Liberty Pool's mum Jo has admitted she initially had some concerns about her daughter going on Love Island, but she's been reassured by the support she's been getting from ITV.
The blonde beauty found herself at the centre of social media outrage after it emerged she was not angry when her partner Jake Cornish snogged fellow Islander Kaz Kamwi during a challenge.
However, while she may be gracing the screens of millions of people per day, it appears that her mum is appreciative of the support she is receiving.
In a new interview, Liberty's mum Jo revealed bosses from ITV are frequently getting in touch with the family to offer support.

Speaking about her initial doubts, Jo told New magazine: "I believe it's natural as a parent to be concerned each time your child experiences something new – whatever that may be."
However, she went on to add: "The ITV2 team are constantly in touch with us as a family and their support has been second to none."
Since Liberty entered the Majorca villa with the hopes of looking for love, she has seen her social media followers rocket.
With Liberty's newfound fame comes a loyal fan base, including some of the biggest stars in Hollywood – something that Jo could not believe.
Since entering the villa, Liberty has had support from Wolf of Wall Street actress, Margot Robbie who she "adores".

Jo said: "I know it will be a special moment when she hears that Margot Robbie is rooting for her to win,
"Libby genuinely adores her."
She joked: "I may tell her Mr Bean got in touch instead to keep her grounded!"
Addressing the conflict that Islanders often face during recoupling, Jo says that Liberty will remain focused on "the positives in life, whatever comes her way".
Monday night's episode of the ITV2 programme certainly caused quite a stir on social media after the show teased a clip of Liberty.

Viewers were shocked to see much more tamed scenes as drama stirred up in the villa thanks to a challenge – or at least it was meant to.
The teaser clip saw Jake snog Kaz during Snog, Marry or Pie, but the teaser clip that promised "drama| saw Liberty look perplexed at his actions.
Fans who were expecting fiery confrontation instantly took to social media to air their thoughts.
"The producers screwed Jake, Liberty & Kaz for the last 24 hours. There was nothing in that & nobody was offended," said one.
While a second added: "So the producers lied about this Liberty and Kaz beef. Not impressed."
Before a third tweeted: "As if they edited the first look to make it look like Liberty was so p**sed at Jake kissing Kaz."
Love Island airs daily at 9pm on ITV2 and on the ITVHub.
