Love Island winter 2020 couple Sophie Piper and Connor Durman split during lockdown.

Sophie Piper and Connor Durman quickly fell for each other on Love Island’s winter series in South Africa at the start of the year, but they’ve split just six months later.

The couple kept their relationship low-key after the series ended, keeping fans guessing as to whether they were actually an item, but things apparently “fizzled out” during the pandemic.

Connor was booted from Love Island before Sophie, but she chose to stay.

A few weeks later when Sophie too was dumped from the villa, the couple reunited on a few occasions but rarely took to social media to flaunt their romance.

A source told the tabloids: “Things just fizzled out. They never even went official.

“It just didn’t have a chance to get started because of lockdown and they both agreed it was better to just stay friends.”

Connor has stayed in touch with fellow Love Island star Callum Jones since leaving the villa, regularly meeting up in Manchester.

Meanwhile, Sophie has been using her increased social media following to team up with fashion and beauty brands on Instagram.
