Yet earlier in the day, the investment analyst had told Danica there was “more romantic potential” between himself and Antigoni Buxton, 22.
As a result, baffled fans were quick to share their thoughts on Danica’s decision.
One tweeted: “Was just feeling sorry for Danica but that was MAD. Jay literally said he’s not into her and she still picked him …. Why thooooo?”
Echoing this, another wrote: “Jay made himself perfectly clear to Danica. Why would she pick him?”
A third questioned: “As much as I rate Danica for picking Jay…babes the guy literally rejected you..why would you pick him?”
Earlier in the day, Danica had pulled Jay aside for a chat and asked how he was feeling about the forthcoming recoupling.
The professional dancer pointed out that she would be the one doing the choosing, as it would be the girls’ turn.
But Jay told her: “If I’m being honest, just because of the age difference between you and I, if there was going to be any romantic potential, it would probably be with Antigoni.
“I do actually get on really well with Antigoni. I’m not saying I don’t get on well with you too, but I fell there’s a more of a rapport there.”
Danica told Jay he was in her ‘top three’ when she first entered the villa, adding: “I wouldn’t be completely closed off to being in a couple with yourself.”

He replied: “Thank you, I appreciate it. But I think there is more romantic potential between me and Antigoni than there is between you and I.”
Looking awkward, Jay told her: “But I mean, you do you.”
Dancia’s decision to pick Jay sparked upset with Antigoni, who had set her sights on either him or Davide Sanclimenti, 27.
