Speaking about his time in the villa where he found himself in a love-triangle with Davide and Ekin-Su, Jay shared: “Ekin is obviously a beautiful lady, a very strong lady. I just thought she had a bit of a wild side to her and I thought, I’m here to have fun.

“She’s a really attractive girl, I got on well with her the best on our dates. I seemed to click with her instantly so I just thought, why not?

“Because I was there for myself and I was being honest, at the time I felt like I just had to do what was right for me. But as I spent more time in the Villa obviously I became good friends with Davide”

Jay said he was “happy” for the pair now they were back together.

He explained: “I see that Davide deep down really, really likes Ekin-Su. In a weird way, I think me not being there will allow Davide to actually trust her more.

“I feel like I was representing the past for them. Davide and I are good mates but he couldn’t fully invest with Ekin-Su, because he was like, I won’t forget what you did with Jay maybe.”

And Jay tipped the pair to win, adding: “They’ve really done well. ”

Jay went on to discuss his time with Paige, continuing: “She’s a great looking girl with an amazing personality. I felt like I overlooked a potential connection there and I thought I should try it.”

Asked about ending things with Chyna, Jay revealed: “I ended things with Chyna just because I couldn’t fake it. I didn’t feel a romantic connection, so I had to just be honest. I’d rather be alone in there than pretend to be with someone. ”

Love Island continues nightly at 9PM on ITV2 and ITV Hub.
