Love Island’s Tom Clare jetting on holiday with co-star after Samie Elishi split

Tom Clare is putting his recent split behind him and is planning to jet off on holiday with best pal and former co-star Casey O'Gorman.

Tom and ex-girlfriend Samie Elishi came third in this year's Love Island, however they struggled to make their romance work on the outside, and ultimately decided to call time on their relationship.

Shrugging off his heartbreak the semi-professional footballer has shared that he and fellow ex-islander Casey will be jetting off to Ibiza later this month.

Tom posted a photo of himself and Casey to his Instagram Stories and wrote: "Me and this clown heading to Ibiza this month, any recommendations? [palm tree emoji]"

Rumours of a split between Tom and Samie began spreading after a source told The Sun: "Samie and Tom have sadly decided to call it a day.

"There is a lot of love and respect there but it just wasn’t going anywhere.

“The distance between them was too much and they are both really focused on their careers post Love Island.”

Tom later took to Instagram to confirm the split and told his followers: "I didn't think I'd be writing this but me and Samie have gone our separate ways…

"We are still on good terms and I have nothing but love and respect for her. I'm gutted it's come to an end but I truly wish Samie the best."

Samie later criticised Tom's decision to post about the pair's break-up, on the same day that she was undergoing tests on a lump in her neck.

In an emotional 17-minute YouTube video, Samie opened up about both the split and cancer scare, and said: "I'm gonna be fine. I'm a strong strong girl. But yeah it [the video] was just clearing up a few things.

"I didn't think it was right to, well I wasn't in the right headspace to be posting my story about why me and Tom broke up.

She continued: "I thought me and Tom were on the same page with it but obviously he felt the need to post a story on the specific day when I was getting all my tests done, which didn't help.

"But yeah, that's basically why I wasn't ready, but my phone just blew up after that," Samie went on, admitting that she'd felt "very very overwhelmed" as a result of the "backlash" she received.

"[People were saying] 'You don't care', blah blah blah. Of course I care," the Essex beauty hit back. "

This is not how I wanted everything to pan out.

"In an ideal world everything would be great. But it takes a lot of courage to address something when you have so much pressure on it that isn't working. It's what I had to do."
