Love Island's Tom Clare has landed a huge eBay deal in the first big fashion signing of the latest series, which ended earlier this month.
The semi-professional footballer, 23, is following in the footsteps of Tasha Ghouri from 2022's Love Island, who is signed up to the e-retailer giant.
Tom announced his signing to eBay with an Instagram post as he modelled a range of pre-loved clothing, showing off his camera-friendly looks with piercing blue eyes, stubbly beard and thick brown hair.
He captioned the post: "I’VE BEEN BUSY BEHIND THE SCENES.
"I’m buzzing to announce that I am @ebay_uk’s next pre-loved ambassador! In the villa I loved showcasing pre-loved fashion from eBay, and the number of brands available is unreal, allowing me to push my style comfort zone.
"Excited to be taking the pre-loved conversation into menswear and I will be launching my very own pre-loved edit very soon, so watch this space guys!"
Tasha threw her support behind him as she commented: "Congrats!! Welcome to the team."
Tom's Love Island co-star Ron Hall said: "HUGE news, Congratulations big man!" whilst Will Young wrote: "The boy."
Samie Elishi, who is now Tom's girlfriend since they met on the show, gushed: "So proud!" with a red love heart emoji.
Kai Fagan, who won the show with Sanam Harrinanan, wrote: "This is sick, congrats mate!!!" and Shaq Muhammad added: "Well deserved my bro."
Legendary footballer Rio Ferdinand even showed his support for Tom, as he commented: "Congrats…"
Speaking about his new role, Mail Online reports Tom said: "I've always been into fashion and making sure the outfits I put together look good. Going into the villa I was buzzing as I knew there would be clothes in there from brands that I really love, like Reiss, Prada, Palace and COS.
"All the boys had so much fun getting ready in the evenings, going through eBay's pre-loved shared wardrobe and chatting about what we were going to wear.
"I do really think wearing pre-loved gives you the chance to explore and create your own unique style – and by working with eBay I hope we can inspire more men to be more experimental in their fashion and pick pre-loved first."
Tom's collaboration with eBay comes after he and Samie came third in this year's winter Love Island, after securing 24% of the public vote in the grand final.
Since leaving the villa, Tom and Samie have continued their romance and recently reunited with some of their co-stars, as they headed for what looked to be a double date with Claudia Fogarty and Casey O’Gorman, who were briefly involved with one another while in the villa.
The outing came after Claudia slammed any idea of a reconciliation with Casey during a recent Q&A on Instagram.
