Laura Anderson brings up her age gap with Wes Nelson on Love Island 2018 this evening.
Having stayed solid since coupling up on day one, in tonight’s show, Laura wants to know where Wes’ head is at.
29-year-old Laura is currently the oldest of the contestants in the villa while at 20, Wes is the youngest.
Seizing a moment to share her insecurities with him in the garden, Laura confesses: “I know that it doesn’t seem like there’s a big age gap, but there is. I don’t feel it, it’s just I would feel bad on you.
“Obviously I don’t want to waste my time and I wouldn’t want to waste your time. I don’t know, I’m just over thinking and worrying a little bit.”
Eager to reassure her, Wes asserts that the age difference is insignificant to him: “Honestly my outlook on it is I genuinely came on to find someone that’s beautiful that I can get to know, that I can properly understand on a deep level and settle down with.
“And actually go on a journey with as opposed to just having a bit of fun with. I want something that’s going to last. As corny as it sounds I want something that’s forever.”
Outlining her aspirations for being in the villa, Laura drops a bombshell when she admits: “Obviously it chills me out a bit because I am looking to find a husband.”
Surprisingly, Wes is undeterred by Laura’s unexpected admission, assuring her that he has similar objectives: “Yeah, definitely. That’s what I’m talking about. I’m here to find a girlfriend. I feel like we’re on the same page.
“You’re a girl that I’d love to take home and meet my mum. Meet my family. You’d fit in really well.”
Keen to stress his commitment towards Laura in the Beach Hut, Wes reflects: “So when Laura mentioned the word ‘husband’, I didn’t bat an eyelid. I didn’t think that that affected me in any way, shape and form.
“I know there’s a lot of guys in here, even the older guys that would have flinched or showed a bit of a reaction to her saying ‘husband and got a bit scared of that big old commitment that it is, but I didn’t bat an eyelid.”
Love Island 2018 airs tonight at 9PM on ITV2.
