Love Island star Paige Turley, who has previously dated singer Lewis Capaldi, was in a relationship with an X Factor star just months before joining the show.

The singer, 22, has signed up for the upcoming series of Love Island, which is set to begin on January 12 in Capetown, South Africa.

But it has now been claimed that the blonde beauty was loved-up with Garry Greig, who previously appeared on the X Factor, just months before signing up for the show.

According to reports, Paige and Garry dated on and off for years before splitting for good in April 2019, just before she signed up to appear on the dating show.

Garry, who auditioned on the X Factor in 2010 and 2016, is said to have met West Lothian native Paige in 2012.

A friend of the couple told MailOnline: “Paige and Garry would go everywhere together. They’d known one another for years and enjoyed one another’s company.

“They were never really formal about their relationship but friends knew they were seeing one another.”

According to the publication, the couple even considered getting back together before she confirmed her place on Love Island earlier this week.

The source explained: “Their relationship was one that was pretty fluid and it was thought they’d get back together once they were both on home turf but that doesn’t appear to be happening now.”

Paige believes she’s the perfect Love Islander because she’s “naturally flirty,” and holds the belief that “it’s nice to flirt.”

The 22-year-old said: “I’m from a small village where everyone knows each other or has been an ex of someone. I want to find someone who is different, and outside the small village mentality.”

Describing herself in three words, Paige chose “loud, boisterous and fun,” and rated herself an eight when she’s feeling good.
