Lewis Capaldi breaks silence on ex’s Love Island appearance with hilarious dig

Lewis Capaldi has finally broken his silence on his ex-girlfriend Paige Turley's appearance on Winter Love Island.

The Scottish crooner, who dated Paige for a year during college, revealed his former flame failed to let him know she was set to enter the villa.

The 23-year-old, claimed the aspiring singer only landed the ITV2 slot because of his name and so he wants a share of the £50,000 prize fund if she wins.

"The prize is like £50,000 and I'll be like "Well, listen. They asked you to go on it right I'm not saying I'm the reason but also… slide me two grand," during a recent radio interview.

However, despite his quip, the West Lothian native confessed he'll be tuning in and rooting for the aspiring singer.

Speaking on The Edge in New Zealand, he admitted the split was amicable, but he would have like "a head's up" prior to her villa entrance.

"I've known her for years, we were 18 when we first met, 19 when we first started going out and 20 when we finished going out.

"It was fairly amicable, the split. She never told me she was going on the show. That would have been a nice heads up! But I mean fair play, good luck to her.

When asked if he'll be tuning in, he replied: "I'll be f***ing watching it!

"Aye, I'll be watching it and going "Go on Paige! Come on, come on!" And when she's on a date with a boy I'll go "Come on! Kiss him!" I hope she wins."
