The star-studded affair, hosted to pay tribute to the country’s most inspirational people, was held at Hopetoun House in South Queensferry.

With her arms wrapped around Finn on the red carpet, Paige wore a classic black jumpsuit, which flared out at the leg and featured spaghetti straps.

By way of accessories, the Scottish singer added a glamorous black clutch with beaded detailing and some matching stiletto heels.

Rugby player Finn opted for a fitted burgundy suit, made casual with some white trainers and a crisp white T-shirt underneath.

The couple were delighted to honour the 2021 Pride of Scotland winners at the event, which will be will broadcast on STV on July 27.

Speaking to Daily Record, Paige said: "We were at Pride of Britain last year but it was a virtual event so it is great to be in Scotland. This is Finn's first event in Scotland and we'll be here all week spending time with the family."

Finn added: "It's been a year of doom and gloom, it's great to be celebrating people who have done so much good."

The couple, who won the first-ever winter edition of Love Island last year, were in good company at the event, which honours the “unsung heroes” of the nation.

Former Sky Sports pundit Kirsty Gallacher hosted the event, alongside Nicky Campbell OBE, with the likes of Dame Arlene Phillips and her daughter Abi appearing on the red carpet.

The award winners included Sir Godfrey Palmer, the first Black professor in Scotland who discovered an essential brewing process, who won a Lifetime Achievement Award.

At 81 years of age, Palmer has also been a powerful voice in the Black Lives Matter movement, campaigning for much-needed change.

Elsewhere, 10-year-old Aaron Hunter, the world’s first child to receive the “heart in a box” transplant, won the Child of Courage award.

And the Young Fundraiser of the Year award was won by Brynn Hauxwell, 16, from Yell, who travelled nearly 1,700 miles last year by wheelchair to raise money for charity.

Delighted to see so many heroes receive the deserved accolades, host Kirsty said: “This show is all about celebrating the absolute best of Scotland, no matter how young or old, they have all gone to extraordinary lengths to help others."
