The end is in sight and Love Island will reportedly draw its 2022 series to a close in just over a week. As for who will be there for the final, that's still up for debate, but Paige, an OG member of the line-up of Love Island contestants, still has a shot.


Paige hasn't had the easiest journey in the Love Island villa. She formed a connection with Jacques, but when he left the villa following a tense week for the pair after Casa Amor, she found comfort in new arrival Adam Collard.

Why did Paige Thorne want to take part in Love Island?

Speaking of why she decided to shoot her shot at love in the Mallorca villa, Paige said: "In Swansea there is just no one I can find. I’ve tried and there’s just nobody there anymore."

She added that she needed to "break out and broaden my horizons".

"Love Island just brings everyone together for me," she explained. "I haven't got to go out and I haven’t got to swipe. So, hopefully they can just come to me now!"

Is Paige on Instagram?

Yes, @paigethornex, but only just as she has only posted 30 times since joining - and many of them were done by her team. That being said, get ready for much more content from her when she leaves the villa as she will be greeted with 190k+ followers when she next logs in.

Has Paige left Love Island?

Some people expected that Paige would leave alongside Jacques, and rumours circulated she had indeed walked too but no, she is still in the villa - for now anyway.

What is Paige Thorne looking for in a partner?

Paige, who considers herself a "good cook" and "quite mumsy", said she'll "look after anyone that needs looking after." So much so, that she's confident her Sunday dinner would impress Gordon Ramsay himself.

The paramedic explained that, after she came out of a relationship, she was "just so done with guys so was like, 'Right, that's it. I’m going to focus on me'."

She added: "Then I was like, 'ok, I’m bored now, I’m lonely and I miss love and the connection and everything else.' I’ve been on a few dates but I just haven’t clicked with anyone." Well, looks like that could change soon.
