Love Island winter 2020 winners Paige Turley and Finn Tapp have revealed the trick they used to get away with their bedroom antics in the villa, revealing in the process their beds had microphones attached!
Speaking to Heat about how they’d try and hide ‘doing bits’ from the producers, Finn and Paige said they’d try to cover the mics with pillows.
The reality TV star divulged the secret while chatting about how she still whispers in bed with Finn out of habit.
