Will Young Biography – Will Young Wiki
Will Young, also known as Farmer Will, is a Buckinghamshire farmer, TikTok star and Love Island 2023 contestant. Young is a farmer famous for his TikTok videos. Known as Farmer Will to his more than one million followers, Young will appear on the winter season of the ITV reality show.
He’s amassed a following on social media by documenting his life on the farm, from feeding pigs to shearing sheep, since posting his first video in 2019. The 23-year-old TikTok star has racked up more than 32 million likes on the video-sharing platform with his farming content.
Animal rights charity PETA has criticised Love Island farmer Will Young, as they claimed he “exploits” animals for his TikTok. The animal welfare organisation re-shared a 2020 clip of Will, which he has since deleted from his TikTok account, which sees him dancing around a sheep giving birth before moving the newborn lamb to the music.
Re-sharing the clip to Instagram, the organisation wrote: “This farmer is a disgusting creep! He’s dancing over her body as she gives birth! Then he forces the second-old baby to ‘dance’ for clout on TikTok.”
A representative of PETA has since said that Will should be ashamed of posting TikTok dances with a seconds-old lamb for “social media click bait”.
PETA Vice President of Programmes Elisa Allen told The Sun: “Women want a man who cares about animals, not someone who exploits them for their fleece, their flesh, or social media clickbait.
“Mr Young might want to consider that the cholesterol in meat and dairy can clog the arteries to all organs, not just the heart – and switch to a vegan diet if he wants to please his partner in the villa or later in his life.”
Will Young is a fifth-generation farmer. His family farm is estimated to be worth around £1.6 million and has a cottage – called The Dairy – which can be rented out for £600 for three nights on Airbnb.

Why ‘Love Island’ and why now?
Having grown up on a farm, it’s been quite difficult juggling relationships and work. ‘Love Island’ will give me time away from the farm to solely go out and find love. I think I’m at the time of my life where I’m mature enough to go and find a wife.
Tell us something not many people know about you?
Every night I light a candle and meditate for 20-25 minutes. A girl I was seeing told me to meditate, I tried it and loved it. I stopped seeing her and carried on meditating! It’s a nice way to self reflect, taking a minute on my day/ week. It’s really nice and sets me up for a nice sleep.
Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?
Sir David Attenborough. Imagine hearing his calming voice talking while he’s feeding the animals, his top off, some short shorts… he would rock it.
