Meanwhile, James took to Instagram and shared his devastation over two posts.
"I honestly thought & could see myself standing there with you at the end, it was a shock for me to leave tonight..." he wrote.
"I know the feelings & chemistry were real 🔥 and watching it back on TV just re-confirms this for me... it didn't work out with us, and that's completely okay, if it were meant to be it would have been."
James explained that he hoped to remain good friends with Sophie.
"And I honestly have nothing but love & respect for you and hope more than anything we can turn our connection into one that's best mates as it'd be a shame to let it go completely," he wrote.
"[S]omeone out there will like me for me, and by going through this experience it will hopefully lead me to meeting that woman."
We're sure James will be snapped up in no time!
