Will Young thinks Olivia Hawkins is "better suited" to Tom Clare.

The 23-year-old farmer is currently taking part in the hit ITV reality dating show 'Love Island' and even though he is now in danger of being evicted after ring girl Olivia, 27, left him for bombshell arrival Tom, 23, he believes the two make a better match.

Fresh from the re-coupling at the fire pit, Will told Tom on Wednesday’s (18.01.23) episode: "Honestly, you are well better suited. It just means that I’ve got to graft a little harder now!"

Elsewhere in the episode, Will was seen the following morning grabbing Lana Jenkins, 25, for a chat on the beanbags but despite appearing to get closer, the makeup artist brushed Will off as "not her type" and insisted that she only has feelings for financial advisor Ron, 25, whom she is currently coupled up with.

Will asked Lana: "Where's your head at about me?"

She replied: "I think you are lovely, but I haven't got that spark about you."

Meanwhile, airport security guard Shaq Muhammad, 24, cosied up to biomedical student Tanya Manhenga, 22, by the fireplace as he admitted he just wants to "keep her close."

He said: "That was intense, something like that kind of puts things into perspective, in those kinds of situations you...”

Tanya asks: “You what?”

Shaq replied: “I just want to keep you close…”'

Tanya said: "I’m your little baby. I want to keep you close!" and the pair looked set to finally share their first kiss, before Tanya pulled away.

Speaking in the beach hut, Shaq said: "I got pied. I went in for the kill and she pied me off but do you know what yeah, she’s definitely something special.’

In her own confessional, Tanya later acknowledged that even though the "vibe" was "making sense", it was "too soon" for her to kiss him just yet.

She said: "He tried to give me a little kiss and the vibe was making sense, but I can’t give it him too soon."

'Love Island' airs at 9pm on ITV2 and ITVX. The dating reality show can be seen in Ireland on Virgin Media Two and Virgin Media Player.
