LOVE Island star Jake Cornish has revealed his ‘pinch moment’ after launching his new venture.
The Weston Super Mare hunk was on course to win the series last year but parted ways with Liberty Poole – then quit the series in sensational fashion days before the final.
Jake has been transplanting since leaving the Mallorca villa and has previously told how he taught high energy exercise classes in Somerset.
Yet he has now completely changed course, posing as “the rattan man” as he sells his own range of luxury garden furniture.
He added his Instagram handle “TheRattanMan” which showcases his range of “luxurious outdoor furniture, sofas, rugs and beds at the lowest prices”.
On his personal page, Jake shared an image showing him perched on a gray sofa in the middle of a huge warehouse.
In the caption, he gushed: “PINCH ME MOMENT 😁
“So for months I’ve been working really hard on a business that I’m absolutely overwhelmed to have managed to complete with hundreds of actions to keep you going.
“Long hard days, stress, a few bumps in the road but finally we are here and ready to equip your homes for you 😁
“Loans and lots of deals I have for you guys for this weekend ONLY. Any product you are unsure of or unsure of the size, please send a message to @therattanman.”
He then added a discount code for fans before dubbing himself: “Jakey The Rattan Man”.
The former water engineer, unlike most actors, has largely shunned the celebrity circuit, preferring to say in the South West.
Jake once visited the water plant where he once worked as an engineer before leaving to appear on Love Island.
“The treatment is working. I miss this place, I’m telling you. I used to maintain them all the time, those showers, I did a little plumbing on them.”
He also posed alongside his former co-worker, writing, “Dream Team back together. 1 day and 1 day only.”
