Why Lewis Capaldi is chasing a £2,000 share from Love Island’s Paige Turley

LEWIS CAPALDI is expecting a cut of his ex-girlfriend Paige Turley’s winnings should she go on to win Love Island.

The Scottish chart conqueror joked he should be due a percentage of the ITV2 dating show’s £50,000 prize money after hinting that 22-year-old Paige was probably only picked for the programme because they dated as teenagers.

The Someone You Loved singer said: ‘The prize is £50,000 and I’ll be like, “They asked you to go on it, right? I’m not saying I’m the reason but… slide me two grand”.’

Singleton Lewis explained there will be no hard feelings if she snaps up a hunk. ‘We were 18 when we first met, 19 when we first started going out and 20 when we finished going out,’ the 23-year-old Brit nominee spilled on a New Zealand radio show.

‘It was fairly amicable, the split. She never told me she was going on the show. That would have been a nice heads-up!’
