Love Island 2021 hunk Jake Cornish once rubbed shoulders with footballer Wayne Rooney.
The recently-announced contestant for the ITV2 dating show shared a throwback snap of himself and Wayne on his Instagram.
Water engineer Jake can be seen posing next to the Derby County player at Glastonbury Festival from back in the day.
The hunk from Weston-super-Mare uploaded the picture seven years ago and captioned it: "#Throwback #GlastoFest #2011 #Wayne"
A friend of his commented beneath the snap saying "look at that face" followed by some playful emojis.
Jake jokingly responded to it by saying: "Leave it out? This was long ago when I was a chubby mo f***"
It was announced on that the Love Island hopeful would be heading into the villa on the ITV2 show's official account Instagram earlier today.
The account shared a series of moving images of him posing, captioning it: "The blue eyes, the smile, the tattoos… West Country lad Jake ticks a lot of boxes #LoveIsland"
Although Jake himself currently only has just under 5,000 followers, there is no doubt that those figures are about to jump up drastically.
The confident lad has said he is keen to find a girl who looks like former Towie star Billie Faiers.
Talking about the 31-year-old mum-of-two: "My ideal woman is Billie Faiers. She is my dream woman.
"I think for a laugh once with the boys, I messaged her. I can’t remember what I messaged her.
"She’s a lady, she’s just lush."
Prior to taking the first steps in his Love Island journey, he was in long-term relationship for seven years before lockdown took place.
He's told producers he's looking to find someone he can trust and vowed to "take the bull by the horns and go for it".
He shared: "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.
"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!"
