LOVE Island star Samie Elish has taken a cryptic swipe at her ex Tom Clare.

The pair, who met on this year’s winter series of the ITV2 dating show, went their separate ways last month.

Samie has been keeping herself busy, attending events and filming content for Instagram and her YouTube channel.

The reality star recently filmed a video called ‘answering your dilemmas’ with her Love Island co-stars Tanya Manhenga and Claudia Fogarty.

One fan asked: “My boyfriend broke up with me about a year ago, I was sad and got over it and now he wants me back.”

Samie replied: “An ex is an ex for a reason – never go back.

“If you go back, you’re just going to end up breaking up again and again and again and again.”

Samie and Tom placed third on winter Love Island this year.

But Essex-based Samie and northern lad Tom struggled to make the romance work despite only just making things official.

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.”

After plenty of signs, some fans thought their split was on the cards for some time.

Shortly after the news hit, Tom took to Instagram to comment on the split.

Meanwhile Samie took to her YouTube channel to open up about why she “wasn’t in the right head space” to talk about the break-up on social media.

Samie has been dealing with some health concerns – a lump that viewers pointed out to her, as well as her friends and family while she was on our screens.

The former estate agent co-ordinator decided to go get it checked and has had ongoing tests, a biopsy and it was given a grade three by doctors.
