Love Island 2022 offered us some truly memorable moments and equally as iconic contestants.

Imagine a world without Ekin-Su Cülcüloğu and Davide Sanclimenti? Not worth thinking about to be honest.

One Islander who was caught up in their enemies to lovers romance was Jay Younger.

Although he didn't find romance amid the drama in the villa, since leaving Love Island Jay has been focusing on himself and is it just us or has it got VERY hot in here?

The ex-Islander is constantly posting gym selfies and training vids on his social media (absolutely NOBODY is complaining about this FYI) but his most recent TikTok has the world in awe.

Jay shared a compilation vid from a competition he recently took part in and he revealed muscles we didn't even know existed.

Fans flocked to the comments section to offer up praise and love for the gym bro, "He’s defo on top 5 best looking men to go on love island" and "This guys physique is insane bro" were just some of the love Jay received.

Another even commented, "Jay could throw a girl around like a feather 😳🫣." Keep it clean please, ladies and gents.

Who is Jay Younger?

Jay was a contestant on season 8 of Love Island and before entering the villa worked as an investment analyst.

How old is Jay Younger?

Jay is 29 years old and is a Scorpio.

Where is Jay Younger from?

Born in Edinburgh, Jay is a true Scotsman.

What does Jay Younger do?

Jay worked in banking before he took part in Love Island, he now focuses on his fitness and is often taking part in cross fit competitions.

When was Jay Younger on Love Island?

Taking part in Love Island 2022, Jay entered the villa on day 12 and was dumped from the show on day 35. He famously had a mini rendezvous with Ekin-Su which led to the notorious crawling across the terrace scene that will truly go down in Love Island history.

Who was Jay Younger coupled up with?

Jay entered the villa and first coupled up with Ekin-Su before moving onto Paige Thorne, Danica Taylor and finally Chyna Mills who he was dumped alongside.

What did Jay Younger say about Love Island?

We've spoken to a fair few dumped Islanders over the years and they all allude to the same thing - that feeling of initial freedom is wild. You get your phone back, you socials back, you can call home, walk around naked in your hotel room and use a loo camera-free. Love Island is a gift to many of these gorgeous humans, but that release must feel like true bliss.

You're also one stepped removed from producers dabbling in every aspect of your life and with your socials now back in your hand, it's all too easy to share Love Island secretswith your loyal followers (who seemed to have popped up over night). Bombshell Jay Younger is a good example of such an Islander; he's back on his socials, away from the cameras and feeling loose-lipped - an attitude we find very attractive at Closer. Who are we kidding, the muscles and the endless glisten also help.

Not only did Jay spill a tanker full of tea on a very special episode of heat's Under the Duvet, but he also took to Twitter to share a top-secret show secret.

Jay, who was dumped from Love Island with Chyna on 11 July 2022, revealed on Twitter that those boys' and girls' morning debriefs (boys by the pool, girls on the terrace) that remind so many of us of those cringe early lockdown Teams meetings are completely set up and Jay "hated" them.

Jay admitted, "Hated these mandatory morning debriefs #LoveIsland."

The key word there is "mandatory". One follower, wanted clarity that the debriefs were completely producer-fuelled (and, no, they weren't one of ours!), asking Jay, "Do the producers actually tell you to go and sit somewhere and say one by one how your life is going?"

To which Jay said (in between sweaty sets, we can only assume), "Yes".

No wonder they're all wearing incredible sunglasses during these scenes; they allow for unrestrained eye-rolling.

Producers are unlikely to scrap this Love Island staple any time soon, but if you're reading this, ITV, how about scrapping asking them what Islanders are going to do that day. They've made it very clear that there's nothing to do in that villa but "chill", "vibe" and "crack on". Ick.

Who is Jay Younger dating?

It seems that Jay is currently single and unless he is dating us we would like to keep it that way. Thanks.

Does Jay Younger have Instagram?

Yes he does and you'd be a fool not to follow @jayyounger_
