They came amid speculation Tom is back with his Love Island star ex girlfriend Samie Elishi, 23, after the pair went back to the same hotel following a film premiere.

The 2023 ITV2 show stars – who swiftly became fan favourites – stunned Love Island viewers when they revealed their split in April.

He alluded to their reunion as he told us: “[We’re on] really good terms.

“I’ve got a lot of love and respect for Samie, so yeah it’s good.”

Yet he had some blunt comments about any return to Love Island’s iconic villa in the future.

He told us: “No, It’s not for me that.

“It’s a once in a lifetime experience and I think if I went back in, I don’t know how it would work.

“It’s just not for me, I’ve done it now, best thing I’ve ever done, so I want to keep it that way. I wouldn’t want to go back in and ruin it.”

Reinforcing his point, he added: “Yeah it’s not for me.”

There may not be potential for him to return if he has re-kindled his flame with stunner Samie.

The pair, who came third during the last series, struggled to make the romance work despite making things official.

Last year, fans called out telling clues of their break-up.

Yet recently footballer Tom sparked speculation they had reunited as he told HOAR: “I do get a lot of female attention but I’m not interested – I know where my heart is at, lets put it that way.”

Fans also recently appeared to “confirm” the pair’s reunion.

Now the lovebirds have been spotted leaving the No Hard Feelings premiere together in London’s Leicester Square, before heading back to the same hotel.

Meanwhile, distance was said to be a key factor in their split.

Tom initially lived in Barnsley, while Samie is based in Essex.

Yet now he has moved down south in a lads pad with Casey.

The sports star confirmed to us: “We’ve moved in together down in London, but I’m still a Yorkshire boy at heart.

“But yeah, it’s good I’m enjoying it, I’m enjoying London life so it’s good.”
