We wouldn't mind playing a game of footie with this hottie

It's no secret that the winter edition of Love Island doesn't quite, erm, shine as bright as its summer counterpart. We don't know what it is; maybe it's because it's January and we're all poor AF after the festive period and don't need to watch a bunch of hotties lounging about in the sun all day. Wait, that's exactly it, isn't it? Fingers crossed they'll scrap it permanently in place of the far more entertaining All Stars; there's definitely enough Islanders for at least three more seasons, SURELY?

Say what you want about the winter Love Islands (although we think we covered it), but both winter Love Island 2020 and winter Love Island 2023 gifted us with some seriously iconic Islanders, including Shaughna Phillips, Siânnise Fudge, Samie Elishi, Tanya Manhenga and Finn Tapp.

And now a moment for this Love Island zaddy...

One of the very first winter Love Island bombshells, the series 6 Islander swiftly coupled up with Paige Turley in the OG South African villa. They then went on to win the thing and date for three years after, before deciding to call it quits (boo). BUT, they're set to reunite on our screens this month for Celebrity Ex on the Beach and we smell an iconic recoupling (maybe).

Who is Finn Tapp?

Finn Tapp is a former recruitment consultant turned footballer and reality star. He is best known for appearing on Love Island in 2020.

How old is Finn Tapp?

He was born on 9 November 1999, which makes him 24 years old (despite those serious zaddy vibes).

How tall is Finn Tapp?

He is 6ft1, which is rather short by Love Island standards today (joking – but sorry, Casey).

What season of Love Island was Finn Tapp on?

Finn was cast as an early bombshell on Love Island series 6 (the first winter edition in South Africa) in 2020, just ahead of the pandemic.

Are Finn Tapp and Paige Turley still together?

The official answer to that is no. The couple called it quits in April 2023 after three years of dating – which is still monumental by Love Island standards. However, with their upcoming joint appearance on celebrity Ex on the Beach looming, the rumour mill is churning out reunion rumours.

What is Finn Tapp doing now?

He is still playing football and is a defender for Banbury United. He also models for Fashion Nova and is obv living that boujie influencer life. Since he recently starred on Celebrity Ex on the Beach with his ex, Paige, he's obviously not had enough of reality TV life.

Who does Finn Tapp play for?

The footballer is signed to Banbury Utd. Before you ask, we've got no clue, so please don't ask us any further questions.

Have Finn Tapp and Paige Turley reunited?

Neither Islander has suggested a reconciliation, but we do know they both filmed episodes of Celebrity Ex on the Beach together last year. Said episodes will air in March 2024, and we're keeping our fingers crossed that they've worked things out and are just keeping it quiet from, well, us.

Who has Finn Tapp dated?

Since his split from Paige Turley, Finn sparked romance rumours with Married at First Sight Australia star, Tamara Joy after they were spotted together in December 2023. Tamara appears alongside both Finn and Paige for the upcoming series of Ex on the Beach, as if you didn't already have enough reasons to tune in.

Does Finn Tapp have Instagram?

He does, and you can follow him at: @finley_tapp.
