Rochelle Humes & Sophie Piper reunited with long lost sister by Kem Cetinay
Rochelle Humes and Sophie Piper's emotional reunion with their long lost sister Lili was set up by Love Island star Kem Cetinay.
The telly presenter, 30, previously met her half-sister only once, when they were children, and she has credited Kem with getting the siblings back together.
Ironically Sophie, 20, has now followed Kem into Love Island as the star of the new winter version.
The reunion plan came about at a Christmas party three years ago when Kem revealed he was friends with Lili and decided to help them reunite.
Speaking to Giovanna Fletcher on her Happy Mum Happy Baby Podcast, Rochelle explained: "I grew up with my mum and sister, all my siblings are half siblings. My dad was never around.
"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.
"On a drunken night out, Kem asked me if he could give her my number.
"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."
The former pop star went on to reveal she couldn't believe how much they look alike when they finally met up – and her husband Marvin was also shocked by the family resemblance.
She added: "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 is starring on Love Island this year, which is n ironic twist to the family tale as it was former winner Kem who brought them all back together.
