Love Island's Sophie Piper declares her love for Joshua Ritchie in birthday tribute

Love Island star Sophie Piper has declared her love for Josh Ritchie in a tribute for his birthday.

The pair coupled up in the inaugural series of Love Island: All Stars, which saw past contestants return to the villa for another shot at finding love.

Sophie and Josh hit it off straight away before eventually finishing in third place, and their relationship has gone on strong since leaving the vill. Sophie wrote a heartfelt message on Instagram to celebrate Josh’s 30th birthday today (May 21).

While Sophie and Josh are still loved up, All Stars co-star Georgia Harrison recently reflected on her love life following her split from Anton Danyluk, saying: “I'm not manifesting a man. I clearly don’t do dating very well,

“I’ve done enough dating shows and they never seem to work out for me. I’m at a stage in my life where I literally just want to concentrate on what does work well for me. I am genuinely at the point where I don’t need a man to be happy. Maybe that isn’t my purpose in life.”

Love Island airs on ITV2 and streams on ITVX.
