LOVE ISLAND star Paige Thorne has shown off her “side bae” with a series of sexy new pictures on Instagram.
The 25-year-old former islander, who appeared on the ITV2 show in 2022, stripped down for a chill day in a gray Calvin Klein sports bra and trackies for a series of sultry selfies.
Captioning the pics “selfie Sundays and my side thing”, the Welsh stunner looked gorgeous as she stared down the camera on her gray sofa.
Then she revealed her “side thing” to me an adorably huge teddy bear who seems to be particularly cuddly for a perfect day in.
The star was praised by her fellow reality stars, with co-star Tasha Ghouri declaring her an “angel” while Danica Taylor declared her “Fit as”.
Fans clearly felt the same, with one telling her: “I used to think Gareth bale was the best thing that Wales produced , then I watched love island and realized how wrong I was.”
While another said: “who needs men when you have oversized teddy bears?”
Paige, who split from her Love Island boyfriend Adam Collard last October, has been feeling brighter and better than ever after admitting she was quitting drinking after struggling mentally.
“I’ve been struggling lately, really struggling with who I am and have not been in a good place,” she told The Sun Online. “I’ve given up alcohol, it’s been three weeks now, because I’ve realized that I don’t like the person I become when I drink.
“So until I’m in a safe and happy place I want to stop drinking.”
She later added: “I don’t believe in fairytales any more. I don’t think they exist. I want to stay single, focus on myself and no more boy drama this year.”
She added: “You’ve got to love yourself, otherwise nobody else will.”
However fans are hoping she may get together with another islander, Greg O’Shea, who won the show alongside Amber Gill in 2019.
Love Island returns tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
