EXCLUSIVE Casa Amor star reveals ‘untrustworthy’ Islander and now we don’t know what to think

But surely they're the nicest person in the whole wide world?

Love Island's Jazmine Nichol has hit out at fellow Casa Amor bombshell, Billy Brown, after co-star Mollie Salmon revealed he was dating her friend a few years ago.

The ex-Islanders were asked in a new interview whether they think Billy is into Gemma Owen, to which Jazmine replied cynically, “That’s not a friendship.” However, Mollie came to their defence claiming the two were “just friends” and insisted Billy was just being “a bit of a flirt.”

But despite Billy seemingly winning most of the Islanders over with his charm, it seems Jazmine isn't a fan. “I don’t trust him, I’ve known boys like that… from the second I met him I was like ‘something's not right there’," she said on the Murad Murali podcast.

With Thursday night’s episode of the ITV2 show featuring Billy getting cosy with Danica Taylor, fans have taken to Twitter to show their love for the new couple – “Billy and Danica might just be the couple that win”, while others have predicted that he is “only interested in Danica because of her bum.

Could they be future finalists?? 👀

Billy Brown's argument with Jacques O'Neill

In an uncomfortable incident, Billy got in the way of a three-way squabble between Jacques O'Neill (who subsequently quit the show), Paige Thorne and Adam Collard, which saw Jacques fobbing off Billy so he could confront Paige about a shady conversation with bombshell of all bombshells, Adam. Jacques stormed over to Billy and Paige, who were chilling wholesomely on the day bed, only to tell Billy to "f-ck off", so he could talk to Paige about her chat with Adam.

Over the last few days, Billy has also come under passive aggressive fire from both Luca Bish and Andrew Le Page for getting relatively cosy with Gemma (Gemma maintains it is platonic flirting although who can really tell behind those sunglasses?) and Tasha. Side note: we think "we don't do tears, we only smile, alright?" might've actually fractured our soul.

Back to why you've got to hand it to Billy - he goes through all THIS on the regs and STILL keeps smiling.

As such, social media appears somewhat concerned for this glass-half-full geezer.


Another tweeted, "Justice for my guy Billy, Jacques did not need to be that rude to him #loveisland."

A third wrote, "Poor Billy though gets told to f-ck off, then has to comfort Tasha who is crying for the millionth time over Andrew."

Billy's sister, who is managing his socials while he is in the vila, took to Instagram to praise her brother for his behaviour, "The way Billy held himself tonight, I could not be a prouder sister right now😭you are the kindest soul and I'm so glad everyone can finally get to see it❤️."

Were Billy Brown and Gemma Owen friends BEFORE entering the villa?

Love Island fans noticed that newcomer Billy Brown was no stranger to Gemma when he entered Casa Amor pretty early on.

It's now been revealed that Billy and Gemma share mutual friends in the outside world. Billy has even been on holiday with Gemma's pal.

Billy’s best bud Cameron Green, a 23-year-old ex-Wrexham footballer, is the mutual middleman connecting the two Islanders.

Right before the bombshell entered the villa, in true lads' holiday fashion, the two boys were pictured together (topless, because of course) on a yacht, spraying champagne across Ibiza’s Ocean Beach Club. Billy shared the snap on his Instagram page.

Upon meeting Billy, Gemma warned the girls, “I’ve never met him, but one of my best boy mates on the outside is his best mate. He’s a bit of a player, like a lad’s lad.”

Billy now has his sights set on both Tasha and Gemma - even head peacock Adam Collard seems to think Billy and Gemma have a stronger connection than him and Gemma could ever have. Talk about ruffling feathers.

Billy isn’t the first familiar face entering the villa for Gemma Owen after the shock arrival of ex Jacques, she seems to be handling another familiar face pretty well. Let's see how she copes with Michael Owen popping in for a spell on family day.

How old is Billy Brown?

Billy is 23 years old.

Where is Billy Brown from?

What is Billy Brown's job?

Despite telling the villa he picked up penguins for a living (which caused quite the stir), he is in fact a roofing company director.

Why is Billy Brown going on Love Island?

After having two girlfriends in the past, Billy says it is time to find the third lucky lady.

What did Billy Brown think he will bring to the villa?

Billy said, I’m going to bring the funniness, the vibes, probably step on a few toes, I’m not going to lie. I’ve not got my eye on one girl, it’s all of them! I need to get to know them all.”

Does Billy Brown consider himself competitive? Will he be treading on any toes?

He said, I’m very competitive in anything I do. Whatever it is, I always want to win. This is about winning the girl I want, sort of thing. If that girl has a better connection with me and likes the look of me more then I’m obviously going to change her mind.”

What makes Billy Brown a good catch?

Although Gemma warned the girls that he can be a bit of a player, Billy claims he has a romantic side, too.

He said, “When I get into a relationship I’m very, very romantic. At the start I’m quite playful, funny, making everyone laugh. But when you put a name on it, I still have that, but I get more romantic, doing things for them, all the cute stuff. The most romantic thing I’ve done is I asked a girl out with candles. I laid out across the garden ‘will you be my girlfriend?’ in candles. I got her to look out the window and see it on the grass. It took an hour to set up! She said yes - of course!”
