Paige Turley has opened up on her relationship with Finn Tapp and how she managed to break down her walls to let him in.

The 22 year old singer and former semi-professional footballer, 21, met on the very first winter series of Love Island back in 2020, where they instantly hit it off.

However, Paige, who recently celebrated their one year anniversary together, admitted she was quite "private" on the programme and it took some time for her warm to the idea of them being a solid unit.

During an exclusive chat with OK! Online about her upcoming virtual music event, the reality star explained: "Finn and I ask ourselves [what the turning point was] all the time.

What they most look forward to now is getting to know each other outside of life in lockdown as Paige said: "I think we're going to start our relationship afresh because we've just kind of been sitting in the house for like a year.

"So we're excited to have family and stuff.
