Love Island 2023 LATEST: New bombshells arrive during tense recoupling as fans accuse two islanders of ‘enjoying drama’

Jay Younger claimed producers had heavy involvement

The Scottish hunk, 29, appeared on the show last summer but failed to find a real connection, which he now says is down to bosses getting involved in his decision making.

Speaking to Jim Hamilton on The Big Joe show, he explained:  “I was with a girl called Ekin at the start who went on to win but I wasn’t allowed to go for the girl I wanted to go for at the start, which was Paige.

“There was this moment with Ekin, when the producers finally gave me the green light and said you can move away from Ekin.”

Explaining the situation in more detail, Jay continued:  “I was saying to the producers ‘guys this isn’t who I was originally interested in’. Ekin is amazing but it isn’t who I originally wanted to go for.

“And then the producers were like ‘hold on, hold on, you are going to look disingenuous if you do it this way’, and I was like ‘you guys told me not to go with her’.

“So I was waiting, waiting. The night I was told I could break it off from Ekin, I had an amazing conversation with her and she was so sweet.”
