Love Island star Sophie Gradon has reassured fans that she and her co-star boyfriend Tom Powell have NOT split.

The couple were plagued by rumours they had broken up over the weekend, after they appeared to split on Twitter. But making sure to set the record straight, Sophie responded to one fan who directly asked the reality star if she and Tom were no longer an item, and insisted that was not the case.

She said: "No! Ppl need to stop jumping to conclusions! We are fine! (sic)."

We're not exactly too sure what happened between Sophie and Tom, but the couple appeared to fall out briefly on Twitter while Tom was in Ibiza with Adam Jukes. He had tweeted: "This place is killing me off.. @AdamJukes1 is a liability."

One user then tweeted in response to Tom and said: "@ThomasJ_powell @AdamJukes1 @sophiegradon .... Why would you add the above when you've got @sophiegradon, really?"

It's thought that they were referring to a photo of a girl on Snapchat that had asked Tom to add her.

Sophie responded: "Yeah....really Tom?" She then added: "One rule for you, another for me... swiftly unfollowed #nicesave #iseeyou right I've got a flight to catch, want to get home and sleep for a week!!!"

Tom, meanwhile, had tweeted: "Why am I getting sh*t when I haven't even followed it....Swiftly unfollowed? What a joke!!!! I didn't follow any stupid page and giving me agg..."

He added: "Absolutely livid!"

It all, however, seemed to be a total misunderstanding and proving that he and Sophie are now a ok, Tom later tweeted his girlfriend to say: "Get some kip and I'll be there before you know it."


Tom and Sophie first got together while starring on Love Island. They had made their relationship official on the show, but Sophie was left in the villa without Tom when he was voted out by the public. She went on to briefly couple up with Katie Salmon on the show, prompting Tom to tell fans he was "done" with Sophie on social media when he saw her kiss Katie.

Sophie then decided to quit Love Island in a bid to save her relationship with Tom. She jetted home to reunite with her beau and has since said that coupling up with Katie was a way of securing herself a place in the final. Sophie claimed that Katie was "in on it too" (Katie has denied this on her part) and insisted their coupling was never anything more than friends.

Tom had told Sophie he "genuinely felt like she had been mugging him off", but he did forgive her and the pair have been making a go of their romance ever since.
