Finn Tapp has revealed that he clashed with producers behind the scenes during his time in the Love Island villa.
The 20-year-old lost his temper after the Headlines Challenge, as his now-girlfriend Paige Turley was led to believe he had his “head turned” in Casa Amor.
Speaking on BBC Radio 1’s The Reality Tea Podcast, Finn said: “If I’m honest, I had a few little tiffs with the producers just because I was angry.”
“I said to the producer, I said, ‘This is…’ Yeah, I wasn’t happy. I wasn’t happy.”
“They didn’t really say too much. I was just like, ‘You know what I was like in there. Like how did you..’ And they were just like, ‘Oh, well, obviously it’s just like the headlines and da, da, da.'”
“It was a shame because that could have affected me and Paige that could have, you know?”
“But it didn’t luckily, and luckily Paige soon sort of found out.”
The headline came from a Heart article, which acknowledged Finn having a “cheeky chat” with Natalia Zoppa during the early days of Casa Amor.
“When you’re in Casa Amor, you think about how you conduct yourself, and I thought I’d done really well in there,” he continued.
“And then when the headline come out that apparently my head had turned, I was like, ‘What? Like, what’s been shown?'”
“If they actually copied and pasted some bits like, I was like, how have they got this?”
“And then I come out and obviously all the support is like his head didn’t and Paige needs to realise. And then I realised, okay, it was just a dodgy headline,” he added.
The news comes after the footballer opened up about his plans to propose to Paige.
