Sophie Piper and Josh Ritchie came third on Love Island All Stars, the first spin-off show for iconic Islanders, and their natural connection won them hoards of fans.

After they left the villa with the rest of their co-stars such as Tom Clare and Molly Smith, Callum Jones and Jess Gale, Georgia Steel and Toby Aromolaran, and Georgia Harrison and Anton Danyluk, Sophie and Josh looked so loved up.

But are they still together now? What have they said about their relationship? Let’s take a look.

Are Sophie Piper and Josh Ritchie still together?

Sophie and Josh are still together! It seems they have officially become girlfriend and boyfriend!

Towards the end of March 2024, Josh was ready to take the leap with Sophie as he booked a luxurious room at the Down Hall Hotel & Spa in Bishop's Stortford.

It's here that Josh organised to have red balloons fill the ceiling and rose petals beautifully scattered around the bed with more petals that were carefully placed on top of the duvet to spell out ‘Will you be my GF?’.

In a video Josh uploaded to his Instagram Stories, he filmed Sophie in the room, wearing a comfortable green tracksuit set before saying “Look what we have here then.”

He panned to the bed where the question was written, before panning back to Sophie and saying “Thankfully, she said no.”

Fortunately for fans, he was completely joking. Sophie continued the joke by laughing and sarcastically told the camera “I don't think we're at that stage yet, I think there's a lot of stuff still that we're working out.'”

The pair both then broke out into laughter and the rest is history.

Love Island's Joshua Ritchie asks Sophie Piper to be his girlfriend

A week after All Stars wrapped, Sophie’s half-sister Rochelle Humes spilt while hosting This Morning that she’d even been introduced to Josh.

Rochelle explained: “I was like is it serious? Like how do these things work? I can’t talk to her whilst she’s in a villa so I’m like ‘Yeah but, do you actually like him?’ And then she said, ‘Can I bring him over on Sunday?‘“

During the Love Island final, Josh confessed he wanted Sophie to be his girlfriend but he wanted to introduce her to his family and friends first. If he’s met Sophie’s family, whom she’s extremely close with, we’re taking that as a sign they’ve made things official.

It looked like they also had time for a date night as well as meeting Sophie’s family the weekend after the show wrapped, as Sophie documented their weekend in London where they got to have a first proper date night together in a luxury hotel.

On the 2nd of March, Josh posted a sweet photo of the two of them simply with the caption ‘I adore you,’ and a red heart emoji.

Although they didn’t win All Stars, receiving 15% of the public vote, Sophie and Josh had a lot of support from the public and were declared ‘the real winners’ by the thousands of fans who backed them.

During the Valentine’s Day dates the couple didn’t hold back in expressing their feelings toward each other, with Sophie saying she had a ‘better time’ on the show second time around.
