Sophie and Connor mated during the series, but saw their romance die out after leaving the South African film set and coming back to life in the United Kingdom.
While the world would freeze in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, the duo would have moved away until the romance ended.
A source told The Sun, “Things just disappeared. They never even became official.
“He just didn’t get a chance to start because of the lockdown and they both agreed it was best to stay friends. “
Sophie – who is the younger sister of The Saturdays star Rochelle Humes – chose to stay single on Love Island after Connor was released after two weeks, before being dropped from the show herself a week later.
Love Island was halted this summer as the COVID-19 epidemic derailed plans to film the summer season.
While recent reports have suggested the series won’t return for a 2021 winter season in January – instead opting for a series of exceptional returns later next year.
Last month, the bosses of the show revealed their intention not to return to the villa.
“ITV wants Love Island to be a huge success, so they decided to put all their energy into making next summer’s series an exceptional race, and not trying to force a winter version given the uncertainty in the TV industry at this point, “said a source. out of print.
“January 2021 seems far away, but the process would begin imminently and with certain restrictions still in place, they don’t want to approach anything halfway. “
