Connor and Sophie had a bit of a whirlwind romance in the villa this year. After coupling up on the first day, they faced challenges when new boy Connagh showed an interest in Sophie and Connor allowed his jealousy to get the better of him. As a result, he lost the support of viewers and was dumped from the island on day 15.
Whilst many viewers figured that Sophie’s failure to leave the villa with Connor would spell an end to their romance, they defied expectations by rekindling their romance when she was voted out one week later on day 22. Since then, the couple seem to have been going from strength to strength as they get to know each other on the outside world.
Are Connor Durman and Sophie Piper still together?
A lack of social media posts and public appearances together in recent days has led some fans to wonder if things had fizzled out yet again. Whilst Connor has posted several photos with Sophie on Insta – including a Valentine’s tribute two weeks ago – Connor hasn’t appeared on Sophie’s feed at all since she left the villa.
But Connor insisted this week that their relationship is ‘going really well’ and that they are ‘meeting up all the time’ - although he also admitted that this is only once a week. It seems like Connor and Sophie are taking things slowly as he also revealed that they ‘haven’t had the ‘exclusive’ chat, but I'm not chatting to anyone else and I'm pretty sure she's not.’
Whilst many former Islanders have fallen victim to moving in together too soon after leaving the villa, it doesn’t look like that’ll be happening any time soon for Connor and Sophie as they’re enjoying doing things ‘naturally’ - but Connor has said that they ‘definitely would live together’ in the future.
