Love Island exes Samie and Tom risk awkward run-in at same event after split

Samie Elishi and Tom Clare risked an awkward run-in as they reunited with a number of their fellow Love Island co-stars at the Pride of Manchester Awards.

The event, held at the lavish Kimpton Clock Tower Hotel, saw both Samie and Tom in attendance, and while there may have been some awkwardness for the former couple, they didn't seem to let this stop them having fun.

Posing on the red carpet, Samie, 22, donned a stylish black and white dress, which she paired with some matching shoes. Completing her look, she unveiled her glamorous new fringe.

Meanwhile, Tom, 23, took to Instagram to share some snaps of the event, as he posed alongside former co-stars Ron Hall and Casey O'Gorman, all of whom sported black suits and bow ties.

And while the event was almost a Love Island reunion, Tom and Samie appeared to sit at separate tables while inside the event, with Tom sat with Casey, Shaq Muhammed, Tanya Manhenga and winners Kai Fagan and Sanam Harrinanan.

Meanwhile, Samie was sat with Ron, Lana Jenkins, Olivia Hawkins, Claudia Fogarty and Laura Anderson.

Following her split from Tom, Samie shared an emotional 17-minute video to YouTube, where she opened up about the break-up and shared that she was in the middle of a health scare.

"I never wanted to make this video," the star began, admitting she had also never wanted to share a statement on the split.

"It is intense," she said. "Me and Tom have broken up. It's ended on good terms. No one's done anything bad to each other, there's still lots and lots of love there. It just wasn't working on the outside and we both agreed on the majority of the things.

"There's no bad blood there, me and Tom. I would never say a bad word about him and he wouldn't about me."

Samie went on to explain that the reason she hadn't posted a statement on her Instagram stories straight away was that she's been going through some "personal stuff", revealing that she was undergoing tests for cancer, after Love Island fans spotted a lump on her neck during the series.

During her video, the TV star also shared that she had been left "blindsided" when Tom announced their split on social media, as she told fans: "I thought me and Tom were on the same page with it but obviously he felt the need to post a story on the specific day when I was getting all my tests done, which didn't help.

"But yeah, that's basically why I wasn't ready, but my phone just blew up after that," Samie went on, admitting that she'd felt "very very overwhelmed" after she began receiving "backlash" following the split.
