Love Island’s Sophie and Connor will come face to face for the first time after she didn’t leave the villa with him – The Sun

LOVE Island's Sophie and Connor will come face to face tonight for the first time after she failed to leave the villa with him.

Last week when the coffee bean salesman got the boot he took a swipe at Sophie for staying in the villa.

She stayed on the dating show and said she was open to get to know new Islanders – even enjoying dates with Wallace and Luke M.

And now after Sophie also got kicked out the couple will face an awkward reunion on tonight's AfterSun.

But Connor has revealed that he's excited to see her and posted on Instagram: "Proud of "sophpiper_ and can't wait to see her."

When quizzed by Laura Whitmore on AfterSun last week if he thought she would walk when he left, he admitted: “Yeah I did have a gut instinct that Sophie would stay.


He continued: "But I hope in a weeks’ time if she has no connection with anyone that she does leave. I will be waiting for her.”

He added:  “But I understand because it’s such a cool experience in that villa.”


However he didn't seem to convinced he will be with Sophie again as he later admitted: “I will wait for Sophie and see how things pan out but I don’t expect her to wait around really.”

Discussing his shock exit, he said:  "It's took time to process but I’m happy with how I left and I'm leaving on a good note. As sad as it is.

"It was horrible but at the same time I had it in my head that whatever was going to happen I was going home."

The 25-year-old also admitted that watching Sophie in the villa was "hard" but that he is choosing to remain positive.

Connor previously acknowledged that Sophie's "head could be turned" but that he wanted her to "enjoy the experience".

"It’s a once in a lifetime thing. I wouldn’t have any grudges against her. I do just want her to be happy," he said, adding that he will be waiting for Sophie on the outside: "I’m in no rush to meet someone else."

Essex native Connor had been unable to hide his jealousy during his time in the villa, and lashed out at Sophie for her passing comments about the hot new bombshells.

Just days later, he erupted again when Sophie goaded him over another two bombshells and joked they were her type on paper.

He then came under fire from Love Island fans who claimed he was "controlling".

The comparisons came in full force during the truth game – with producers cutting to Connor glaring at welsh model Connagh and Sophie Piper every time they answered a question.
