When Sophie Gradon and Tom Powell broke up, we thought that love was dead forever. We actually met the pair in real life and they seemed so loved up. BUT, as fate would have it, it wasn't to be, and they had a pretty nasty split.

Now that's all in the past, Sophie has moved on and she's super loved up with a fella called Ashley Ienco, who you might not have heard of by name, but if you're a Love Island fan, you have actually briefly met him before.

Remember when they introduced eight new arrivals for the gang to pick from? He was one of four men the women had to choose between for a place in the villa. They went for Adam Jukes, who tbh, is a bit forgettable. Sorry hun.

Here he is posing with the rest of the "rejects" after Adam went through.

According to reports at the time, he had his eye on Sophie and liked her for her "maturity and stunning looks".

It's not clear if they stayed in touch outside of the villa, but Sophie explained on her Instagram:

I wonder what crazy love stories will come out of this one he was only in there 5 minutes but we found each other on the outside & it's been a blessing.

Aw, we wish them all the best!
