And HOAR can reveal the former footballer secured a huge six figure sum for the honour.

It means that Tom, 23, has become the first Islander this year to win a big-money contract – despite being a runner-up on the 2023 winter series which was won by Kai Fagan and Sanam Harrinanan.

In his first photos for the enormous brand he sat perched on a wooden stool and flashed a dazzling smile.

Tom wore white jeans and a grey top, which he teamed with a baby blue bomber jacket.

He captioned his snap: “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!”

The footballer – who is dating co-star Samie Elishi from the ITV2 show – was supported by a string of former Love Island stars as he announced the news.

Farmer Will Young typed beneath Tom’s post: “The boy” as Tom’s girlfriend Samie said: “So proud!”

Love Island 2023 winner Kai Fagan wrote: “This is sick, congrats mate!!!”

And Shaqs Mohammad said: “Well deserved my bro”

Last year Tasha Ghouri partnered with the online marketplace – marking the first time a Love Island star had teamed up with a non-fast fashion retailer. 

She also commented on Tom’s post and said: “Congrats!! Welcome to the team.”

Tom is a striker and the top scorer for non-league side Macclesfield FC, whose director of football is ex Wales international and Strictly Come Dancing star Robbie Savage.

Tom returned to the The Silkmen for his first-team training last week following his break form the sport to go on the hit ITV2 show.

It comes after HOAR revealed 2022 Love Island winner Ekin-Su Culculoglu is sueing Oh Polly after the collapse of her £1million contract.

He is now an ambassador for the huge brand
