CELEBRITY LOVE ISLAND: ABI'S FAKE; Jayne's last day bid to burst rival's bubble in fight for Lee.
THE Love Island war over Lee Sharpe raged on yesterday as Jayne Middlemiss branded rival Abi Titmuss "a fake".
The Geordie TV presenter laid into evicted Abi over her treatment of "brother" Lee, saying: "I think she's fake, thorny and I just don't f****** believe it. I don't think she knows herself that well. I think she is very confused."
Jayne, knocked back by Lee at the start of the ITV1 series, admitted in the Beach Hut she was worried about his reaction to her showdown with Abi, in which she accused the glamour girl of "using" the ex-footballer in a bid to win the show.
Yesterday, on the final day in the resort, Jayne said: "He might have thought I'd overstepped the mark. I was very unsure about who Abi was and what the hell was going on.
"Time will tell. I know what I believe and I don't believe it. I believe she was doing what she thought people wanted to see.
"She's messing with my brother. Lee has to find it out for himself and he will."
Lee has admitted he felt "really good" after hearing Jayne had told Abi off for using him.
He said: "I am getting goose pimples just thinking about it. She is like a sister. It's good to know someone like Jayne is looking out for you.
"I was shocked and surprised. To have spent five weeks with someone and to have got so close to them that they felt the need to look after me was nice.
"She had my best interests at heart. It's really touching.
"It was a really nice thought. I would pick her in my football team. She would be a midfielder, a little ratter kicking everyone and protecting everyone on her team. She'd be all over the pitch making sure everyone is all right."
In a thinly veiled warning to Abi, Lee said: "I don't think many girls would mess around with Jayne."
Lee and Abi spent weeks kissing and whispering sweet nothings. But by yesterday the romance seemed to be over - for Lee at least. He said: "Maybe when I get out I'll ask Abi what happened. It's all done and dusted now. I said to Jayne, 'I am a big boy and can look after myself', but it's always nice to have someone like her in your corner."
Lee plans to meet and hug Abi. He did admit: "I've missed her. I'm looking forward to having a drink with her without cameras and microphones. It's a weird place to be at the moment. She was good fun to knock around with."
But he downplayed the passion, saying of their first kiss: "We were both drunk so she might not even remember it."
And in a huge snub, he said the best thing about the show was his friendships with the other girls.
He said: "I walked in and didn't know anyone, and now have true friends.
"Liz and Jayne are like my sisters."
Lee has warmed to Jayne since her revelations after Abi's exit.
He said: "After the first week it was clear we got on and we had a lot in common but after the second week it took a backward step. We had the boat trip to sort things out.
"The friendship was getting stronger and we have really bonded on another level. Hopefully we will be friends for ever.
"Jayne calls me a brother and she is like a sister.
"We look out for each other, we're close and we trust each other."
Of his time in the Love Shack with Abi, he said: "It was slightly different but equally as good."
For her part, Jayne is still attracted to Lee. She said: "He's a top bloke and I one hundred per cent adore him.
"I do think I've found love on Celebrity Love Island. I've found love with people I will always want in my life. I am really, really happy."
She also admitted she feels responsible for Paul Danan' sordid toilet incident with Playboy model Nikki Ziering. She confessed: "I was frisky as a pony and told him he had two days and I bet him he couldn't do anything.
"I laid down the challenge, taking the p***, not thinking for a moment. Half an hour later it backfired on me, big time. Major mistake. Never dare a fool. I was quite horrified by the results."
