It was long rumoured that Sophie Piper was set to appear on the winter version of Love Island, AND the 2019 summer version before that, so when she was confirmed as a new Islander for the show, there was no surprise.

But everyone has since been waiting for her older sister Rochelle Humes to comment on Sophie's latest venture and she has FINALLY broken her silence.

After the person running Sophie's account uploaded an official picture of Sophie posing for promo for the show, with the caption, "YOU GUESSED IT! Our girl Soph is heading to Cape Town for Winter @loveIsland ☀️ We are all so excited! Who’s going to be watching on Sunday and joining Team Soph!?", Rochelle quickly sent her support.

The former The Saturdays singer and current This Morning presenter wrote, "Good luck baby sis. Bring us back a keeper."

The 21-year-old was announced as part of the new line-up on Monday, alongside many hunky menfolk, including Callum Jones, Connor Durman and Mike Boateng – any or all of whom may catch Sophie's eye.
