Connor Durman was brutally dumped from the Love Island villa after he and Sophie were voted the least favourite couple by the public. Sophie refused to leave with him and now Connor is facing racist accusations as some outrageous Whatsapp messages emerge.
Connor Durman is one of the first contestants to enter the first-ever Winter Love Island, the coffee bean salesman and Sophie Piper were the least favourite couple and their co-stars had to choose one of them to stay in the villa. After Sophie was saved, she decided not to follow Connor out as he made an early exit from the series. And she didn't look too bothered.
Now Whatsapp messages have emerged revealing Connor allegedly making insulting and racist comments about his ex-girlfriend, Stevie-Leigh whom he broke up with months before entering the villa. According to sources, the islander bombarded his ex with abusive messages branding her a 'sl**' and a 'sh**'.
The text messages also show Connor called his ex-girlfriend 'rank' and 'grim' for sleeping with a black man. Another text discussed our last year's favourite Islander Ovie Soko,which led him to tell Stevie that 'liking black boys' was 'such a put off'.
Friends of the make-up artist told the newspaper: 'It's disgusting that he can send messages like that given who he's paired up with on the show. His ex-girlfriend reckoned he was 'gaslighting' Sophie during his time in Love Island.
While in the villa, fans noticed how possessive and controlling was Connor towards Sophie. When dumped by his co-stars he said:
'I will wait for her. I’m in no rush to meet someone else, we definitely had that instant chemistry when we first met. I did have butterflies, she made me a bit nervous and that was a good nervous, obviously, I really liked her. I haven’t had that for ages.’
