Love Island's Sophie Gradon has admitted she could see herself having a family with Tom Powell.

The marketing manager and former Miss Great Britain, 30, fell for fitness trainer Tom, 24, in the villa and, although they've had their ups and downs, they appear to be giving romance a go now the show has ended.

Speaking to Reveal last week, Sophie said: "It's very much on my agenda to have a family and be with the man I love. I could see myself and Tom having a family."

Sophie and Tom made their romance official in the villa but faced several challenges including the arrival of Tom's ex-girlfriend Emma-Jane Woodhams. They briefly split before reuniting, however Tom was then eliminated from the villa leaving Sophie behind.

Although he told Sophie he loved her and would wait on the outside, he then had to watch as she coupled up with Katie Salmon and shared a kiss.

That coupling, however, hit the rocks when a challenge revealed Sophie had been compared to Terry Walsh by one viewer. Terry being the islander who ditched his girlfriend, Malin, for Emma.

Tom shared this photo on 12 July.

So Sophie cooled things with Katie, who accused her of "f**king with [her] emotions" and hurting her feelings, to salvage her romance with Tom. She then quit the show to return to the UK and see him, saying everything with Katie had just been part of a game plan to win.

Sophie told us after she left: "I just want to get back to him and put my arms around him."

She added: "When Katie came in, I saw it as my opportunity. So yeah, I was playing a game, but whatever. I wanted to win it for Tom. I understand he might be confused, but it was all about me and him at the end of the day. He is everything."

Now back in the UK, it seems like everything between Sophie and Tom is great as he shared a photo of them cuddled up in bed together after bringing her home to Wales.
