LOVE Island's Paige Thorne hinted at Gemma Owen and Luca Bish's split FOUR weeks ago with tell-tale comment.
The ITV2 dating show star, who rose to fame this summer, said one of the couple's was "faking" it in a podcast appearance last month.
Paige, 24, opened up about her Love Island experience on the Saving Grace podcast four weeks ago, after her split from Adam Collard.
The newly-single star hit out that out of the four remaining couples at the time – one of them had already secretly split.
On the podcast, posted in October, she was asked by host and TikTok star Grace Keeling: "Who is the fakest couple?"
Paige spilled the tea, replying: "All I’m going to say is, there are how many couples left, three? Really there are only two."

"Many of you have been on this journey with us from the beginning and I want to thank you for your continued support as a new chapter starts."
Gemma sparked concern last month of trouble in paradise with boyfriend Luca after failing to mention him in her interview with Tatler.
And this week fans noticed that she wasn't by Luca's side as he attended various events.
Gemma and Luca remained together throughout their whole time on Love Island but decided to not make things official until they came home.
