Love Island’s Jay Younger has been branded “selfish” and “cutthroat” as two of his exes spoke out following his arrival in the villa.

His family have fired back at the claims saying they are “hurtful” and they said they are looking forward to seeing him show his “kind” personality on the show.

The investment analyst, 28, has already caused a stir on Love Island by eyeing up Amber Beckford and enjoying a cheeky lunch date with Ekin-Su Cülcüloglu.

Off-screen, one former flame known only as Ems, a model from London, claimed the reality star promised her a future before dumping her to go on the ITV2 dating show.

Swept up in a whirlwind romance, she claimed she met his family just two weeks after meeting on Hinge.

But the model admitted she was “devastated” when she found out he was going on Love Island after noticing marks on his arms from compulsory blood tests he had to have in order to go on the show.

She told The Sun: “He said to me, ‘This is for the opportunity only, I’m not going in to find love — I’ve found love with you’. But I just picked up all my stuff and left. He sold me a dream and I was left devastated.

“Then a few days later on the phone he told me, ‘When I’m on Love Island, I’ll rub my ear when I’m thinking of you, like a secret symbol’.”

The model made further claims he promised her a future together, with marriage and children, and even he told her he would buy a house for them with his prize money.

Meanwhile, a second woman calling herself Mal has claimed she dated Younger for six months and shared a flat in Edinburgh with him.

Their relationship came to an end when he allegedly dumped days before she was due to spend Christmas with his family.

She claimed the rising star was “jealous” and “cutthroat”.

The two women ended up making contact after Mal posted a TikTok showing her reaction to Younger walking into the villa.

Jay’s brother has hit back at the accusations made by Ems and Mal, calling them “hurtful”.

He said: “It is very hurtful to see others mischaracterise Jay and label him with unkind remarks that he has no ability to respond to right now.”

He added the family are “looking forward” to showing how “kind, funny and intelligent Jay is”.

The Standard contacted a representative for Jay Younger for comment who called the claims by the two women “nonsense”.
