Earlier in the day, Jake told the boys on the sun deck his grand plan, stating: 'I think it's maybe time to take the plunge and put a label on it.' 

Then with the help of the islanders, Jake later treated Liberty to her favourite meal of spaghetti bolognaise, while the rest of the housemates helped to provide a special touch to the romantic evening.

While sitting on the beanbags following their meal, Jake then brought out two bracelets, one black and one white, with magnets on them, which symbolised them 'always gravitating towards one another'.

Liberty then told him: 'I've never connected with someone the way I have with you, ever. All cards on the table, I don't think I really knew what love was until I met you', before confirming those three special words.

While Jake then popped the question, saying: 'I feel like I've found the one. Will you be my girlfriend?' 

The romantic scenes left viewers at home reaching for the tissues, with many turning to Twitter to expresse their emotions over the moment.

Sharing their thoughts, some viewers seemed to think Jake wasn't to be trusted while another feared for their future amid the upcoming Casa Amor twist. 

'So wait , Jake hasn’t said “I love you “ to Liberty yet Ahhh what a mess' commented one.

'Liberty said I love you three times to jake and he didn’t even acknowledge it, casa amor ain’t looking good', predicted a further viewer.

A third fumed: 'Doing up gf proposal with bracelet and dress code but cannot say i love you?? oh he’s game playing your honour.'

'It was all going amazing untill Lib said i love you and he never said it back', tweeted a fourth.

With another writing: 'I can't be the only one who still doesn't trust Jake 100%. He made a comment about how he wasnt sexually attracted to Liberty and didn't wanna rip her clothes off and also avoided saying I love you back to her. I'm just not sure about him.'

Meanwhile, other eagle-eyed viewers were quick to notice that Jake's proposal appeared to be very similar to Kem Cetinay popping the question to then-partner Amber Davies in 2017.

In series 3, Kem was seen presenting Amber with an infinitely bracelet, which symbolises eternal love, with the hairdresser wearing a matching green one to her pink.

He told her at the time: 'So now you know, that when you wear it, I'm always looking out for you in here, because I am, and in general I'm always looking out for you, and I'm always going to have your back.'

Copycat? Meanwhile, other eagle-eyed viewers were quick to notice that Jake's proposal appeared to be very similar to Kem Cetinay popping the question to then-partner Amber Davies in 2017

And Love Island viewers voiced their opinion that Jake's gesture was all-too similar to when Kem asked Amber to be his girlfriend.

'Is it just me did Kem not do the bracelet thing to Amber 4 years ago?' said one, as another observed: 'Jake pulled a Kem with that move'.

'Nah Jake has stole Kem’s game with the bracelet … Liam & Millie for the win the now very understated' stated a third watcher.
