Paige and Finley met during the first-ever Winter Love Island series in 2020. They were crowned winners of the series and were together for three years before they ended their relationship.

Break-up rumours swirled after a source told The Sun that the reality stars decided to go their separate ways.

They said: “It wasn’t forever in the end. Paige and Finn had a really good run, but they are still super young.

“Paige is spending some time back in Scotland while she works out what she wants to do next,” the source shared.

Finley is reportedly planning on travelling following the break-up.

The Love Island stars were living in Manchester together but have since moved out of their home.

Paige also confirmed to host Maya Jama that she is not ready to date yet and isn’t looking for anyone new.
