Turley, who dated Bathgate chart sensation Capaldi before finding fame on the reality dating show, has been discussing tying the knot during lockdown - and she’s keen for an island wedding.

Turley revealed in an Instagram Live post: "I keep saying we’re getting married in the Maldives.

"I’m having two wedding dresses. He’s like, 'Do I need to be in a kilt?' I’m like, 'Yeah that’s a Scottish wedding'."

Paige Turley dated Lewis Capaldi before finding fame.

The 22-year-old revealed recently she feels Tapp is marriage material, and she is keen to have kids together.

She said: "Our sense of humour is very similar so we can mock each other – but in a loving way. ‘He’s an amazing cook too and he’s just so caring and I love seeing how he is with his family. He’s such a family guy. ‘

"Family and marriage is definitely going to come in the future but we are just going to enjoy our time together now."

Last week, the Evening News reported that Capaldi opened up about his split from Turley during a live chat with radio host Ryan Seacrest.

Chatting on the iheartRadio live stream about the inspiration behind his chart-topping ballad Hold Me While You Wait, 23-year-old Capaldi said: "It’s a song about a lady who I was in a relationship with and it was going smooth, as smooth as you can imagine, as smooth as a ski slope.

"And one day, she said, 'Lewis, can I have a quick word?, and I said, 'Of course, my darling. What is it?'

"And she said to me, 'Lewis … slight issue with me and you as a couple. I find you revolting in every way possible, and you are really a disgusting human being. And I would like to leave you, effective immediately'.

Turley was crowned joint-winner of Love Island in January alongside Tapp.
