Paige said she decided to take part in the show because she can't find love in Swansea, 'I’ve tried and there’s just nobody there anymore.'

'I need to break out and broaden my horizons and Love Island just brings everyone together for me.'

'I haven't got to go out and I haven’t got to swipe. So, hopefully they can just come to me now!'

Paige promises to bring, 'positive energy'

The 24-year-old promises to bring, 'lots of bubbly energy,' to the villa.

She added, 'I am a good cook and I’m quite mumsy so I’ll look after anyone that needs looking after.'

'If I had to pick a signature dish, it would probably be a Sunday dinner.'

Paige explained, 'My roasties are up there, I think Gordon Ramsay would be impressed - I think he would be like, ‘9/10 or 10/10’.'

In her show interview, she was asked why she think she's single, and she said, 'I came out of a relationship and I was just so done with guys so was like, “Right, that's it. I’m going to focus on me.”'

'Then I was like, “Ok, I’m bored now, I’m lonely and I miss love and the connection and everything else.”'
