Love Island winner Paige Turley considered keeping 50k cash prize for herself


LOVE Island’s Paige Turley has revealed she nearly considered keeping the 50k cash prize for herself as a joke.

The 22-year-old and Finley Tapp were crowned winners on Sunday evening and were each given an envelope one with money and one without.

Paige revealed she considered keeping the money as a joke

Paige ended up getting the one with the big cash prize and was asked if she wanted to keep it all to herself or share it as a test to see if the experience had been about love or money.

During the show, Paige instantly said she would share it with Finn but later admitted she did consider winding him up by keeping it.

She said: “I should have said ‘I’ll take the 50,000’ and share 5,000 with you! I would have made a joke (about keeping it), but I thought, ‘What if he seriously thinks that’s my answer?’ I just thought, I’m not going to even put my foot in it!”

The Scottish star also revealed she wont be sharing the money with her ex-boyfriend Lewis Capaldi.

The pair were crowned winners on Sunday evening

The chart-topper joked in January that he deserves some of the cash if she wins because he is the reason why she earned a place on the ITV2 show.

But Paige isnt having any of it, telling The Sun: Thats just Lewis, it comes as no surprise he said that. But I cant give him any money because once I pay off my debts therell be nothing left.

Meanwhile Paige and Finn are planning a move to Manchester together after Callum Jones sold them the dream.

She revealed: “I totally love Scotland. I’ve never had a reason to move away from it. I think Glasgow might be a bit rough for Finn.

“They’d eat him alive! Ha ha! I’m joking. I think it would be a bit unfair of me to take him away from his comforts.”
