Viewers were left speechless when Sophie Gradon decided to walk out of the Love Island villa during last night’s show.
The 30-year-old decided to end her time on ITV2, telling her fellow Islanders: ‘Guys, I’m going to go. I’ve been feeling like this for a while. Now, I think my time is done.’
Her decision came after the islanders played a game that involved tweets from viewers. After hearing some comments about Tom Powell, who recently got voted out of the show, Soph’ decided that she wanted to see him, and work on their on-again-off-again relationship.
Naturally, Tom took to Twitter whilst her decision was being aired.
He wrote: ‘No way….. She’s leaving?! She actually leaving?!!!’, he tweeted, before adding: ‘Not gonna lie.. I am not enjoying watching this tonight.’
It’s safe to say that he was just as surprised as the rest of us, then.
But wait, Love Island is filmed a day in advance, isn’t it?
Viewers were quick to start asking questions; if Sophie really was going to contact Tom once she left, wouldn’t he already know that she’d walked?
One social media user wrote: ‘Sophie left the villa yesterday right? Mainly for Tom as well yet hasn’t contacted him yet it’s been 24hours probably longer than that’.
Another questioned, ‘Don’t understand why Tom’s pretending he’s only found about Sophie from this episode. That was yesterday. #sofake’.
And another reaction read: ‘It wasn’t live though, so surely if he spoke to her as soon as she left he wouldn’t have found out last night’.
Perhaps it took Sophie a while to travel back? Or maybe she wanted some time alone first?
Whatever happened, it seems that they HAVE now spoken, so we’ll just have to see how this one plays out…
