Lillie Haynes says Jack Barlow relationship wasnt meant to be’ and confirms split
Lille Haynes has revealed to OK! what her post-Love Island dating life has been like – opening up on her split from one of her co-stars.
Geordie Lillie failed to find love in the Love Island villa this year, but sparks did fly between her and fellow islander Jack Barlow after the show ended. However, she's now told us that things between them have fizzled out.
Lillie ruffled feathers in Casa Amor after setting her sights on Welshman Liam Reardon who, despite having a “connection” with Lillie, returned back to the villa alone to be with his now-girlfriend Millie Court.
Lillie didn’t let Liam get away easily, however, and 'fessed up to Millie in front of all the other islanders that Liam hadn’t been perfect while on a “lads holiday” in Casa Amor, and revealed that the pair had kissed a handful of times.

The incident was a huge bump in the road for Millie and Liam, but they managed to iron things out and went on to win the show together, taking home a whopping £50,000 between them.
Someone else to have entered the villa at the same time as Lillie was 26 year old Jack Barlow, but he and Lillie didn’t properly cross paths until after the show ended.
Those who weren’t picked after Casa Amor were kept in casting holiday for a couple of days, and it was here Lillie found that the pair had “so much in common”.
Lille told OK!: “It all kind of started from there, and we dated a bit back home.”
Jack and Lillie were spotted holding hands on a night outin Manchester in late August, with sources at the time saying they “fancied the pants off each other”.
However, Lillie and Jack’s busy schedules ended up getting in the way, as well as the distance as Lillie lives in Newcastle, while Jack lives in Sussex.
Lillie explained: “I'm like the most North you can possibly get, and he lives as far down South as you could possibly get, so… everyone’s so busy and it’s hard to maintain relationships, and I think when you go through something so big because we all had such a big summer, it’s just kind of nice to breathe a bit.”
“He’s a lovely boy, I couldn’t fault him,” the 22 year old said of Jack. “It’s a shame, but it wasn’t meant to be.”
In the wake of her split from Jack, Lillie confirmed to OK! that she’s currently single and joked that her DMs are “pretty dry”.
As to what she’s looking for in a guy, she described herself as being “really fussy” and that she has “high expectations”.
“I have a lot of boxes that need ticking,” Lillie said. “I like someone that’s really passionate and driven, so they’ll wake up everyday with goals in mind and to achieve them.”
“I need someone that will really put the effort in and be a soppy romantic. I just expect a lot.”
