Winter Love Island star Will Young was a bit too open with Olivia Hawkins after showing him a tattoo dedicated to his ex-girlfriend.
The 23-year-old farmer, who is TikTok famous, had only just coupled up with ring girl Olivia, 27 when he made the bombshell revelation.
Olivia and Will weren’t chosen by the other islanders and were put together by default after Maya Jama hosted the first coupling of the series.
Will asked Olivia about tattoos while they were having a conversation in the gorgeous South African villa.
‘No, I’m a clean sheet,’ the actress revealed to which the farmer replied: ‘What? Sheep?’ clearly still dreaming of his day job.
After she corrected him, Will then admitted he had a tattoo and proceeded to show her a tiny letter ‘P’ he had inked on his ankle.

‘Is that a girl’s initial,’ Olivia asked casually, before Will confessed: ‘Yeah, that I met on holiday.’
Olivia, who has worked as a body double for Michelle Keegan, looked shocked and said: ‘Wait, you’ve got another girl’s initial on your ankle? I don’t understand why you told me that. You should have lied.’
Will was equally shocked by Olivia’s statement and replied: ‘Why would I lie? You can’t start a relationship on a lie. I sometimes say, if I lie it would only get out.’
Still not over it, Olivia asked if he’d get it ‘covered up’, to which Will joked: ‘For you, maybe.’
Viewers were highly entertained by the scenes, with one tweeting: ‘Olivia is using that P tattoo as her reason to leave this man quickly.’
Sharing Olivia’s sentiments, another said: ‘Will and his tattoo is cringing me out.’

One added: ‘Who told Will it was a good idea to show a tattoo with someone else’s name??’
However, others were on Will’s side with one weighing in: ‘This girl is a bit too full on and is expecting too much already chill girl why should he lie about his tattoo.’
As the first episode began, 10 islanders were welcomed to the villa by Maya. This was followed by the introduction of the female and male islanders.
Tanya Manhenga, a biomedical student, was the first to initiate the coupling. She chose Shaq Muhammad as her airport security officer.
Lana Jenkins, a make-up artist from Luton, chose to couple up with the show’s first visually-impaired contestant Ron Hall.
Kai Fagan, PE and science teacher from Manchester met Tanyel Rvan, a North London hairstylist, while Anna May Robey was a payroll administrator from Swansea and was finally paired with Haris Namani, a Doncaster TV salesman.
Love Island airs every evening at 9 pm on ITV2.
