Love Island star addresses rumours about his sexuality as his show lover hits back at ‘outdated views’
LOVE Island star Will Young has addressed rumours about his sexuality as his girlfriend Jessie Wynter slammed “outdated views”.
Will became the life and soul of the villa with his big personality, dance moves and sense of humour.
But the farmer, 23, has now been forced to open up about his sexuality, saying is “happy” with himself and will not change for anyone.
“I was 100% myself in the villa. I’m happy with myself and I’m happy with Jessie,” he told The Mirror.
“My brother is gay, and so I’m all for it.
“I don’t think anyone can say that to me in a negative way.
“As a person I’m very outgoing and charismatic, and I’m not going to change.”
Aussie bombshell Jessie, 26, hit back and said those people judging him need to grow up.
She added: “It’s 2023 and judging people’s sexuality is outdated and needs to get out of the window.”
It comes days after the couple enjoyed their first post-show date to supermarket Tesco.
Jessie and Will played around as they documented their late night shop on TikTok.
She wrote: “First late night Tesco trip.”
In a chat with Heat for their Heat Dates YouTube series, Jessie gave a clearer insight into why they chose to head to the superstore for their first date.
Jessie said: “Yes! We drove past it and he [Will] kept mentioning Tesco and I was like, ‘What are you talking about?’ We don’t have that in Australia, so he was like, ‘Right, we’re going right now.’ OMG, there were so many candles, and all the UK chocolates and everything.”
She cheekily added: “I’ll be honest, I’m a cheap date – not hard to please here.”
It comes after the Jessie appeared to snub one of her fellow co-stars upon her arrival in the UK.
Jessie took to Instagram to follow a number of her co-stars including Claudia Fogarty, Sanam Harrinanan, Samie Elishi and Lana Jenkins.
But one person missing from her following list is Tanyel – who was dumped from the villa on day 24.
It appears that Tanyel hasn’t hit follow for Jessie either.
