The 29-year-old model, who caused shockwaves when he arrived in the villa on Sunday night, was subject to suspicion from viewers after his Instagram page showed cosy snaps with his stunning companion dating as early as December.

Love Island was thrown into disarray upon the arrival of Tom and fellow new boy Jordan Hames, with Tom setting his sights on both Maura and Elma.
