She is arguably one of the hottest Love Island bombshells to rock the villa and turned the head of pretty much every single fella when she joined the winter version of the dating show in 2023.

Samie Elishi joined Love Island on day 14 and first coupled up with eventual winner Kai Fagan before bonding with Tom Clare, with the duo making it all the way to the final.

As Samie's ex Tom has now headed back to the South African Villa in the All Stars spin-off, it has fans wondering if Samie would also return to the dating show.

Who is Samie Elishi?

Samie is a Love Island 2023 bombshell who won us over instantly when she rocked up in a stunning green cut out dress.

We wanted her to win from the beginning because it turns out she had rocked the ensemble before and everyone loves a girl who isn't afraid to recycle a hot AF outfit.

During our research (stalking) we had a quick look (hours upon hours of stalking) at Samie's Instagram and spotted her wearing the green and gold show-stopper during a trip to Ibiza last October.

No one can blame Samie for picking this dress as her entrance outfit. Firstly, cost of living crisis, we can't all buy new outfits for every day of the week, and secondly, she looked drop dead gorgeous and judging by the reaction of the guys and girls - they all agreed.

How old is Samie Elishi?

Samie's birthday is 15 February 2000 which makes her 23 years old. She celebrated her birthday in the villa too.

Where is Samie Elishi from?

Samie is from North London and bonded with Shaq over the fact that he is from West London as if NOBODY else in the world is from England's capital.

The Londoner also revealed her family heritage in a YouTube Q&A.

"I'm going to address this one because there's been so much confusion when I was in the villa about my ethnicity and where I'm actually from" she began.

"Obviously [I'm a] London girl. City girl. I am from London but my dad is Moroccan.

"So that makes me half Moroccan and half English. I think there's a bit of Welsh in there from my mum's side but it all gets muddled into one sometimes."

What happened between Samie Elishi and Tom Clare?

They came in third place on Love Island and remained a couple once they left the villa but shortly after called it a day on their relationship.

Tom admitted he "didn't think he'd be writing" about their break up and said he's "gutted" about their relationship ending, Samie hinted that things have been 'unfair'following their split.

What did Samie Elishi do before Love Island?

Before going into the villa, Samie had two jobs - one in an estate agent as a branch coordinator and the other she worked on Thursday and Friday evenings in a restaurant.

Is Samie Elishi friends with Claudia Fogarty?

They are BFFs in fact. Although they live at opposite ends of the country, Samie and Claudia Fogarty are the best of pals ever since they met on Love Island in 2023.

During their villa stint, Samie was dating Tom and Claudia was coupled up with Tom's mate Casey O'Gorman.
