Ashley Ienco was in fact one of four boys who were rejected from the villa before even entering. 

However, since leaving the show, the pair appeared to have got in contact, and are now happier than ever. 

Before meeting her new man, Sophie dated co-star Tom Powell.

In a now deleted Instagram post, Sophie shared a quote reading: “Some people are meant to fall in love with each other, but no meant to be together,” appearing to confirm her break up with her co-star.

However, things took a turn for the worst when both parties began accusing the other on social media of being unfaithful. 

Sophie shared on Twitter a screen grab taken for her ex’s Twitter inbox asking another girl for their number. 

The gym-honed reality star also messaged the girl saying: “Hey Soph found out I got your number and kicked off she’s prob gonna message you, please just don’t reply to her or this message please X.”

Following his ex girlfriend’s exposure of his messages, Tom retaliated by sharing a picture of Sophie getting close to another male, writing: “2 can play at that game.. here’s a picture of Sophie cheating on my the week she got out of the villa..” 

Several months on and Sophie has moved on with her new man as Tom appears to be enjoying single life.
