‘I think her and Davide have unfinished business’: Love Island’s Jay confesses he’s starting to doubt his romance with Ekin-Su ALREADY – and quickly sets his sights on Paige
After the pair’s kisses brought an abrupt end to her relationship with Davide Sanclimenti, it appears that Jay is already having second thoughts, admitting he would have convinced Ekin-Su to stay if he’d been dumped from the villa.
During a poolside chat with Gemma Owen, Jay then admitted that Paige is the girl he’s keen to get to know, adding he feels Ekin-Su and Davide still have ‘unfinished business.’
Already? Jay Younger revealed that he is starting to doubt his romance with Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu during Tuesday’s episode of Love Island
Ekin-Su came dangerously close to being dumped from the villa after learning she was one of the three girls who received the least votes from the public.
Luckily it was soon revealed that Amber Beckford had been voted off the show, alongside Ikenna Ekwonna.
The following morning, Jay admitted that he wasn’t sure he would have walked out of the villa had Ekin-Su been dumped, telling Tasha and Andrew: ‘Would I have walked if Ekin had been voted off? Likewise would Ekin have walked if I’d been voted off?
‘It’s difficult to say. If it was me, I would have encouraged Ekin to stay because I would like to test if she was genuine with me.’
Shocking: The hunk admitted during a chat with Gemma Owen he has already set his sights on Paige Thorne (pictured)
Confession: After the pair’s kisses brought an abrupt end to her relationship with Davide Sanclimenti, Jay has admitted he would have convinced Ekin-Su to stay if he’d been dumped
Asking Ekin-Su if she felt the same, the actress replied: ‘I personally felt like if you were going to go, then I felt like going. But that’s just me. That should prove I like you.’
Later Jay then asked Gemma: ‘If I wasn’t coupled up with Ekin, do you think any of the girls in here would be open to getting to know me? Which ones do you think?
As Gemma responded with Paige’s name, Jay added: ‘The only reason why I ask is, while everything is great with Ekin, I’m getting the feeling that her and Davide [Sanclimenti] have got unfinished business.’
Admission: The following morning, Jay admitted that he wasn’t sure he would have walked out of the villa had Ekin-Su been dumped
Jay went onto confess that he’s begun to realise his initial feelings for Ekin-Su may have stemmed from ‘lust,’ so it remains to be seen whether he will act on his interest for Paige.
Meanwhile, there was more drama during the latest episode as Amber Beckford and Ikenna Ekwonna were both brutally dumped – as new girl Antigoni Buxton gets set to enter the villa.
The public had been voting for their least favourite girl and boy which left Monday night’s show on a nail-biting cliff hanger as the contestants gathered around the fire pit to learn their fate.
Open: He asked Gemma which girls could be ‘open’ to getting to know him, and she responded with Paige
Drama: Jay added: ‘I’m getting the feeling that her and Davide (pictured) have got unfinished business’
Shock: Meanwhile, Amber Beckford and Ikenna Ekwonna were both dumped from the villa on Tuesday night’s dramatic episode
The boys with the fewest votes were Ikenna, Jay Younger and Andrew Le Page while the girls with the fewest votes were Tasha Ghouri, Amber and Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu.
The girls were left devastated as Amber left, with Tasha saying she felt ‘heartbroken’ that she was dumped, while the boys lamented how the villa wouldn’t be the same without Ikenna.
Earlier in the night after the names were announced, Paige Thorne received a text that said: ‘Only one boy and one girl will be going home tonight. That decision is in the hands of the public.’
Danica Taylor and Dami Hope both received text messages saying: ‘The boy/girl with the fewest votes and therefore dumped from the island is…’ before the show ended with viewers forced to wait until Tuesday to find out who has been dumped.
Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub.
