Love Island Australia’s Justin Lacko ‘flees his hotel room and cannot be found’

Channel Nine are furious.

Recently eliminated contestant Justin Lacko has ‘gone missing’ from his hotel room, reports claim. 

The 27-year-old male model was scheduled for a phone interview with The Kyle And Jackie O Show on Friday morning, but the hosts revealed he ‘had gone missing’.

Jackie ‘O’ Henderson revealed, ‘We were supposed to talk to Justin in 10 minutes’ time…and apparently he has gone missing and Channel Nine are furious.’ 

Shock jock Kyle raged, ‘Who cares [where he’s gone]? He’s probably gone around to find some blokes.’

‘I know he’s not gay, but everything about him is gay apart from the fact he wants men,’ he ranted on. 

Justin’s sexuality has continued to be a debate among viewers, and Kyle and Jackie O brought it up among themselves in this mornings segment. 

Jackie said, ‘Whether he’s gay or not, I don’t know.’ 

‘You’re in there to get laid, not in there to be the girls’ BFF!’ Kyle fired back. 

Newsreader Brooklyn Ross, who is openly gay, added: ‘He can’t expect us not to question his sexuality when he just becomes best friends with every girl in there. Like, he really didn’t try at all.’

Jackie added: ‘He did give up very quickly, didn’t he?’

Later on, Jackie asked producers for an update on the missing contestant.

‘They’re still trying to find him. He’s not in his hotel,’ the female producer replied.
