The graphic video showed Will coming to the rescue of the pregnant sheep using his bare hands, which divided fans online.

Other content includes a video of him aiding a sheep during the birthing process, after the head and hooves of the calf became stuck.

Will previously addressed the death threats he had received due to the vivid nature of the clips during an interview with the Financial Times.

Reflecting on the videos, he said: ‘It was just two hooves and a head, pull it out, job done. I’d never have got the camera out for a situation I wasn’t in control of.’

According to The Sun, PETA reshared one of the videos of Will helping a sheep give birth, and wrote: ‘This farmer is a disgusting creep. He’s dancing over her body as she gives birth.’

In 2020, contestant Ollie Williams caused uproar about his inclusion in the show after images of him posing next to slaughtered animals in Africa emerged.

Ollie – who has denied he is a trophy hunter – left fans ‘traumatised’ as he posed with the dead deers, which he killed while taking part in a cull in Dartmore.

Taking to Instagram, the aristocrat, 23, who has previously branded himself a ‘passionate conservationist insisted that ‘hunting is conservation,’ as he boasted about ‘great evening’ spent ‘stalking’ deers.

The pictures created an angry backlash from his Love Island alum including Shaughna Hughes and his followers online. 

Elsewhere, Will revealed that Claudia Winkleman, 50, once came to his Buckinghamshire farm and threw a bucket of water over him, while he was shirtless.

Back in November, the farmer took to TikTok where he shared a video of his hilarious interaction with the Strictly Come Dancing host.

Ahead of heading into the Love Island villa, Will was asked to give his ‘claim to fame,’ and so he recalled: ‘Claudia Winkleman came to my farm. She was lovely and got stuck in. She poured water over me.’

And in the TikTok clip, Will – wearing nothing put a pair of shorts – pretends to be surprised when he spots Claudia sitting in his pig pen, holding up a bottle of shampoo while filming a video of herself.

After plugging Head and Shoulders for preventing dandruff, the pigs then instruct The Traitors host Claudia to ‘get his hair wet’ via a crafty voiceover.

In the next clip, Will is sat topless on a bench, with Claudia standing up next to him as she pours a bucket of water over his head, much to the delight of his 1.1million TokTok followers.

Will regularly shows off his muscular physique on TikTok where he offers followers an insight into his rural lifestyle. 

The farmer shears sheep and hangs out with pigs as he gets down and dirty with the animals – all while shirtless.

Ahead of his entry into the villa Will said: ‘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.’

The farmer has a spiritual side, revealing: ‘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.’

And the singleton has high hopes for fame after the villa, revealing he’d love legendary broadcaster Sir David Attenborough, 96, to play him in a movie.

‘Imagine hearing his calming voice talking while he’s feeding the animals, his top off, some short shorts… he would rock it.’

Criticism: Love Island has unveiled the first ten singletons headed to South Africa for the new winter series but some online critics have attached the lack of diversity in the lineup
