Love Island star Tom Clare has broken his silence on social media since reports that he and girlfriend Samie Elishi have called it quits on their relationship.
The couple, who made their romance official following the end of this year's winter series, appeared to be head over heels as they left the villa in third place.
In the weeks following the live final in South Africa, footballer Tom, 23, and London babe Samie, 22, seemed to be going from strength to strength.
Distance was always a factor between the couple during their conversations on the show, as Tom is a Northerner and Samie is from the South, but they pledged to make things work.
Unfortunately, it's now been claimed they decided the long distance was too difficult to deal with, and as they were spotted going to the gym separately, Tom shared a snap of himself on train.
With a huge smile, his face was worlds away from the look of thunder both he and Samie had during recent photos of out and about in the city.
Tom took a selfie as he sat listening to music next to the train window, his AirPods in place.
"Live on these things recently," the reality TV star wrote over the top, as he posed in a black hoodie and cream puffa jacket for the journey.
Elsewhere, brunette stunner Samie took to her own Instagram to share an update with fans.
The star opted to post a snap of her enjoying the sunshine with a friend, as they went out for lunch together.
Revealing the Islanders' alleged split on Monday, a source said: “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.
“The distance between them was too much and they are both really focused on their careers post Love Island."
Fans were already speculating that all was not well in paradise following a lack of content on the duo's Instagram pages.
The last time Tom shared a snap with his girlfriend was on 5 April, as the duo headed on a night out with fellow Love Island pal Claudia Fogarty.
While the latter gushed over the duo in the comments, calling them her "favourite pair," it doesn't appear Tom and Samie have reunited again.
In contrast, Will Young and Australian belle Jessie Wynter have been back and forth between the latter's London apartment and his Berkshire farm, and show runners-up Ron Hall and Lana Jenkins have made similar efforts.
The distance between Ron and Lana is also said to have been tough for the couple, with the former firmly based in Essex and social media influencer Lana currently living in Manchester.
