Jay Younger is part of the next pair of male bombshells heading into the Love Island villa, alongside Remi Lambert.

Love Island 2022 wouldn't be the same without the bombshells entering the villa to try and turn some heads, and Jay is set to do exactly that.

After the explosive entrance of first male bombshell and Gemma Owen's ex Jacques O'Neill, Jay's sudden appearance is bound to cause more drama for the other Islanders. 

With all of the girls now coupled up, who has Jay got his eye on? And what couple could potentially be in jeopardy?

Just like every other Love Island contestant, Jay Younger will be hoping to couple up with his perfect match and maybe even walk away from the show as one of the Love Island winners

Speaking on why he decided to come on Love Island, he said: "I think I am at the point in my life where it would be quite fun to find someone and have fun along the way. And doing it in Mallorca and in the Villa would be a great opportunity, so why not?"
