Love Island’s Tom Clare was concerned at the men’s mansion when his partner Samie Elishi flirted with newcomer Ryan Weekley at Casa Amor during Monday night’s episode.
At the main mansion, semi-professional footballer Tom, 23, chatted with islanders Will Young, 23, and Casey O’Gorman, 26, about what he thought Samie would be doing during their absence.
And while Tom insisted on being confident, Samie engaged in a flirty chat with 22-year-old steelworker Ryan at the other villa.
Will said to Tom, “Honestly, I think your head will spin,” to which Tom replied, “Honestly? Okay, cool if that’s your honest opinion.’
Casey told him, “I think you’re going to kiss some girls, but I don’t think you’re going to hook up with a girl.”

Tom then asked Will and Casey how he thought Samie would be with the new boys, about which they were both silent.
The athlete explained: “I defend myself against these idiots every day anyway.”
Meanwhile, at Casa Amor, Samie said she targeted Ryan based on her first impressions of the new arrivals and said she was drawn to him because of his eyes.

“We struggle a bit with that because he was very affectionate straight away. It is still early. We’re just getting to know each other.”
