Apparently, Sophie isn't mentioning Rochelle Humes in the Love Island villa for one reason

We're n'able for Callum, we think Mike could be a rat AND we're praising Connor with the teeth.

Want to know why?

Listen below!

Interesting.

As we all know, new Islander Sophie Piper is the sister to one very famous (former girlband) star, Rochelle Humes.

Besides them looking near-identical, Sophie revealed that Rochelle was her big sister during her first teaser interview before entering the villa.

But, since she's met her fellow islanders, shared some cheeky kisses, laughed a LOT and even discussed her family with pearly whites Connor, she's not mentioned her famous sister, not even once.

And although many might think she's just being coy about her famous family, it seems as though the radio silence might be for legal reasons.

Speaking to the Metro UK, an associate lawyer weighed in with their thoughts saying:

"Despite the reportedly close relationship between Sophie and Rochelle, we cannot rule out the possibility that Sophie was asked to sign an NDA or otherwise agreed to be bound by obligations of confidentiality.

"We would expect that [Rochelle] would want to protect [her clean image] and a well-structured NDA, with a clear definition of what constitutes 'confidential information' is a useful tool for achieving this purpose."

Rochelle is clearly aware that Sophie could accidentally slip and say something damaging about the star and so, the mom-of-two might be taking some preventative steps to make sure all runs smoothly.

Rochelle is married to former JLS star Marvin Humes and together they have two daughters.

Both sharing support for Sophie, Rochelle told her sister to bring home a "keeper" while Marvin chimed in saying:

"Is this how far @rochellehumes will go to make me watch Love Island?! ? Good luck Soph x"

Sophie is currently making headlines for lying to Connaugh on the latest episode of the show.
