Love Island's Sophie Gradon and Tom Powell have Facetimed following her exit from the villa and will be meeting soon to discuss things.

Former Miss Great Britain Sophie, 30, quit the ITV2 show on Wednesday night in order to salvage her romance with Tom, who was eliminated the previous week.

She had feared her kiss with Katie Salmon, 20, may have jeopardized her bond with fitness instructor Tom, 24, who watched it unfold on TV.

Now back in the UK, Sophie tweeted: "To keep y'all updated, Tom and I Facetimed this morning. It was nice to see his beautiful face. Will be meeting to discuss things soon."

She added a love heart-eyed emoji.

We're so invested in their relationship we really hope she DOES keep us updated with every little step!

Tom hasn't tweeted about the chat.

Sophie's decision to quit the show came after the isladners played a game which involved tweets from members of the public. One tweet compared her unfavourably to Terry Walsh, who ditched eliminated girlfriend Malin Andersson in favour of Emma-Jane Woodham.

Speaking to Reveal after her exit, Sophie told us: "I'm not going to do a Terry on him. There's far too many feelings there between me and him. It's still an open book with me and Tom – in my eyes we are still in a relationship and I've got to go home and reconcile with him as soon as possible.

"I had said to Katie, which I don't think was actually shown, so it's probably going to be her word against mine, that I was always going to see Tom on the outside and that I wanted a chilled out, no pressure coupling up... she completely exaggerated to the other islanders that I kissed her - it was just a peck on the lips. It was nothing."

Love Island continues 9pm on ITV2.
