Paige, 25, joined best pal Shaughna Phillips on Love Island’s Aftersun last night, where she opened up about her split for the first time.

Host Maya Jama asked her: “Paige, sadly you and Finn did break-up recently, can we ask what happened? Is it a secret?”

The Scottish babe replied: “No no, we’re still good friends, I think we drifted apart.

“We did lockdown together, any struggle that we could have faced, we were facing.

“It was tough, but we are still good friends.”

Maya added: “Are you looking now?,” to which Paige confirmed she is happily single and taking a break from the dating scene.

She said: “Oh no, not for a while.

“But if he [Paige] was back in then there’d be trouble – we’re not having an Adam Collard bombshell situation.”

Maya added: “So he’s banned from being a bombshell,” with newly-single Paige replying: “Yeah…yeah.”

HOAR exclusively revealed in April that singer Paige has already moved out of the apartment she shared with former football Finley in Manchester and has headed back to her hometown in Scotland.

A source at the time told us: “Paige and Finn had a really good run, but they are still super young and decided it wasn’t forever in the end.

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

Last May Paige denied that they had split after going into hospital for minor surgery.

Paige shared a photo from her hospital bed on Saturday and said: “Have a few messages asking if everything is okay as we have been a little quiet on socials this week.

“Just a little update. I had to go in for a v minor surgery. So I’m currently on bed rest whilst Finn plays nurse bless him.”

After winning the show in 2020, the pair moved in together and lockdown hit.

A year after winning the show, Finn spoke about wanting to spend the rest of his life with Paige.

He told us: “Paige is deffo the one, I’m deffo going to be the one to pop the question.”

“I’ve got a plan, I’m not putting a timescale on it, it’s when the time is right.

“But within the next two years or so.

“Paige and I have always spoken about an abroad wedding, we might do two weddings, a close intermediate wedding with family and then a big party here with everyone.”

Paige said she and Finn ‘drifted’ apart but are still friends
