Love Island’s Liberty Poole has opened up about an upsetting experience at the airport, during which she was “verbally abused by a group of lads” for not wearing makeup.

Liberty shared her story on Instagram, explaining: “I went to the airport and I literally went with no lashes, no foundation, I was really stripped back and just me.”

“I was verbally abused by a group of lads in public, shouting at me, ‘You’ve gone down hill since Love Island, you’re such a catfish.’”

“They were going onto the plane and telling members of staff, ‘Have you seen Liberty?’ just because I went to the airport stripped back.”

Liberty also explained why she wanted to share her story, saying: “I want people to know that, social media, you’re going to post your best pictures but you’re not always going to be glam or on top form.

“I’m unfiltered and stripped back and this is me, and I’m not ashamed and I’m not going to be ashamed to be myself.”

The model also revealed that after her flight, fans asked for photos with her, saying they would, “put a filter on her.”

She said: “Thank you to those people that made me feel like s**t and I cried, but I’ll pick myself back up because I’m a boss b****h.”
