Love Island’s Sophie Piper and Connor Durman ‘in crisis talks’ over relationship

Love Island stars Sophie Piper and Connor Durman are reportedly having chess talks over their future together.

The lovebirds, who met on the sixth series of the ITV2 dating show, are still together but have "found it hard" carrying on their romance in the real world since leaving the famous villa, according to The Sun Online.

The news comes as fans of the show have noticed that Sophie and Connor are rarely seen together.

A source told the publication: "Connor and Sophie spent the night together at a hotel in London on Monday where they discussed the future of their relationship.

"They’ve both found it hard since coming out of the villa and are keen to keep things private while they figure out what direction things are going in.

"Connor has been finding the fame game difficult and is now planning to turn his back on it and throw himself into his coffee business."

The pair had been struggling to meet up due a one and half hour drive between them and are reportedly seeing each other once a week.

Rochelle Humes' younger sister Sophie and coffee bean salesman Connor were one of the earliest couples in the Cape Town villa this winter.

Their budding romance began during the first week of the show, with Connor instantly smitten with the glamorous gal.

Their relationship was hit by disaster when they were separated on the show when the islanders opted to save Sophie over Connor during a shock twist, and she decided to stay on in the villa alone.

However, they hooked up again when they both returned to the UK and they spent Valentine's Day together.

Connor insisted that things were going well with him and Sophie and discussed their future plans

Speaking to The Sun, he said: ""The way things are going I think it could get serious. We're not jumping ahead and just seeing how things are going, but it's all positive.

"In the future we definitely would live together, but we've not spoken about it because we've only been out of the villa a month or so."

Sophie is also rumoured to be the first "confirmed" contestant for the 2020 series of I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!

Daily Star Online has contacted reps for the couple for comment.
