At the start of the year, Paige Turley was crowned queen of the Love Island villa alongside Finn Tapp, and fans have been loving their Instagram updates ever since.

Whether it's a look at their lockdown workout routines, or a glimpse at their fancy new home, followers are always grateful for an Instagram Story insight.

Now, Paige has announced she'll add subtitles to every post, following a number of comments revealing fans couldn't understand her strong Scottish accent. This is kind of amazing.

Thanks to her West Lothian accent, Page received a number of comments on her 'Speed Dating With Cosmopolitan UK' video about her voice. One person wrote, "Jheeez this needs subtitles ASAP!" while another added, "Anyone else native English speaker and has to rewind to work out what she's said 😅 love it."

On Monday, Paige revealed she would be subtitling all of her Instagram Stories, in case people were hard of hearing or wanted to understand her better. She told fans, "Today's weather called for a lazy day. It has consisted of sticking on party lashes, face masks & pulling the couches together for cocktails."

Before she later added, "Ps yes I am subtitling myself for those who don't understand my accent or for those hard of hearing followers."

Nice touch, Paige!

The subtitles come as Finn recently revealed to The Scottish Sun that he was keen to get engaged soon, revealing, "I’m not going to wait – I want to propose soon! I don’t want to say a timescale as it’s going to be a surprise. Now all I have to do is ask for Paige’s dad’s blessing! I’ve got a few ideas about how I’d propose."

Good job he can understand her accent, eh?
