Winter Love Island winner Finn Tapp has revealed all about his scramble to be with girlfriend Paige Turley after the UK was put into lockdown last month due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Finn and Paige are one of the villa couples self-isolating together but they were originally living apart, meaning Finn had to make the six-hour journey from his Milton Keynes home to Paige’s pad in West Lothian, Scotland – 400 miles away.

He opened up about his decision in a video on his YouTube channel, explaining, “I made the six hour drive up to Scotland. It was almost a given that something like this isolation period was going to happen.

“So I made the decision to drive up to Scotland so that if it happened, I could be isolating with Paige. I wanted to isolate with Paige - obviously we are quite used to it being isolated in the villa in South Africa at the start of the year, though obviously I don't have the pool or the views here.”

Finn then went on to reveal how the couple are coping in self-isolation, adding, “It's great to be with Paige. Obviously we're so used to it so it would be quite difficult to be away from each other for so long. And I think she likes that I'm here. I hope that she's happy."

Last week, Paige revealed the couple were self-isolating together when she shared a video of them in bed.

In the hilarious clip, the Scottish singer tried to teach her boyfriend some local lingo but it didn’t go to plan when she tried to explain a slang word for a sandwich, leaving Finn bewildered.

Siânnise Fudge and Luke Trotman are another Love Island 2020 couple spending lockdown together but she left fans worried about the status of their relationship this weekend after sharing a solo TikTok of herself dancing to the song Don’t Need Love by Gracey.

After sharing the video to her Instagram page, her followers took to the comments to share their concern that Luke wasn’t in the video but they needn’t have worried as the pair had shared a loved up selfie earlier that day.

Luke also shared his support for his girlfriend’s dancing, commenting, “Energy 🌊🔥.”

Aww, those two are bloomin’ adorable.
