Paige had initially shut down any prospect of a romantic connection, telling the girls, ‘Ollie’s such a nice boy but he’s not my type’.
However, when she probed him about what he did for a living, she discovered he wasn’t a farmer but a wealthy landowner.
Speaking in the Beach Hut, Paige had changed her tune, claiming she found it easy to flirt with him and there might be a shot at something more.
Twitter was awash with amused reaction from viewers, with hundreds sharing gold digger memes.

Ollie eventually coupled up with Paige by default, after none of the ladies wanted to couple up with him.
Taking to Twitter, viewers penned: ‘Ollie and Paige are coupled up you say? We can get rid of both of them in one vote you say? #LoveIsland

It was previously revealed that Love Island bosses have ‘no intention’ of axing Williams after he was exposed as a ‘big game hunter who posed with an array of dead animals he killed in Africa.’
Producers of the ITV2 series refuse to ‘bow down to the public on a moral issue’ as they don’t believe keeping Ollie on the show will affect viewing figures.
An insider told MailOnline: ‘It is highly unlikely Ollie will be booted off the series. He’s part of the lineup and already filmed the first episode – bosses see no reason to kick him off.’

They continued: ‘Love Island cast Ollie out of thousands of applicants and are sticking to their decision.
‘They’re hoping this will all blow over once the audience gets to know Ollie after seeing him on screen.’
A source close to Ollie previously denied that the star, who will make his debut on winter Love Island tonight, has hunted for sport after he posed next to a variety of dead animals.
In a statement the insider added: ‘It is categorically untrue to suggest Ollie is involved in hunting for sport.
‘Ollie is a passionate conservationist and worked with an anti-poaching unit in Mozambique.
‘Conservation is crucial to the survival of animals and as part of that work Ollie was involved in the culling of sick animals who were a threat to the health of the herd.
‘There is a very big and important difference between trophy hunting and the conversation work Ollie has previously been involved in.
‘At no point has Ollie organised or booked anybody to go to Africa to shoot game.’
Love Island viewers have been in uproar after photos of the heir to the 2,000-acre Lanhydrock estate in Cornwall emerged of him proudly posing beside a warthog, water buffalo and giant eland to promote his hunting business Cornish Sporting Agency.
It offered ‘unforgettable sporting experiences’ in Mozambique and South Africa, as well as bird shooting events in south west England.
The agency’s website was taken ‘offline’ in November 2018 but, according to Companies House records, Oliver Sebastian James Williams is still the company’s active director.
