Love Island star Connor Durman has accused his ex girlfriend of selling photos of him with a suspicious white powder, something she denies.
Connor accused “bitter” ex Stevie-Leigh Pich of selling photos of him with a substance he has admitted was “recreational drugs”.
The photos emerged in The Sun, and he apologised publicly, claiming he had used drugs while he lived in Australia, and his life was “spiralling out of control”, so he moved back to the UK.
He claimed the reason he believes Stevie-Leigh sold the photos is because she is jealous after applying for Love Island twice and being rejected.
But speaking to MirrorOnline, Stevie-Leigh firmly denied selling the photos of Connor.
Connor, 25, who left the Love Island villa three weeks in after his other half Sophie Piper was picked to stay, was filmed in a video from when he was living in Australia.
He is posing with lines of white powder in front of him, talking to the camera.
His rep told The Sun: “Connor was living in Australia last year and recreational drugs were sadly used.
“One of the reasons he left Australia and came back to the UK to be with his family is because he realised his life was spiralling out of control.
“He regrets his past and is now moving forward with his life. He is sorry.”
Since Sophie was dumped from the villa, the pair appeared to be making a go of things, and were pictured on a date night together to the cinema before they headed back to a hotel.
Sophie has since insisted they aren’t together, calling their romance a “situationship” rather than a relationship.
But speaking in his Cheltenham Betting Offers blog, Connor seemed to think things were progressing nicely, writing: “ It’s going really well with Sophie. She really wants to meet my mates and my family, so it’s nice.
“We’re chatting all the time, things are going well. We’re taking things slowly at the moment because in the villa it’s quite intense, so it’s quite nice to have a real relationship.
“We’re just seeing each other, not taking things too fast.
He also referred to her as his “other half”, revealing: “I met Rochelle and Lili, her sister, at Aftersun, and they were lovely.
“It was nice to meet them, they were really nice. I am always quite nervous about meeting an other half’s family, but things went really well.”
