Paige Thorne has responded to criticism from her the island of love co-stars that she wasn’t “very nice” behind the scenes.
During her time on the show, the 24-year-old paramedic had a rocky relationship with Jacques O’Neill before leaving the show.
However, it seems there has also been some tension between Paige and the female islanders, as bombshells Coco Lodge, Nathalia Campos, and Danica Taylor have all slammed Paige for her so-called “mean girl” behavior.
Paige has now responded to comments on former islander Toby Aromolaran’s podcast and YouTube channel Fancy a cat?.

Toby, who appeared in Series 7 of the show, asked Paige how she was adjusting to life after-the island of love now that she has been able to rewatch the show and the islanders have shared their opinions on each other.
Responding to comments made about her character, Paige said: “People have to do their thing. If you have to talk about someone else’s shit to stay relevant, that’s fine.
“That’s not my vibe. Why can’t you focus on yourself and all the positive things, rather than say shit about someone else? I’m not about this atmosphere.”
She added: “I like to say that I’m in my little positive bubble and I stay firmly inside. People just want to try to burst it sometimes, but it’s impenetrable, so no.”

Toby has warned Paige that ‘a lot of people will try to drag you down’ after she found fame and success placing fifth on the hit ITV2 dating show with bombshell Adam Collard.
Paige admitted that Adam helped her navigate the more difficult aspects of being in the spotlight.
“It’s really overwhelming,” she shared, “but Adam was absolutely brilliant because he’s done it before, so he took it under my wing and helped me. It was good.
“I’m glad I had him to help me because otherwise I’d be a headless chicken. I’ve really enjoyed everything so far.”

Paige’s comments come after Danica revealed that she would have liked to call Paige about her on-air behavior, particularly when Paige seemed unhappy with the decision to save Danica over Antigoni Buxton.
“I would have liked to say, ‘Wait, you know what that does to me? I didn’t do anything wrong,'” Danica explained to OKAY!. “And you openly say things across the foyer to insinuate like, ‘What is this, why is Danica here?’, but again, I had time to get past that. ”
Nathalia also claimed that Paige made a series of “mean” comments behind the scenes, while Coco criticized Paige in a TikTok video.
the island of love airs on ITV2 and is available for catch-up on ITV Hub and Britbox.
