Love Island’s Jay Younger Thinks He’s The Perfect Catch

The first week of Love Island 2022 has flown by, and fans have already said goodbye to two islanders. But as is a given with every season of the hit ITV2 dating show, no couple is safe as new islanders regularly enter the villa to shake things up. That includes Jay Younger, who was revealed as one of the latest bombshells on June 13. So what will the newest addition bring to the Spanish isle of love? Here’s everything you need to know about Love Island’s Jay Younger.

What Is Jay’s Job?

28-year-old Jay is an investment analyst from Edinburgh. According to The Sun, he studied economics and finance at Herriot-Watt University, graduating with first class honours in 2017. He likes “self sufficiency” in a significant other and is at a point in his life where he wants to find someone to have fun with.

Jay thinks he’s the perfect catch, with everything a girl could want. “I’ve got a good job, I think I am a good looking lad and I have a lot of fun,” he told ITV. Jay feels he “could add a lot of value to their lives if they add a lot of value to mine.”

What Is Jay’s Instagram?

As evidenced by his Instagram, when he’s not crunching numbers Jay’s working out and competing in events like the Turf Games. His over 3,500 followers are regularly treated to shirtless snaps alongside his mates, whether that be in the gym, in competitions, or travelling the world.

Jay also has a claim to fame through his grandad, who played for Liverpool and was the captain of Scotland’s team in the 1950s.

What Else Is There To Know About Jay?

As for what he’ll bring to the villa, Jay says he’ll be “a supportive islander” who will “bring a lot of fun”, “some good laughs,” and “maybe some indecisive decisions”. However, Jay has a very competitive streak and isn’t “afraid to go after a girl” if they happen to be coupled up with someone else. But he’s also a “slow burner” and doesn’t “fall easily”.

Love Island continues tonight at 9 p.m. on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
