“I’ve been struggling lately, really struggling with who I am, and have not been in a good place,” she said.

“I’ve given up alcohol, it’s been three weeks now because I’ve realised that I don’t like the person I become when I drink.”

She also said that her decision to cut out alcohol might not be a permanent one, but one she’s sticking to for now until she feels like she’s in a better place.

“Until I’m in a safe and happy place I want to stop drinking,” she said.

Paige hasn’t had the easiest time in recent months. Since leaving the villa she has split from fellow islander Adam Collard, in a very public breakup.

The split came about soon after pictures of Adam very publicly cuddling another woman as they left McDonald’s after a night out.

Since then, Paige has been working on herself.
