Love Island 2021 is now less than four weeks away—and casting rumours are hotting up. Alongside junior doctor Tolu Adepeju, aerial dancer Alexis Bailey and boxer Harley Benn, a number of names that were previously floated for Winter Love Island are now being rumoured for the new series—including Alisha LeMay and Jay Munro.
Who is Jay Munro?
Jay is a 24-year-old male model and former footballer from Scotland. Back when he was rumoured for Winter Love Island, a source told the Daily Star:
Jay will be the one all the girls will be chasing. Just like Tommy Fury, he's a sportsman, in good shape and has dreamy looks.
He already has a large social media following—with over 190,000 Instagram followers and more than 210,000 TikTok followers. He has a particular fanbaseDown Under after he appeared on the Australian version of The Voice in 2019. He was dubbed the ‘hot door pusher’ thanks to his job opening the doors to the audition room for contestants.
Is Jay Munro single?
Crucially, Jay appears to fulfil the Love Island requirement of being single. The only girls who appear on his Instagram feed are his mum and his sister (aww). He’ll be popular with any girls or guys who love tattoos as he’s inked all across his torso, both arms and one of his legs.
He’s signed with agency Nev Models and has done a lot of modelling—including for big brands like JD and ASOS. His job has taken him across the globe to work in Thailand, Ibiza, Bali and Singapore. Could a stint in the Majorca Love Island villa be his next stop? Only a few weeks to go until we find out...
