He rocked the villa after sharing a sneaky smooch with Ellie Spence, despite being coupled up with Zara Deniz Lackenby-Brown at the time.
But after re-coupling with Ellie, Tom Clare now has his sights well and truly set on Samie Elishi.
And the footballer, 23, is set to get flirty again with the bombshell, 22, in scenes due to air on Sunday night, admitting to ‘liking her a lot’.
And as they cuddle up in the sunshine, he even went to discuss a future for them together back in the UK.
He said: ‘I don’t want to rush into anything but I can’t lie, I’m starting to like you a lot’.
Love Island SPOILER: ‘I’m starting to like you a lot’: Tom will reveal his feelings for bombshell Samie and discuss their future together back in the UK on Sunday
‘I want you to know how I’m feeling about you, I am wanting to give you all of my attention. You’re the one in here that I can see something on the outside with.’
However it is unclear is Samie feels the same or if Tom will be heading for a whole lot of heartache.
Elsewhere on Sunday Lana Jenkins was forced to choose between Ron Hall and Casey O’Gorman in a shock recoupling, but confessed she was still undecided.
The make-up artist, 25, has been caught in a love triangle with the boys ever since Casey, 26, entered as a bombshell and Ron, 25, admitted his head had been turned by newcomer Samie Elishi, 22.
As the Islanders continued to enjoy the sunshine, the villa was rocked by a surprise text.
It read: ‘Islanders, tonight there will be a recoupling. The girls will each choose which boy they want to couple up with #TakeYourPick #DecisionTime.’
Realising it’s crunch time on her decision, Lana admitted: ‘I feel pressure, I don’t know who I’m going to couple with…’
Earlier in the episode, Ron and Lana reflected on the latest dumping and how it made them feel about their own situation.

Lana said of the fact Ron wasn’t at risk of being dumped: ‘I was glad when they called your name.’
Ron laughed: ‘Were you? I’d hope so,’ while Lana replied: ‘Imagine if I was like, I couldn’t wait for you to go.’
Later on, Lana spoke to Casey and he told her: ‘I won’t need to f*** up with you to realise what I’ve got with you if that makes you feel any more reassured.’ Lana joked: ‘The shade.’
Decision time: Elsewhere on Sunday Lana Jenkins was forced to choose between Ron Hall and Casey O’Gorman in a shock recoupling, but confessed she was still undecided
It seems Lana is still undecided as she went to the Beach Hut and said: ‘I have chats with Ron and I sway more that way, then I have chats with Casey and I sway that way…’
Meanwhile, there was more drama in store for Lana and Ron during Friday’s episode as Samie exposed his secret conversations.
Despite claiming Lana was his priority, Ron continued to chat to the other girls in the villa, prompting Lana to become wary of their relationship.
However, Lana was chosen by Aaron Waters in the latest recoupling and bombshell Casey O’Gorman caught her eye after he arrived in the villa.
Who will it be? The make-up artist, 25, has been caught in a love triangle ever since Casey, 26, (pictured) entered and Ron, 25, admitted his head had been turned by Samie, 22.

Uh-oh: Meanwhile, there was more drama in store for Lana and Ron during Friday’s episode as Samie (pictured) exposed his secret conversations
Keen to win the affections of Lana back, Ron promised to focus on her and competed with Casey to make her breakfast.
But, as Lana began to open up to the idea of giving Ron a chance on Friday’s episode, Samie suggested he could be hiding his true feelings from Lana.
Lana said: ‘I’m at completely different stages with Casey and Ron, it’s hard to throw that away but then am I being…?’
Samie replied: ‘Lana, he’s a flirt man, he’s a proper flirt,’ but Tanya told her: ‘Lana, no.’
Loved-up: Later on, Lana spoke to Casey and he told her: ‘I won’t need to f*** up with you to realise what I’ve got with you if that makes you feel any more reassured’
Safe: Lana said of the fact Ron (pictured) wasn’t at risk of being dumped: ‘I was glad when they called your name’
LOVE ISLAND – THE STORY SO FAR!
Sensing there was an issue, Lana asked: ‘Why, what are you telling me?’
Speaking of Ron, Samie replied: ‘He’s just muddling up everyone’s heads I think. He’s trying to keep everyone happy.’
Lana asked Samie: ‘Is he still trying to keep options with you?’
Samie responded: ‘He was very clever with what he was saying and how he was saying it.’
She then said Ron had insisted he and Samie had the same spark he’d had with Lana.
Samie added that Ron had said he wanted to get to know her more if things went sour with Lana, insisting: ‘I think he’s as confused as everyone else.’
Viewers were quick to take to Twitter to praise Samie for being honest and exposing Ron as a ‘player’.
