What is Will Young’s job?

Will is a farmer and spends his day working with animals on his family farm, something he has said brings him a lot of joy.

On his social media accounts, Will shares content of himself sheering sheep and building pig pens which has proved very popular.

He said: “Having grown up on a farm, it’s been quite difficult juggling relationships and work. 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.”

What is Will Young’s TikTok and Instagram?

You can find Will on TikTok @farmerwill_ - where he has over one million followers thanks to his topless farming antics making him one of the most social famous contestants this year.

You can also find him sharing similar content on his Instagram feed @farmer_will_.

This year all the Islander’s social media pages will be disabled while they’re in the villa as ITV has asked them to make their accounts “dormant. This is so they can avoid “the adverse effects of social media”.

This means you’ll have to wait until she’s back in England to see any updates.
