Rochelle Humes' sister Sophie Piper is one of the series' best sign-ups and bosses are said to be over the moon.

Love Island 2020 has signed up Sophie Piper, Rochelle Humes' little sister, and she's already been labelled as one of this year's biggest contestants for the Cape Town villa.

But who is Sophie? What is her job and what do we need to know about her family?

How old is Sophie and who is she?

Sophie Piper is 21 and hails from Essex, where she works as a medical PA. She is also signed by modelling agency Milk.

The beautiful leggy brunette probably looks a bit familiar... and that's cause she is the absolute spitting image of older half-sister Rochelle Humes.

While the pair look more like twins, and have confused their followers on many occasions with side by side pictures, they only share a mum, and have a few other lookalike siblings too.

Sophie has been a rumoured contestant for over a year now, but it looks like ITV bosses have finally snagged her.

What's Sophie Piper's Instagram handle?

You can follow Sophie on the account @sophpiper_ where she's likely to nab a blue tick very soon.

She currently has 11.4k followers but they're undoubtedly going to skyrocket very soon.

What's Sophie's dating life like?

We can't imagine someone who looks like a real life Disney princess having bad luck when it comes to dating, but Sophie has a few embarrassing moments when it comes to first dates.

She revealed that she went for dinner with a guy once, went to give him a peck when they left but didn't realise until she got home that she'd had a bit of cheese hanging all the way down from the corner of her mouth.

Her ideal first date is Japanese or Italian food, and she'd like to do it with a guy who's "tall tanned and with light eyes" and describes her ideal man as Anthony Joshua.
