Evening Times - - NEWS - BY RUTH SUTER

ITV’s Love Is­land have con­firmed that Scot­tish Paige Tur­ley will be head­ing into the new South African villa for the first ever win­ter se­ries.

Singer Paige, who works at Forty Cloth­ing in Royal Ex­change Square, was in a re­la­tion­ship with Lewis Ca­paldi a few years ago af­ter they met at college in Mother­well. Their break up is thought to be in­spi­ra­tion for Ca­paldi’s hit Some­one You Loved. Speak­ing with the BBC Paige con­firmed that the pair are still good friends.

The 22-year-old also ap­peared on-screen at the age of 14 when she got to the semi-fi­nals of Britain’s Got Tal­ent, singing Skinny Love by Birdy. She has since ap­peared at a num­ber of high-pro­file gigs in­clud­ing Colours Clas­si­cal.

Paige will soon be seen on­screen with 11 other is­landers who will com­pete to find their match and win a £50,000 prize. Those who do not find love will be dumped from the villa.

The ITV re­al­ity dat­ing show will be pre­sented by Laura Whit­more, af­ter Caro­line Flack stepped down from the role af­ter she was charged with as­sault.

The show will re­turn this Sunday at 9pm on ITV.
