Paige Turley, 22, was said to have been the inspiration for Lewis’s number-one hit, Someone You Loved, and is now slated to feature on the upcoming winter series of the dating reality show.
The Sun reported that Paige, who appeared on BGT aged 14 in 2012, is set to jet off to South Africa to find love.
The newspaper quoted a source, who said: “Paige is looking for love, and so when the team from Love Island approached her, she decided to take up the opportunity.
Thanks to Lewis’s music, her relationship past has won her an awful lot of attention. So now she wants her relationship present to be in the spotlight.

It’s not just Paige who has been linked to the new series, which starts on January 12 on ITV2.
