Love Island bombshell Scott secretly dated this iconic past islander

Didn’t see this coming…

New Love Island bombshell, Scott van-der-Sluis has already dated a previous islander.

Last night, Scott entered the villa and enjoyed a candlelit date with Jess but it’s not the first time he pulled an islander.

The 22-year-old League of Ireland footballer previously dated one brunette beauty from the ITV dating show.

Scott dated season eight contestant and one of the most iconic Love Islanders, Paige Thorne. The pair met out partying in the UK in 2020 and began dating shortly after that.

A source close to Scott told The Sun: “It wasn’t serious with Paige and Scott but they had a great few months together. They met out on the party scene as Paige knows lots of footballers.

“It didn’t end for any reason in particular, just one of those things. They were both young and not looking for anything serious.”

The League of Ireland goalkeeper left his contract in the hopes of finding love on the reality show.

Some reports say ITV have been trying to secure Scott for previous seasons but finally managed to pull him this time round.

He was raised by his Dutch mother and his brother, Jamie Reed is also well-known in the world of football.

However, we’ve adopted Scott for the time being as he’s currently living in Dublin while playing soccer for Shelbourne FC. The goalkeeper requested to take time off playing football to enter the Love Island villa.

He seems to be very comfortable in the villa already and his date with Jess last night looks promising so we can’t wait to see how the footballer gets on.
