Love Island: Sophie Gradon admits that she told boyfriend Tom Powell she "loves" him too when he dropped the L-bomb.

Sophie and Tom had a bit of a rocky romance in the villa, but when Tom was voted out by the public, they had just got their relationship back on track. So much so, that Tom told Sophie he was in love with her before he left, he said: "Yes, I did [tell Sophie I love her]. I realised weeks ago. I'm just crazy about her."

Well, turns out the feeling is mutual!

While we didn't actually see Sophie tell Tom that she loves him too, she has now confessed that she did.

Sophie's admission comes after she threatens to quit Love Island to reunite with Tom. She tells her islanders she doesn't want to "ruin" things with Tom and decides that he really is the guy for her.

In the beach hut, Sophie then admits that she DID tell Tom she loves him too, when he had said he had loved her. She explains: "I'm not strong enough. Before Tom left he said 'I love you' and I said 'I love you' back. I just really want to give him a hug. I don't want to do something that I regret and ruin my relationship with Tom. I want him."

At the time of Tom's exit, Sophie had chosen to stay on the show and vowed to win Love Island for Tom.

However, since then Sophie has appeared to strike up a new romance with Katie Salmon. Katie entered the villa shortly after Tom's departure, and made it clear she fancied Sophie. She invited Sophie on a champagne date with her, and the girls discussed their mutual attraction for each other.

Katie seemed to sway Sophie, and not only did Sophie tease that she was "single" (despite being official with Tom), she and Katie shared a brief kiss.

Now, though, Sophie seems to be having second thoughts about Katie. Katie had chosen Sophie to re-couple with, and despite Sophie seeming genuinely pleased with her choice, she is now worried about how her relationship with Tom has been affected.

Sophie had kissed newcomer Katie Salmon.

The islanders are made to take part in game which involves reading tweets posted by the public. One criticises Sophie for moving on from Tom in the same way Terry has done so with ex Malin, and she struggles to come to terms with it.

She says: "Right, that's it for me. I'm done. Yeah, I'm going to ask [if I can leave]. I cannot do this, it's just too much of a mind-f***. It's not worth it. It's not worth losing Tom over. I can't lose Tom, I can't."

Has she already blown her chances, though?

Tom has been watching Sophie on the show, and after she kissed Katie, he tweeted that he was "done" with their relationship. When asked by a fan if he could forgive Sophie, Tom replied: ""Don't think I've got a choice tbh #MovedOn."

What will he make of her latest comments?!
