Rochelle Humes' sister Sophie Ellis is one of the contestants on this year's Love Island - but fans could be mistaken for thinking that The Saturdays star was in the villa!

Sophie, 21, is one of the gorgeous singletons looking for love under the blazing South African sun this January... but what do we know about her and her other sister, Lili Ellis?

How many sisters does Rochelle Humes have?

Rochelle has two sisters and a brother, Jake, who are her dad Mark Piper's kids.

Mark walked out on Rochelle and her mum when she was just three years old.

What happened with Rochelle Humes and her sisters Sophie and Lili Piper?

Rochelle and Lili met as children, but didn't grow up together. She told Giovanna Fletcher on her Happy Mum Happy Baby podcast, that it was actually former Love Island star Kem Cetinay that reunited them.

She 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.’

“I knew of her and met up with her when I was five, but it was so complicated as they were a lot younger and my dad wasn't involved.”

Rochelle explained that she agreed for Kem to pass on each other's numbers, and soon they decided to meet up.

“She WhatsApped me and I didn't reply till the morning. We planned to go out for dinner with my other sister and brother and I made Marvin come with me because I was so scared.

“We are literally the same people, Marvin was like, ‘OMG, there's more of you.’

"We've spoken every day since - Jeremy Kyle style. It's like we've known each other all our lives.”

Sophie has also spoken about now knowing her sister growing up. She told the Mail: "There was a period where we weren’t in contact.

"It was weird growing up not knowing Rochelle but since we have spoken we speak every day so it is nice all of us being in each other's lives now.

"My middle sister Lili went to school with Kem so that's how we know him. Obviously he was at the same school as me. It's funny how it's all linked together."
