LOVE Island’s Anton Danyluk’s mum says shaving his bum is the ‘least she can do’.
The smooth-talking Scottish gym boss, 24, left viewers horrified with his confession which came early on in his stay in the villa.
Speaking about her son’s revelation, his mum Sherie Ann Danyluk told Daily Record: “It’s something I do every couple of weeks and it’s no big deal in our house.
“At the end of the day, I used to change his nappies so shaving his bum is nothing.
“What’s the difference in that and taking a bit of hair away from his backside?
“We are really close and it’s the least I can do for him.”
Speaking on the Love Island official podcast, Anton’s former co-star Callum Macleod – who was the first to leave the villa – revealed Anton has asked islanders to crack on with shaving his bum in his mum’s absence.
When asked about Anton’s bottom shaving by Kem Cetinay, Callum, 28, said: “Do you know what? He asked every one of us.
“I think someone is secretly doing it, but it wasn’t me.
“He can’t do it himself, he said that, but he literally went round us and said ‘can I have a little word with you?’ and then he’d drop it in.”
Before entering the villa, the former butler in the buff spoke about his mum helping him shave and said: “I said to my mum my bum was hairy so she shaved it before I came out here.
“You go with an electric razor first and then with a normal razor.”
He added: “I had a manicure and pedicure and my eyebrows threaded before the show.”

Anton is currently paired up platonically with Lucie Donlan, who revealed her feelings for Tommy Fury in Friday’s episode.
Meanwhile, his Sherie hopes unlucky in love Anton can connect with one of the new girls that entered the villa on Friday.
She said: “There is no one in the villa at the minute who I would pair with Anton. He definitely hasn’t met The One but maybe one of the new Casa Amor girls might take his breath away. I do hope so.”
As they stood in the bathroom and Anton shaved his face, she asked: “Where did you get that razor from?” and when he replied she said: “No they’re mine.”
Anton apologised, saying he thought it was a “fresh” one, before promising to get her another new one.
