Love Island‘s Jacques has said ‘no’ to joining Celebs go Dating for an offer of £60k in order to wait for Paige.
The rugby player, who recently left the villa after struggling with his mental health, has turned down an offer to appear on the rival show because he is choosing to wait for his love interest, Paige Throne, to leave the villa and return home to him.
The 23-year-old, who has ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) left villa as he was unsure how he would react to newest contestant Adam Collard. He decided to “work on himself” rather than head straight back into another reality TV show, as reported by The Sun.
A source has told the publication that they think they can help Jacques find love:
“An Islander always makes for a great signing and Jacques is a real stand-out, particularly because he’s already shown that he’s willing to put the work in and really change,”
“That’ll make him a really credible candidate for the agency’s help, never mind be someone that fans would tune in for.”
“But Jacques wants to wait for Paige so it may well be too late by the time she emerges.”
