Love Island All Stars has quickly become a Love Island history lesson. Each week, a new bombshell from deep in the Love Island archives slo-mo walks through those doors, and while some are instantly recognisable, some do require a quick refresher.

One of the latest All Star bombshells is Sophie Piper, and it was giving major throwback vibes. Love Island 2020 was definitely memorable, and not just because it was the first ever winter series of the show. Obviously, we remember Shaughna Phillips’s ‘Congrats, hun’ and winners Paige Turley and Finn Tapp, but after all these years some Islanders have slipped through the cracks.

Sophie is best remembered for her romance with Connor Durman, not to be confused with Connagh with a G, Connagh Howard.

So here's a refresher on the OG Connor, AKA the cheeky chappy and Coffee Bean Salesman, Connor Durman.
