Love Island stars RECOUPLE outside show

Shocked girls

Everyone was shocked when the 'best looking' couple from this year's Love Island announced they'd split.

Casey O’Gorman and Rosie Seabrook were the first couple to go their separate ways which shocked a grand total of no one and since leaving the villa Casey has spent 90 percent of his time flirting with Claudia Fogarty on every social media platform.

Bombshells Zara Lackenby-Brown and Jordan Odofin, who weren't in the villa at the same time but met once they had both been booted out, shared a fleeting romance but called it a day around the same time as Casey and Rosie.

Those two couples splitting may not have been all the surprising but nobody saw the break up of Tom Clare and Samie Elishi coming.

The winter Love Island 2023 finalists seemed to be one of the stronger duos in the villa but recently Tom confirmed that the couple had "gone their separate ways" just a month after they finished Love Island in third place.

He took to his Instagram to share the news, writing, "Didn't think I'd be writing this but me & Samie have gone our separate ways... we are still on good terms & I have nothing but love & respect for her. I'm gutted it's come to an end but I truly wish Samie the best ❤️."


Or have they?

The apparent ex boyfriend and girlfriend have sparked rumours they have reconciled after Samie's villa bestie Claudia posted a TikTok of the couple.

Lip-synching to the iconic 'Gotta Go My Own Way,' from High School Musical Samie and Tom are joined by Claudia and Casey and are looking VERY cosy indeed.

But we must add that the iconic tune is about Gabriella Montez and Troy Bolton breaking up and, well, going their own way which leads us to believe the couple have in fact, gone their own way.

This didn't stop Love Island fans from hoping Tom and Samie have pulled a Gabriella and Troy and rekindled the romance.

One follower commented, "Samie and Tom 😳😅" with another asking, "Wait Tom and Samie are together again?!"

The couple apparently split due to distance and their busy work schedules with an insider explaining, “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.”

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

No confirmation yet from Samie or Tom if the love affair is back on but fingers crossed they are following in the footsteps of winning couple Sanam Harrinanan and Kai Fagan who are giving the distance thing a whirl.

Oh and Millie Court and Liam Reardon who are apparently back together after splitting last year.
