WHEN you think of classic teenage heartthrobs you might conjure up images of a young Zac Efron or Harry Styles and probably not Vernon Kay.
However, the 46-year-old has become the unlikely pin-up for UK teens as they post gushing TikTok videos about the dad-of-two.

Since entering the jungle social media has been littered with dedications to Vernon with some claiming he’s “ageing like fine wine.”
TikTok user Oakleigh admitted that she’d baffled her mum with her sudden interest in I’m a Celeb, admitting that her only interest is on the presenter.
Meanwhile, user Libby admitted that her friends had been quick to poke fun at her new crush, telling her “He’s not even good looking, what are you thinking???”
But in a TikTok video she pledged her devotion to Vernon adding, “ugh this man.”

Alicia shared a video of Vernon over the past ten years, captioning it, “Can we all appreciate THIS as the definition of ageing like fine wine.”
Meanwhile, Laura joked that producers thought AJ Prithcard would be the one “for the teenage girls to crush on.”
However, she pointed out that everyone her age was “simping” for Vernon Kay, slang for being emotionally invested in the star.
