Love Island contestant Will Young says Aussie co-star Jessie Wynter is moving to the UK to live with him on his farm — and help deliver lambs.
The couple, who were dumped from the ITV2 show days before Monday night’s final in South Africa, have been inseparable since flying back to London.
And speaking exclusively to MailOnline, they told of their keenness to live and work together on Will’s Buckinghamshire farm just in time for lambing season.
Their decision comes after Will revealed veteran Countryfile host John Craven ‘slid into his DMs’ to congratulate him for endorsing farming to younger audiences.
Will said: ‘Jessie is moving to the farm for the next month or two and she will be doing lambing and all of that, which I’m super, super excited about.

Will and Jessie spent one night apart when they landed on UK soil but the smitten couple, who met eight weeks ago on the dating series, say they found being separated ‘horrible’
‘When she visited for the first time this week, I gave her some wellies and she was getting really stuck in and feeding the animals, it made me fall in love with her even more.’
Will, 23, and Jessie, 26, spent one night apart when they landed on UK soil but the smitten couple, who met eight weeks ago on the dating series, say they found being separated ‘horrible.’
Indeed, the frisky pair admit they’ve barely left the bedroom now the cameras are no longer rolling.
Jessie said: ‘It’s 100 times better now we’re out the villa. It is a million times better, I’ll tell you that much.’
However, the couple says they’re yet to speak to their parents about having sex in the villa, while Jessie admits she went on Love Island with the intention of not romping on TV.
Jessie said: ‘Our parents haven’t commented on us having sex in the villa… we’re just going to pretend like that didn’t happen. I wasn’t planning on doing that…’
Speaking about the villa’s famous Hideaway, Will added: ‘I thought we were just going to go in and not have sex because we were being filmed but you’re in there for so long… It’s portrayed in a playful way.
‘But it’s been so nice leaving the villa and having proper alone time. The Hideaway gives you a good idea of whether this is going to work on the outside, there are cameras, little hidden ones but it felt like a hotel on the outside.’

Personal trainer Jessie says it was never her intention to have sex on camera but the couple admit eight weeks is a long time to go without any intimacy
Will is thankful their connection goes beyond life inside the Love Island villa, adding: ‘There are no cameras, we can just chill and when you can relax with someone in silence and it’s not weird, that’s so nice.
‘Some people on the show were saying they wanted to spend time apart from their partner to make their heart grow fonder and I said to Jessie ‘we are not doing that.’ I don’t need my heart to grow fonder! I know what my heart wants.’
Jessie, who’s a personal trainer from Tasmania and currently lives in Sydney, found fame on the Australian series of Love Island in 2019.
She entered the UK winter season, which was presented this year for the first time by Maya Jama, as a bombshell.
Meanwhile, Will grew up on a farm in Buckinghamshire that has been in his family for six generations.
Will insists the pressure to make their romance work isn’t purely on Jessie’s shoulders, saying he will be visiting her home in Tasmania before they commit to a long-term plan.

He said: ‘A relationship works both ways, I can’t rely on Jessie to pack her bags and I would never want her to do that. I am such a family man and I want to experience Jessie’s family, her home. I’ve never been to Australia, but I’ve heard there’s loads of sheep there.’
They already have approval from Countryfile’s John after Will, who’s amassed thousands of TikTok and Instagram followers with his entertaining farming videos, said the veteran host reached out to him, hinting a presenting role on the BBC One show could be on the cards.
He teased: ‘Maybe, maybe… I want my career to be with farming. John Craven actually slid into my DMs, it was so rewarding that someone from Countryfile had reached out. He can really see I have a passion and a love for farming.’
The couple are busy making plans for the future and hope they can follow in the footsteps of 2019 Islanders Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury, who recently welcomed their first baby together.
Will said: ‘We’ve had conversations about marriage and babies. We are on the same page with everything we want. I don’t want to live my life without her.’
And Jessie couldn’t agree more, adding: ‘I am turning 27 later this year and I’m from the country. Most of my friends were married at 22, I’m the odd one out!’
Viewers watched their romance blossom for eight weeks in the Love Island villa, but it wasn’t all smooth sailing for the couple, whose relationship was thrown into doubt after Will kissed Layla Al-Momani during the Casa Amor loyalty test.
Jessie confessed to being ‘shattered’ by Will’s actions, while he considered quitting the show if he failed to win her back.

It wasn’t just Will’s betrayal that left Jessie on the brink of an emotional breakdown, with the star revealing producers ‘had to take me out of the villa to see a psychologist a couple of times’
She said: ‘It was so much harder than I could have imagined and it’s because I love Will so much. I got so emotionally invested so early on. It was shattering. It bought up past emotions.
‘I’ve had a lot of experiences with partners being unfaithful. I started to feel like I wasn’t good enough.
‘For me it was the thought of losing Jessie and messing up, it crushed me,’ Will added.
‘It was in my mind for a week or two that if we didn’t go back to normal, I didn’t want to be in the villa, I felt like I didn’t have a place there.
‘I have never been in love my entire life… this is the first time. So, I had those feelings building up to Casa Amor and then I f***ed up and I didn’t know whether I’d get her back or not. It was that feeling of I ruined everything.’
It wasn’t just Will’s betrayal that left Jessie on the brink of an emotional breakdown.
She also faced criticism from her fellow Islanders, who questioned whether her feelings for Will were genuine after they allegedly saw ‘no tears’ when she sobbed over the Casa Amor fallout.
Now Jessie has revealed that Love Island bosses had to step in, admitting, ‘it was tough. Producers actually had to take me out of the villa to see a psychologist a couple of times.’
She continued: ‘You’re enclosed in that environment, and I felt I was always being chipped at. I put my whole heart into everything.
‘I felt like I was really there for people, and I genuinely loved Will but for some reason no matter how much I did… I would do the dishes for everyone, and I was trying so hard to be happy, but people would still come at me, and no one ever said those things to my face.’

Will and Jessie believe the right couple won the £50,000 cash prize and say they were focussed on their relationship from the moment they met.
Jessie said: ‘They were mature and stayed out of the drama. I’m so happy for them.
‘They were there to concentrate on themselves and that’s what they did. Perhaps we weren’t as close to them, Kai I didn’t really get to know but it’s good seeing such a pure couple, a teacher and social worker, win Love Island.’
