Is Will Young a farmer?

Yes, Will is a farmer. The 23-year-old, who was born in Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, is looking to find a "wife" after years of working hard on his family's estate.

"Having grown up on a farm, it's been quite difficult juggling relationships and work," he said before heading into the villa. "Love Island will give me time away from the farm to solely go out and find love. I think I’m at the time of my life where I’m mature enough to go and find a wife."

Will was brought up on the family farm by parents Andy and Jenny, alongside his brother Tom.

On why he is single, Will said: "Honestly? Probably commitment issues. I self-sabotage myself sometimes when I’ve got a good thing going. I do like my own space and my own time; I haven’t got to stress about anything and just worry about myself."
