After a dramatic entrance from Love Island host Laura Whitmore on Sunday night's episode, viewers saw that the couple with the least amount of public votes was Sophie and Connor. And on Monday night's show, after much deliberation between their fellow Islanders, Sophie was saved and Connor was dumped from the Island.

Although he's leaving behind Sophie, who he has been interested in from the start, Connor isn't convinced that she won't move on as she carries on in the show. "It's still early on in the Villa," he said. "Her head could be turned." But, the 25-year-old insists that if she does move on, there'll be no hard feelings. "I want her to enjoy the experience. It's a once in a lifetime thing. I wouldn't have any grudges against her. I do just want her to be happy."

Despite thinking that Sophie will move on to find love elsewhere, Connor is determined to stay loyal. "I will wait for her," he said. "I'm in no rush to meet someone else." He continued: "Whatever happens, happens. And if we end up meeting up, let's just see what happens. I just want her to be happy." Aw!
