Toby, who appeared in series 7 of the show, asked Paige how she was adjusting to life after-Love the island now that she had been able to rewatch the show and the Islanders have shared their opinions on each other.

Addressing the comments about her character, Paige said: “People have to do what they have to do. If you have to talk shit about someone else to keep yourself relevant, that’s fine.

“That’s not my vibe. Why can’t you focus on yourself and all the positive things, instead of talking crap about someone else? I’m not about that vibe.”

She added: “I like to say I’m in my little positive bubble and I stick to it. People will just try to make it happen sometimes, but it’s impenetrable, so no.”

“I’m glad I got him to help me because otherwise I’d be a headless chicken. I’ve really enjoyed everything so far.”
