Love Island'sKaz Kamwi has revealed that she had the "utmost respect" for Liberty Poole when she decided to leave the villa.
Stunning influencer Kaz recently placed fourth in the grand final of the ITV dating show on Monday, alongside her newly-exclusive partner Tyler Cruikshank.
Speaking out in her exit interview, fashion blogger Kaz opened up about her special friendship with Liberty, and Liberty's emotional break up with her ex-boyfriend Jake Cornish which took place just days before the final.
Kaz started off by saying that she clicked with Liberty from the "very first day", and that their friendship blossomed right from the beginning of the series as they walked in together.
Kaz told ITV: "Liberty and I clicked from the very first day.
"We walked in together and our friendship blossomed from there. I feel like our friendship formed the minute we held hands and walked in."
Discussing Liberty's break up with Jake, Kaz stated that it "broke her heart", knowing that she never found a special connection that she deserves.
However, when Liberty decided to walk away from the show, Kaz said she had "nothing but the utmost respect for her".
She went on: "When she explained to me the situation and how she felt, honestly I had nothing but the utmost respect for her because it takes a lot to admit your feelings and be really set in a decision like that, especially so close to the Final.
"She is so genuine. It broke my heart knowing she never found that special connection that I think she deserves.
"I was trying to be strong when she was leaving but when we went to terrace and I was in tears.
"Overall, I am proud of her and she stood her ground and followed her gut and trusted her intuition. She is very strong-minded and independent and it seeps through. She is one of the most selfless people I have ever met and she deserves so much love.
Jake and Liberty coupled up at the very beginning of the show and became an official couple soon after, but the pair ran into a number of issues following the Movie Night challenge.
Liberty had seen Jake initially admit that he didn't want to "rip her clothes off", and she later doubted his feelings for her, feeling like she was annoying him.

The pair both admitted that the "energy" was off between the two, and they subsequently split in front of the cameras, making the decision to walk out of the villa together before the final.
Later in the interview, Kaz and Tyler were asked how they felt about Liam Reardon and Millie Court being crowned the winners of the show.
Kaz answered: "We love Milliam!" Tyler added: "We were not surprised! We love Milliam, they are one in a Milliam.
"I was so happy and excited – I couldn’t contain myself, I was hugging Liam so tight!
"They really deserve it, they have been through so much. They were made for each other."
