LOVE Island’s Sophie Piper has confirmed she is ‘exclusive’ with Connor Durman – before admitting they haven’t actually discussed their relationship status.
The 23-year-old has continued to date Connor, 25, after reuniting outside the villa.
While things are going well, Sophie appears to have jumped the gun slightly about the status of their relationship as she told the Daily Star Online: “I would say that me and Connor are exclusive.”
But realising she should maybe have had that discussion with her beau before making it public, she quickly added: “Exclusive is a big word, I don’t actually think that we have really discussed it but we are dating and have been on quite a few dates.”
The couple were torn apart in the Love Island villa when the Islanders had to choose to send either Connor or Sophie home.
Connor was dumped from the villa, and while Sophie stayed a little longer, she failed to find romance with anyone else.
Connor shared a snap with Sophie last week, with them both posing for the picture while holding drinks.
He captioned it: “My valentine.”
It hasn’t all been plain sailing though, as Connor had to apologise to Sophie for his ‘racist’ comments to his ex.
The coffee bean salesman was accused of sending offensive messages to a girlfriend after she told him she’d bedded someone after their split.
Now the reality star has admitted he “messed up” in a heartfelt chat with Sophie – who has accepted his apology.
A source close to the pair exclusively revealed to The Sun Online: “He explained himself and was genuinely sorry, as it was said in anger over his relationship breaking down.
“If he’s honest, he was bitter at the time and it was in the heat of the moment. Sophie believes him and won’t punish him for his past.”
