Like many Love Islanders before him, Finley Tapp has gone down the career path most suited to someone who rose to fame by appearing half-naked on our TV screens every night. No not that - get your mind out the gutter. He’s launching a modelling career.

It’s been revealed that the Winter Love Island winner has been offered a pretty hefty sum by Nev Models in order to be on their books. He’ll be following in the footsteps of Jack Fowler, Danny Williams and Eyal Booker who are also on their roster.

Finn, who was a semi-professional footballer for Oxford City before appearing on the hit ITV show, admitted to The Sun Online that he was "looking forward to getting involved in some projects and (that) the news is a great early birthday present.”

Have a guess at how old he’s turning next month.

The real answer is probably more depressing than 2020 because Finn is currently only 20 years of age. Yep. 20 years old with more money and Instagram followers than we can ever hope to have in our lifetime.

A source told The Sun, “Finn’s really excited about what the future holds- after Love Island, he didn’t want to rush into anything, but this deal is perfect for him.”

Having said that, neither Finn nor his girlfriend Paige Turley are ones to shy away from a sponsored post. In fact, Finn’s worked with numerous brands since leaving the famous villa in February, including Jack Wills, His Column and Trending Travel to name but a few. Nice work if you can get it!

For her part, Paige has also been pretty busy since leaving the villa. Not only with her sponsored Instagram posts, but she’s also released her first track called Movin' Too Fast, which is a cover of the 1999 Artful Dodger track and tbh it’s a bit of a bop.
