Love Island viewers confused over Paige’s pet name for Dami as shes accused of ‘flirting’

Love Island viewers were left feeling confused on Friday night’s episode of the popular ITV dating show as Paige Thorne appeared to give Dami Hope a very flirtatious pet-name.

The bubbly paramedic, 24, is currently happily coupled up with returning Love Island veteran Adam Collard, while Dami remains in a solid relationship with Indiyah Polack as the pair secured zero votes in Friday's episode and a spot in the final.

However this didn’t seem to stop Paige from dubbing Dami “Honeybuns” and “Babycakes” as she lounged in the garden with her partner Adam.

The couple were busy soaking up the sun when Dami came to sit with them, yet as Dami sat down, Paige could be heard calling him, "boyfriend" and "baby cakes" as well as "honey buns".

Laughing it off, Dami replied: ”I know, I have a label on my head now, this is the life I've chosen to live," in a direct reference to having professed his love to Indiyah.

"It's so exciting!" Paige giggled as she laid on Adam's lap.

It isn’t the first time Paige has used the flirty name “Honeybuns” while talking to her fellow islanders, with the Swansea stunner having previously called both partners Jacques O’Neill and Adam Collard by the name, while they were coupled up together.


The nickname is also the second time in recent weeks that Paige has expressed a a flirtatious intention towards Dami, after eagle eyed viewers noticed that she had picked Dami to “marry” during a game of Snog, Marry, Pie – as she said he was her “best friend out of the boys.”

With the name previously having held romantic connotations, many fans were left unimpressed by her decision to use it on Dami, with several taking to Twitter to air their thoughts as they speculated that there could be more going on between the pair.

"There’s definitely something going on with Paige and Dami #LoveIsland,” remarked one viewer.

Another then added: "Paige and Dami’s ‘friendship’ is getting a bit suspicious now #LoveIsland."

“Honeybuns ?! Baby cakes?! Paige, Dami is not your boyfriend,” wrote one disgruntled fan.

While another questioned: “Did this woman just call Dami honeybuns?”

Before a third chimed in: “If Paige honeybuns and babycakes Dami one more time? Is this woman actually mad…”

A fourth agreed, adding: “Why is Paige calling Dami “baby cakes and honeybuns” ITS WEIRD.”

Several more fans shared similar sentiments, with one even suggesting it was making them nauseous as they commented:“Hunnybuns! Baby cakes! Stop pls, I’m gunna be sick.”

While another simply wrote: “ “Honeybuns.” MAKE IT STOP.”

Love Island continues every night at 9pm on ITV2.
