Love Island star Sophie Gradon has gushed over that time her boyfriend Tom Powell met her parents for the first time...

We all knew that Sophie had spent time in Wales with Tom's family, but recently it had been Tom's turn to be introduced to the family. He joined Sophie in her hometown of Newcastle, and after meeting her parents, she gushed it had been a "perfect evening" for the couple.

Sophie took to Instagram with a new photo of herself and Tom and the pair couldn't seem happier with each other. Not only are the looking adoringly at each other, the pair are holding hands and we have to say, they make a pretty good-looking couple, don't they?

Alongside her photo, Sophie shared a relationship update with fans and said: "When babba met the parents! Perfect evening #family #love."

Things are getting more serious!

We already knew, though, that Tom and Sophie's parents had got together, as he had tweeted about the moment earlier this week. His tweet caused a slight stir, however, as fans speculated whether Tom was mocking his co-star Terry Walsh.

Tom tweeted: "Just got home from meeting @sophiegradon's parents... No black eyes or thick lips... Think it went pretty well."

Just hours before, Terry had tweeted something very similar. He told his followers: "Just met @emmajwoodhams parents... 1 black eye 3 teeth down we're all good! Na bants rele nice and welcoming. (sic)"

Was it intentional? Towards the end of Love Island the boys had appeared to fall out, but, then again, their tweets could have just been coincidence.

Love Island episode 32: Sophie and Tom back together


Tom and Sophie got together during Love Island's second series, but their romance didn't exactly go without a hitch.

Despite becoming an official item, Sophie and Tom split shortly after the arrival of his ex Emma-Jane Woodhams - although they did manage to rekindle things just before Tom was voted out of the island.

Following his exit, Sophie appeared to strike up a romance with Katie Salmon, but later decided her heart with Tom, so she quit the show. That didn't stop Tom feeling "mugged" off by Sophie, though, and fans saw Sophie apologise to him for her actions on Love Island's Heading Home episode.

Since then, the pair have proven they are serious about each other and recently shrugged off speculation they had split. Following a minor spat on Twitter, Sophie reassured fans she and Tom are a ok.
