Love Island’s Sophie Piper reveals why she didn’t gossip about sister Rochelle Humes in the villa

She kept schtum about her sis (or did she?)

Love Island's Sophie Piper and Rochelle Humes

Before the current crop of Love Island contestants entered the villa, it was revealed they have some high profile connections.

Not only did Paige Turley once date Lewis Capaldi (and reportedly have a number one song written about her) but Sophie Piper’s sister was none other than The Saturdays singer turned TV presenter Rochelle Humes.

While Paige wasted no time in informing the whole villa about her very famous ex, it seemed Sophie was keen to keep celeb sister on the down low as we didn’t see her mention Rochelle during her time in the villa at all.

Well, now that Sophie’s back in the UK, we thought we’d ask her about why she kept quiet about Rochelle on the show and she revealed all.

It turns out she actually did tell the other Islanders about her lookalike sister but the scenes weren’t aired for some reason.

Sophie and fellow dumped Islander Leanne Amaning revealed it was common knowledge in the villa during their appearance on heat’s Under the Duvet with VOXI.

“We spoke about it. They just didn’t air it,” said Sophie.

Not fair, producers. We wanted all the tea about the Humes-Piper family.

And now that Sophie’s brother-in-law Marvin is getting back together with his JLS bandmates, she told us she can’t wait to see them on tour and revealed which Love Island pal she’ll be taking along with her.

She told us, “I’m so excited, honestly. I’ve been trying to keep my mouth shut about it. It’s my dream.”

“Nas [Majeed] thinks he looks like Aston and he keeps banging on about it so I’ll definitely have to take him,” she added.

Room for one more, guys?
