Wes is looking forward to making friends for life on Love Island: “We’re all going to be together 24 hours a day, seven days a week which you’d never do with anyone outside of the villa, so I think those friendships are going to be lifelong.”
Wes is not messing around. “I’m looking for a partner,” he says. “I’m looking for someone I can settle down with and tame my wild lifestyle. I am 20 years old but I’d say I am ahead of my age in terms of maturity and in terms of who I am and my mannerisms. I don’t think I’d be childish in there. I consider myself a mature person so definitely looking for something serious.”
He’d like to be with an older girl – “I always go for the cougars!” – with “genuine compassion and genuine feelings” and he wants to avoid anyone who is “really arrogant” or “ignorant in their own ways”.
