Love Island star Finn becomes honorary Scot while on lockdown with Paige


It was only a matter of time.

Love Island star Finley Tapp is well on his way to becoming an honorary Scot thanks to his lockdown in West Lothian.

The 23-year-old Oxford City footballer is holed up for the quarantine period in Fauldhouse with other half Paige Turley, Scotland’s first ever champion of the ITV reality show.

The loved-up pair couldn’t bare to be apart when strict social distancing rules were introduced at the end of March, so Finn tore up the road to be with his beloved at her family home.


This weekend we got the strongest sign yet that Finn’s Scots lass is having a good effect on him, by introducing him to some of the finer features of the local culture.

Finn, from Milton Keynes, shared a series of hilarious insights into how his weekend was going with Twitter followers yesterday.

Making himself useful to his potential in-laws, he got down to some fence painting in the garden, and got extra energy from infamous alcopop Dragon Soop, which Scots MSPs have slammed in the past for its potent mix of booze and caffeine.


Finn joked: “When you have fences to paint at 12, but getting mad wae it at 3”

After warming up his palette, Finn then moved on to the other drink that has become synonymous with Scots whether we like it or not, as he tucked into a bottle of Buckfast.

Emboldened by his afternoon bevvy session, Finn then revealed he’s got good taste in comedy shows, as he quoted a viral scene from BBC Scotland mockumentary, Scot Squad.

Uploading a snap of himself looking sultry, he asked “bam or no bam?” quoting a hilarious sketch from the hit comedy, which has an army of fans north of the border.

After refusing to be drawn on the age old Celtic and Rangers divide when questioned by fans, Finn diplomatically opted for Partick Thistle.

And that was enough for Scot Squad creator Joe Hullait, who officially decreed Finn to be “no bam”, a result which Finn is sure to be chuffed with.

After a whirlwind romance following their time in the South African villa, Finn and Paige chose to spend lockdown together when it was announced on March 23.

Over the past few weeks they’ve treated fans to insights into how they’re spending their time, including walks in the country with Paige’s pooch, Kev, and loads of video chats with pals.

The duo, who took part in the first ever winter edition of Love Island in South Africa,  will remain the crowned winners for longer than they initially expected.

The summer version of the show has been cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Kevin Lygo, Director of Television at ITV, said last week: “We have tried every which way to make Love Island this summer but logistically it’s just not possible to produce it in a way that safeguards the wellbeing of everyone involved and that for us is the priority.

“In normal circumstances we would be preparing very soon to travel out to the location in Mallorca to get the villa ready but clearly that’s now out of the question.”
