How is Love Island’s Sophie related to Rochelle Humes?

As they look very similar, you can probably tell that Sophie Piper, 21, is the sister of television presenter Rochelle Humes, 30.

Sophie and Rochelle’s parents split up when they were younger and were raised by their mother and uncle, ex-footballer Paul Ince.

Despite the two looking almost identical, medical PA Sophie and former Saturdays band member Rochelle are actually half-sisters, sharing their mother – Roz.

The duo have another sister called Lili, who also looks just like them and they also have a brother called Jake.

What has Rochelle said about Sophie going on Love Island?

Rochelle wished sister Sophie good luck ahead of her appearance on Love Island.

The presenter posted a sweet message from six-year old daughter Alaia on Instagram, who was very happy for her Auntie.

The message wrote: “Go Sophie, you are the best. I love you so much, good luck, go girl.”

Rochelle captioned the photo: “Alaia has no idea whatLove Islandis but bless her she knows her Auntie isnt available for FaceTime and is away doing something that we need to support her for.

“Good luck tonight sis, enjoy yourself and find a nice boy.”

Rochelle re-united with her sister Lili after 23 years apart

How did Rochelle and Sophie get in touch with their long-lost sister?

In 2017, Rochelle and Sophie were re-united with their long-lost sister Lili Piper.

The television presenter met her sibling once when she was aged five, but the two didnt grow up together.

But after 23 years apart they got back in contact in 2017 through the help of former Love Island winner Kem Cetinay.

Kem is a close friend of Lili’s and helped the sister trio get back together after bumping into Rochelle at a work party.

Speaking to Giovanna Fletcher on her Happy Mum Happy Baby podcast, the 30-year-old said: I’ve never told anyone this before. Two years ago, I was at our management’s Christmas party and Love Island’s Kem was there.

He was chatting away and said, I got to talk to you… as soon as I became a celeb, I promised my friend Lili that I would talk to you as she’s your sister on your dad’s side.

She continued: “We (Lili) planned to go out for dinner with my other sister and brother and I made Marvin come with me because I was so scared.”

Rochelle sweetly added: ” We’ve spoken every day since – Jeremy Kyle style. It’s like we’ve known each other all our lives.”
