Love Island Contestant Apologises For 'Being A B****' To Ex Lewis Capaldi
| Last updated
A Love Island contestant has apologised for 'being a b****' to Lewis Capaldi.
Paige Turley made the shock revelation during the opening episode of the new series of the hit reality dating show last night.
Speaking during her intro video, the 22-year-old claimed that one of the Scotsman's biggest tunes was, in fact, about her.
She said: "One of my ex-boyfriends is actually Lewis Capaldi. We dated for a year. According to the papers the song Someone You Loved was about me.
"I'm so sorry, I must have been a b***ch to you."
However, despite the breakup, she says they have remained very close friends.
She added: "Me and Lewis are still very, very friendly. You've seen his social media. He's a very witty, funny guy. So he'll probably make a total joke about it."
The hit show returned for the first ever winter series, with contestants landed in Cape Town, South Africa, in the hope of finding 'the one'.
One person, however, who will not be making an appearance is former host Caroline Flack, who was relieved of her duties following an assault charge last year.
Confirming the news on her Instagram, Flack wrote: "Love Island has been my world for the last five years, it's the best show on telly.
"In order to not detract attention from the upcoming series I feel the best thing I can do is to stand for down Series 6. I want to wish the incredible team working on the show a fantastic series in Cape Town."
She has been replaced by Laura Whitmore for the show's sixth season.
In a statement, ITV said: "ITV2 today announces that Laura Whitmore will host season 6 of Love Island. The show will launch on the channel on 12 January 2020.
"Laura will present the main show which airs nightly at 9pm on ITV2 as regular presenter Caroline Flack stands down for this series. Laura will also host Love Island: Aftersun, which will air on ITV2 live from London on Monday nights at 10pm.
"The first series of the year comes from a brand new location and villa in Cape Town where a host of new Islanders will try to win the hearts of each other - and the nation - in the ultimate search for love."
