Love Island’s new hunky Scottish bombshell is the famous football captain’s grandson
LOVE ISLAND’s newest bombshell candidate has a famous football grandfather.
The Scottish hunk sent shockwaves through Love Island after being drafted into the end of tonight’s episode.
And it turns out Gemma Owen isn’t the only islander with a famous parent – with newcomer Jay Younger also having a football background.
The 28-year-old Edinburgh investment banker’s grandfather was Tommy Younger, a Scottish international goalkeeper who led his country and enjoyed a stellar career with Hibs, Liverpool and Leeds during his playing days from 1948 to 1963.
Jay Younger believes he’s the type of every woman on paper and hopes to find true love under the Spanish sun.
Jay, who studied economics and finance at Heriot-Watt University, said, “I think I really have what most women want.
“I have a good job, I think I’m a good looking boy and I have a lot of fun, so I feel like I could add a lot of value to their life if they add a lot of value to mine. .”
Jay walked into the villa tonight alongside Remi Lambert, a 22-year-old model from Manchester who was inspired by the success story of former contestants Molly Mae Hague and Tommy Fury.
During his college years, Jay competed in bodybuilding competitions and clearly valued fitness.
