Love Island ’s Liberty Poole sparked rumours of a rift as she partied away from her fellow Islanders at the ITV Palooza.
The 22-year-old looked sensational as she attended the bash with her Dancing On Ice partner Joe Johnson, and rocked the red carpet in a figure-hugging embellished black dress that featured a dramatic sequinned train.
She shared clips and snaps on her Instagram Stories ahead of the star-studded bash on Tuesday at the Royal Festival Hall in London, but it was one video she shared that suggested she might be avoiding her former friends.
Posting a short clip of the crowded dance floor, Liberty stood away from her fellow Love Island stars, including Chloe Burrows and Toby Aromolaran.
Chloe shared videos and pictures to her Instagram Stories, which revealed she was near the front of the stage dancing along in the crowd at a distance from Love Island winners Liam Reardon and Millie Court.

The reality stars were seen sipping drinks and dancing at the bash, which was also attended by Kaz Kamwi and her boyfriend Tyler Cruickshank.
Some of Liberty’s fans have suggested it was her extravagant gown that prevented her from getting in on the action with her friends, as she struggled with maneuvering herself in the dress on the red carpet.
The former Nando's waitress shared a funny clip on her Instagram Stories as she got her feet stuck in the train of her glitzy floor-length frock, prompting Dancing on Ice pro Joe to help her out.
“Behind the scenes, what would I do without you?” she wrote atop the video.

Later in the clip, she can be seen holding hands with Joe as he tries to help her walk gracefully into the bash.
“Are you ready?” he can be heard asking Liberty, as she kicks out her feet to get the bottom of her dress in place.
A rep for Liberty has yet to comment.
During her time on the ITV2 dating show, viewers wondered if Liberty wasn’t as close with some of the Islanders, including Millie.
When Liberty had a spat with Jake, which began the downfall of their relationship, Millie didn’t comfort the former waitress, and instead looked on as she cuddled up to beau Liam, leaving Faye to sprint over and console Liberty instead.

Rumours have swirled the contestants since leaving the villa, with speculation that there has been a rift between some of the finalists from this year’s series.
Jake revealed he was no longer on speaking terms with some of the girls after he and Liberty split just days before the final, while Faye has been at the centre of reports of a rift, as she hinted at “broken friendships” during a Q&A on her Instagram Stories.
But Chloe dismissed the rumours, and said that they all have a big WhatsApp group “but I don’t think people use it”.
“I just feel like there were closer friendships in the villa and stuff which have stayed on the outside, but as far as I know, there’s no bad blood between anyone,” she told Metro.
