Love Island's Scott Van-der-Sluis hiding 'secret' from cast over romance with ex Islander

Scott Van-der-Sluis is hiding a secret from his Love Island co-stars and that is that his ex girlfriend just happens to be a former contestant on the show.

As the drama in the villa went up a few notches, with the girls turning on each other and Tyrique keeping Ella and Leah waiting on a decision over who he was going to pursue, Jess Harding, having won the She's A Keeper challenge, received a text telling her she'd be going on a date with a real footballer, the man in question being Scott.

Jess left the Love Island villa for her first meeting with Scott, with him joking that she definitely had 'WAG potential,' before she later conceded that he wasn't for her. However, while romance looks firmly off the cards for Jess and Scott, something he definitely has been involved with is 2022 Islander Paige Thorne. The Welsh paramedic left the show in fifth place last year, alongside Adam Collard, although the two didn't take long to split on the outside, after he was accused of cheating.

Sources claim that she and Scott dated for "a couple of months," with an insider telling The Sun: "It wasn’t serious with Paige and Scott but they had a great few months together. They met out on the party scene as Paige knows lots of footballers."

It won't be the first time an ex of another Islander has come into the villa. Last year, Gemma Owen was left in shock as her former boyfriend Jacques O'Neill entered the show as a late arrival. He was coupled up with Paige for weeks, before Adam came in and then Jacques chose to leave of his own accord.
