LOVE Island finalists Samie Elishi and Tom Clare have taken their romance to the next level by making things official.

Samie, 22, has declared to fans that 23-year-old Tom is now her “boyfriend” after they enjoyed a romantic date night together.

Sitting in the back of a taxi, with music blaring, the stunning estate agent clutched hunky Tom’s hand and giggled.

Footballer Tom, meanwhile, grinned wildly in the video, which was shared to Samie’s Instagram Stories.

Alongside the sweet clip, Samie wrote: “This is my BOYFRIEND everyone.”

Samie finished off her exciting post with a single red heart emoji and four ‘crying with laughter’ ones.

Both Samie and Tom entered this year’s winter series of Love Island as bombshells.

However, the pair ended up falling for each other in the South African villa and made it all the way to the final.

Samie and Tom finished Love Island in third place, just behind runners-up Ron Hall and Lana Jenkins. They missed out on first place to winners Kai Fagan and Sanam Harrinanan.

The smitten Islanders were met with an incredible homecoming party when they flew back to the UK, but Tom was initially coy about his and Samie’s relationship status.

In an Instagram video to fans, he explained: “Samie will be my girlfriend very soon.

“We are very private people and it’s something that we would make just us two but yeah, she’ll be my girlfriend 100 per cent.”

It appears the couple’s date night at Shoreditch’s popular Italian restaurant, Gloria Trattoria, is what finally sealed the deal, though.

Hours before she declared Tom was her boyfriend, Samie was pictured in the fancy London eatery with her man while clutching a cocktail.

She captioned the snap: “My favourite place with my favourite person❤.”

Samie then revealed their ‘official’ status to her army of social media followers as they made their way home.

Meanwhile, Samie has since hit back at their Love Island co-star Casey O’Gorman, who took one look at the restaurant photo and called the couple “Shrek and Donkey”.
