The 2022 season of Love Island has been full of all the twists and turns that we have come to expect and, as is usually the case, it is the newcomers that have made things a tad more complicated for the islanders.

One of those latecomers to the Love Island 2022 cast is 28-year-old financial adviser Jay Younger, and while it looked like he was set to find love with his current partner, Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu, it has not taken long for arguments to start.

Jay swooped in to steal Ekin-Su from Davide Sanclimenti and that caused a lot of drama, but more is coming as he has now decided that he wants to get to know Paige better - and that choice did not go down well with some of his villa roomies.

I feel like because I moved so fast with you, I didn’t get the chance to explore getting to know one islander in particular here, which is Paige. I wanted to tell you first because I respect you and I owe you the respect," is how Jay delivered the news to Ekin-Su, but is he set to find love?

Jay joined the Love Island 2022 line-up alongside 22-year-old rapper Remi Lambert, but while Jay is still around, Remi soon joined the list of contestants to leave Love Island.

Read on for everything you need to know about Jay Younger – a 28-year-old investment analyst from Edinburgh.

Jay in Love Island 2022

Age: 28


Job: Investment Analyst

From: Edinburgh

Who is Jay coupled up with? At the time of writing, Ekin Su. But we have a feeling this will change very soon...

Why did Jay Younger want to take part in Love Island?

The 28-year-old investment analyst has said that he's signed up for Love Island as he's ready to settle down with someone.

"I think I am at the point in my life where it would be quite fun to find someone and have fun along the way," he said. "And doing it in Mallorca and in the Villa would be a great opportunity, so why not?"

Is Jay on Instagram?

Jay’s family and friends are currently running his account but he is on there @jayyounger_. He is another who has only joined the platform recently so it is a bit thin on the ground at the moment - that should change once he returns home though.

What is Jay Younger looking for in a partner?

While Jay hasn't revealed his type on paper, he's said that he thinks he has "what most females want".

"I’ve got a good job, I think I am a good looking lad and I have a lot of fun so I feel like I could add a lot of value to their lives if they add a lot of value to mine."

As for what gives him the ick, Jay says: "Someone who is quite needy. I quite like self sufficiency."
