She met boyfriend Tom Powell in the villa this summer so perhaps it's no surprise Sophie Gradon has kept a little memento from her time on Love Island.

The former Miss Great Britain, 30, revealed via Snapchat that she's kept two packets of cigarettes assigned to her and Tom during their time in Majorca.

Covered in white paper to ensure the brand name isn't visible (TV ad rules and all that), the two packets have the pair's initials on them.

Can we say 'aww' to an empty packet of ciggies?!

Sophie and Tom met on the second series of Love Island over the summer and made it official in the villa. But they didn't have an entirely smooth course of romanceā€¦

If you remember, they briefly split in the villa after a rocky patch, not helped by the arrival of Tom's ex-girlfriend Emma-Jane Woodhams. Then, when they patched up their differences, Tom was eliminated, leaving Sophie in the villa alone. She went on to couple with newcomer Katie Salmon and they shared a kiss during a boozy date, while Tom watched from home.

After coupling with Katie, Sophie did a U-turn and chose to quit the show in order to salvage her romance with Tom. We saw their somewhat awkward first meeting in Heading Home, where they laid all their cards on the table in an emotional chat.

Tom and Sophie decided to give romance another go and have seemed smitten ever since, proving relationships that start on TV can work.

Meanwhile, Sophie isn't the only Love Island-er to keep a memento from the series: winner Nathan Massey took home the cute N & C building blocks from his picnic date with girlfriend Cara de la Hoyde.
