Love Island's Finley Tapp has seemingly found love in South Africa with Paige Turley – here's what we know about the 2020 islander.
He's already insisted he's keen to make things work with Paige outside of the villa, but what else do we know about Finn away from the show?
Here’s the lowdown on the Love Island star….
Finley is a 20-year-old Recruitment Consultant from Milton Keynes whose claim to fame is that he’s a semi pro footballer for Oxford City.
The sportsman has a contract with the club but apparently didn't tell them he was headed for South Africa in January.
When he entered the show, someone on the club's Twitter account assured followers: "The club was not aware Finn Tapp was going on Love Island - this is normal protocol for all contestants. We understand and wish Finn luck on the show."
You can follow Finley on Instagram @finn_tapp, where he began the show with almost two thousand followers and now has a staggering 386k at the time of writing.
He typically posts photos of himself smouldering for the camera with a bottle of champagne in hand, or snaps of him mid-action on the football field.
It’s also clear he works out regularly, if his chiselled six pack is anything to go by.
The footballer was in a two-year relationship with Fashion Retail Graduate Charlotte Kirkup before he decided to join Love Island, apparently ending things shortly before he flew to South Africa – according to Mirror Online.
An insider told the site in January: "They had a wonderful summer together and partied in Ibiza on holiday with friends. The break-up was very recent."
Before joining the villa, Finley said he’s “a relationship kinda guy” so is looking for a girl to leave with.
He said he was on the lookout for a girl “who is fun and outgoing and someone who can make me laugh," – which he's 100 per cent found in singer-songwriter Paige.
