Love Island's Jay Says There's A Hidden 'Tuck Shop' Where Contestants Snack

We rarely see the Love Island contestants eating outside of breakfast and the occasional date night, but it turns out they have a hidden tuck shop.

The revelation was made by dumped Islander Jay Younger, who famously snuck around with Ekin-Su on the terrace during their short-lived romance this season. Watch below:


Jay made the revelation in a recent interview with Digital Spy when asked if there's anything that fans of the show don't know about the villa.


He said: "I'm not sure if the viewers know that there is a big cupboard of food behind the kitchen. So, if you're really hungry at night, all you need to do is knock on that door, ask for what you want and it's given to you."

The interviewer then asked the Scotsman to clarify whether or not it was like a 'tuck shop', and he replied: "Literally, whatever food you want it's on tap there.

"For me, it was chocolate rice cakes. I absolutely love them in the evenings, or bowls of cereal. There's a big cupboard of food in there so if you want it, it's right there."

Jay is not the only dumped Islander to open up about what's been going on behind-the-scenes with food on this year's season.

Coco Lodge had a brief stint in the villa after being introduced as a Casa Amor bombshell and striking up a brief connection with Andrew before he eventually returned to Tasha.

Discussing the Islanders' hidden food antics on Access All Areas, she explained that they 'loved to snack' and had '3am toasties every night'.

She also clarified that the Islanders eat their main meals 'off camera' and they're kept separate so that nothing important to the show's storylines is missed.

Coco also revealed more juicy details about what exactly happened with Andrew and said that she wishes they'd 'gone all the way'.

"I wish I just went the full way because the amount of hate I got anyway, like I might as well have, you know," she said.

"We did not have sex. I mean, he sucked on the t*t, there was probably like a**e groping and like, you know, maybe like a bit of I don’t know rubbing against each other, but that’s about it.


"It's not great when you're so sexually attracted to someone like it's really hard to not get carried away."

Meanwhile, on Reddit, the show's executive producer, Mike Spencer, explained that the Islanders are treated to foods as varied as contestants themselves.

"They have a real mix of foods, everything from lovely fresh salads to roast dinners on a Sunday," he explained, as reported by The Metro.

"Even in the heat they still have a roast dinner."
