Emotional Tapp who struggled to read the speech out loud exclaimed "That's because I can’t stand the thought of not being with you 24/7" after his partner Paige asked him why he was sobbing. How romantic!
So what plans do they have after the show, and how has their journey been so far? All details in the article.
The 20 years old Finley Tapp is a former professional footballer. The English footballer had joined Oxford City Football Club on July 19, 2019. Before this, he was in Milton Keynes Dons Football Club, which he had joined at the age of eight.
On the other hand, 22-years old Scottish Paige Turley has appeared on the series six of Britain's Got Talent. Turley, who was 14 years old at the time of audition, had sung Bon Iver's Skinny Love, making the show presenters Anthony McPartlin and Declan Donnelly emotional.
The sixth series of Love Island begun from January 12, 2020. Paige entered on the first day of the show along with other contestants while Finn entered from the fifth day along with Connagh Howard.
Before the entry of Finn, Paige was initially paired with Ollie Williams. However, Williams left the show after realizing that he still cared about his ex-girlfriend, Laura Nofer, who he dated for 18 months before splitting in 2019.
After Finn's entrance, both have chosen each other in the task requiring partner support. Moreover, Finn and Paige also won the couples quiz, which required knowing personal details about their partner. They also later won the Oktobersesh challenge, where the contestants were seen throwing beers and pretzels at each other.
Both won yet another game called Girl Racers in which blindfolded Finn guided Paige. Despite recoupling and other contestants choosing Finn and Paige for the date, both have stayed together throughout the series.

"My mum told me yesterday 'you have fallen hard, haven’t you?' And I guess mums are always right after all so Paigey I want you to know I love you."
