Love Island: Sophie Gradon has hit back on Twitter after being branded "fake" on the social media site.

One user called Sophie out for lying about her intentions with Katie Salmon, prompting Sophie to respond. She admitted she made a mistake when it came to coupling up with Katie for the sake of winning, but assured her followers boyfriend Tom Powell is her "priority" now.

During her time in the villa, Sophie had been coupled up with Tom from the get go. The pair's romance blossomed and they went on to make it official, but ended up splitting and reuniting as things hit a rocky patch.

At the time Tom was voted out of the villa by the public, he and Sophie had just been getting their relationship back on track. All had seemed well, though, as Tom had told Sophie he loved her on his exit.

However, days later Sophie appeared to spark up a new romance with Katie Salmon. The girls had coupled up, but their coupling was short-lived as Sophie later realised it was Tom she wanted. She quit the villa in the hope of pursuing her relationship with him.

Sophie's decision had angered Katie, as she claimed she had been made to feel like her feelings for Sophie had been reciprocated. Sophie, meanwhile, has insisted she told Katie they were only coupling up as friends, and admitted she saw an opportunity to get to the final by pairing with Katie.

Fans tuned in to the Love Island: Heading Home reunion special on Sunday night (17 July), and Katie confronted Sophie about her comments. She said: "Not at one point did you say we were coupling as friends. You're such a liar. I'm not a false person. I'm real, unlike you unfortunately. It really is embarrassing."

That confrontation had fans second guessing about Sophie, leading on Twitter user to tweet: "Omg @sophiegradon lied through her teeth to @katiesalmon24 I thought she was ok but she's very fake #loveislandwrapparty."

Their comment didn't go unnoticed by Sophie and she responded: "Oh change the mother f**king record. Yawwwwnnnnn #tv#entertainment#getoverit."

When they told Sophie they "didn't understand why she would lie if she was happy with Tom", she repsonded by admitting she had been left confused following Tom's departure.

Sophie tweeted back: "It's was a mind f**k & I admit I f**ked up, have u never made a mistake? I left for Tom, he's my priority right now. End of."

Since Sophie quit Love Island, she and Tom have been working on their relationship, and judging by the slew of Snapchats and selfies we've been seeing lately, it looks like they may have finally sorted things out!
