Love Island’s Will Young is compared to Kourtney Kardashian as he shows off his ‘grafting hat’  


You’d be forgiven for thinking Kourtney Kardashian and Will Young don’t have much in common. 

Yet Love Island star Will seemed to be taking style inspiration from the reality TV icon when he showed off his chic new accessory during Wednesday’s episode. 

The 23-year-old farmer from Buckinghamshire drew comparisons to the American millionaire, 43, and left his fellow Islanders in hysterics when he modelled a fuzzy zebra print bucket hat that he claimed would help him ‘graft’ the ladies.

After being left single when newcomer Tom Clare chose to couple up with his partner Olivia Hawkins, Will shared his plans for the day ahead. 

Discussing his first night sleeping alone, Will pulled on the hat and quipped: ‘I had unreal cuddles with these pillow last night.’ 

Yet his fellow Islanders were left distracted by his funky headwear, with Shaq Muhammad saying: ‘man, bro, I’m loving the hat mate’, while Olivia noted: ‘Kourtney Kardashian!’ 

As Will asked: ‘good look?’ he received a chorus of yeses, prompting him to add: ‘this is what im going to wear to graft today.’ 

Ron Hall then quipped: ‘I would actually couple up with you!’ as Will joked: ‘came in here looking for love but coming out with a bromance.’

Love the way you style: Will also seemed to be taking fashion tips from Rihanna, who was spotted wearing the same hat in April last year

Will didn’t follow through by donning his grafting hat for the day, which may have had something to do with him being ‘friendzoned’ by Lana Jenkins during an awkward chat. 

Will got to work on Lana in the morning pulling her aside for a chat by the pool to see how she felt about him.

However, things didn’t go to plan for the farmer as Lana admitted she doesn’t see him in a romantic way.

Lana told Will that Ron, who she is currently coupled up with, is the only guy she has feelings for in the villa.

Yet while he may not have had the best time finding romance in the villa, Will made the viewing public fall in love with him after sharing a hilarious moment with Lana later in the episode. 

He left fans in hysterics when he impersonated the blonde beauty after she spoke about a former flame who had given her the ‘ick’. 

Lana recalled: ‘I had a guy when he was driving he had a really nice car and he was like “let me show you how fast it goes” and he put his foot down and went “woo!”‘

As Will and fellow Anna-May Robey cringed, Lana added: ‘that was an ick.’

Will then threw his arms up in the air as he impersonated Lana and squealed: ‘hands up girls, wooooo!’ 

Taking to Twitter, giddy fans compared the scene to something you’d see on video game The Sims, while others noted that the trio were in blue, pink and green and compared the group to The Powerpuff Girls.
