A TV SHOW contestant has seen a sudden upturn in his fortunes with two women now vying for his affections.

Love Island entrant Connor Durman’s single status had seen him at risk of elimination from the show.

The 25-year-old from Worthing had been fighting to win back love interest Sophie Piper after she re-coupled with new boy Connagh Howard, a 6ft 3in tall model from Cardiff.

On Monday night new girl Rebecca Gormley entered the villa and quickly stole Connor away for a date in the Hideaway... a secluded room in the villa. He dressed to impress but, midway through their date, he realised he only had eyes for his first flame.

Sophie, the sister of singer Rochelle Humes, came to the same realisation when he was snatched away for a date.

When he came back, she pulled him aside for a “chat” and told him how she felt before leaning in for a kiss.

She has also been accused of palming off her current partner Connagh on Rebecca, telling her he was the tallest man in the villa after she said she liked her partners to be tall.
