Dumped islander Connor Durman has revealed that the boys had discussed the leaked line-up for the current winter series shortly after the fun and games kicked off last month.
Talking about the moment he found out that Sophie was related to The Saturdays singer, the coffee bean salesman recalled: ‘I found out on day three in the villa, because the boys were talking about people who had been leaked before and she had been, and I didn’t even know.
‘So we did have a conversation, but we didn’t really talk about it a lot. So, I found out from the boys.’
Connor also revealed what it was like meeting Rochelle and the rest of the family.
‘I met Rochelle and Lili, her sister, at Aftersun, and they were lovely,’ he penned in his blog for Cheltenham Betting Offers.
‘It was nice to meet them, they were really nice. I am always quite nervous about meeting an other half’s family, but things went really well. I love JLS, I was really into them when I was younger. I really hope I don’t get too star-struck meeting Marvin!’
Asked if he’ll be getting free tickets to the JLS tour, Connor said: ‘I don’t know yet, we’re taking things slow, but hopefully it’ll work out.’
Luckily for Connor, Rochelle has already given Sophie and him the thumbs up to start a romance now they’re both out the villa.
Since being dumped from the ITV2 show, the pair have revealed they’re taking things slow as Connor promised to take her out on a date.
‘Are you gonna take me on a date?’ Sophie teased as they were interviewed on Aftersun.
‘I am. I need to get her number first. It’ll be so weird with no cameras, no mics,’ Connor replied.
Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
