Fast forward 12 months on and the Dancing on Ice star admitted that she’s looking for love again.
A fan asked the blonde bombshell if she was in a relationship – but the star confessed that men never “properly fall in love” with her.
The Brummie star said: “This is going to be an interesting one because the guys I go for, it never works out.
“I just don’t think they properly fall in love with me or anything…it’s not a sob sorry or whatever.”

Liberty then called on her granddad for some advice and asked what type of guy would suit her.
He sweetly replied: “A real man who supports a good football team, who will treat her well.”
Liberty interjected: “What’s a good football team?”
Her granddad hilariously responded: “There’s only one team…Aston Villa.”

Busting in laughter, she added: “Basically if you support Aston Villa, you’d be alright according to my gramps.”
After Liberty and Jake quit the villa, the blonde babe refused to rule out claims her ex was “playing a game” in the villa after he was slammed by furious fans.
The former Nandos waitress has admitted that she doesn’t know if he had a “game plan” when he coupled up with her.
Viewers accused Jake of sticking with the blonde beauty to guarantee a place in the final — given her immense popularity.
But asked if she thought fans’ concerns were correct, Liberty exclusively told The Sun: “I think only Jake can answer that question, it’s hard to comment on what people are seeing, and you guys are seeing it from an outside perspective, whereas I was in the relationship.
“And obviously when you love someone you don’t think of them playing a game. But only Jake can answer that.”
She added: “I do actually think his feelings were genuine. I think that the connection was genuine, but things went sour. But I do think he
genuinely liked me.
“I just was questioning whether obviously he loved me the way I loved him.”
Tension between the two reached boiling point after the water engineer said that she gave her the “ick” because their sleeping area was messy.
But despite a seven week romance, and four weeks as official boyfriend and girlfriend, Jake barely put up a fight to save their relationship.
