- Latest teasers, exclusives and updates for Winter Love Island 2023 right here
Love Island’s Tom Clare was left worrying in the man villa as his partner Samie Elishi flirted with newcomer Ryan Weekley in Casa Amor during Monday night’s episode.
In the main villa, semi-professional footballer Tom, 23, was chatting to fellow Islanders Will Young, 23, and Casey O’Gorman, 26, about what he thought Samie would do during her time away.
And while Tom insisted he was confident in himself, Samie was having a flirtatious chat with steel erector Ryan, 22, in the other villa.
Will told Tom: ‘Honestly, I think your head will turn,’ to which Tom replied: ‘Honestly? Alright, cool, if that’s your honest opinion.’
Casey told him: ‘I think you’ll kiss a couple of girls but I don’t think you’ll couple-up with a girl.’

Tom then asked Will and Casey what he thought Samie would be like with the new boys, to which they both remained silent.
The sportsman declared: ‘I back myself against them dweebs any day anyway.’
Meanwhile, in Casa Amor, Samie said she’d set her sights on Ryan based on her initial impressions of the newcomers, saying she was drawn to him because of his eyes.
However, she did have some doubts, telling the rest of the girls: ‘When he opened his mouth he sounded a bit like Tom. I was like, “This is weird!”‘
Moments later Samie was seen flirting with Ryan as the pair chatted while sitting on the beanbags.
Ryan told her: ‘I think you’re the best looking,’ to which Samie replied: ‘Do you? That’s nice! Thank you! Are you sure? Have you seen them all? They’re all stunning!’
But when Ryan asked Samie how things were going with Tom, she told him: ‘So far, it is going good, I won’t lie. But I’m a proper slow burner. It takes me a while.
‘We’ve kind of struggled with that because he’s been really affectionate straight away. It’s still early days. We’re only getting to know each other.’

Tom pensively replied while stroking his beard: ‘Interesting.’
In the Beach Hut, Samie said: ‘My conversation with Ryan went really, really well. He’s impressed me to be fair. He was ticking quite a few boxes. He seems really, really nice.
Love Island viewers took to Twitter in their droves to express their delight at seeing Samie and Ryan getting along.
