more than likely wasn't going to chat to him in the future.

"Unfortunately that's life. You meet 30 people and you're not going to be friends with all 30 are you? He's a nice guy, I just don't want to put too much pressure on something."

Toby's revelations come after Jake revealed last week that he is no longer in contact with the Love Island girls.

“I don’t speak to any of the girls. I think I’m a lone wolf on that side," he said. "They’re there and I’ve just gone this way. Everyone's in a group chat but the group chat is no longer.”

Jake made a dramatic exit from the show following his break-up with Liberty. He was heavily criticised by fans for gaslighting her, following a challenge where clips of him expressing doubts about his sexual attraction to her were aired. He was also shown encouraging the rest of the boys to cheat on their partners in Casa Amor.
