Love Islanders Tom Clare and Samie Elishi have confirmed they are officially in a relationship after a romantic date night led to an announcement.
After leaving the Love Island villa in third place the pair said they would look at making their relationship official after spending some quality time together on the outside.
On Tuesday evening Tom, 23 and Samie, 22 dined at an Italian restaurant called Gloria Trattoria in London's Shoreditch during a cosy and intimate date.
The evening seemed to have gone very well as shortly after the pair confirmed they were in a relationship.
Samie shared the exciting news as she posted an Instagram video of Tom dancing in the back of a taxi after their night out with the caption "This is my BOYFRIEND everyone".
She also shared a glamorous photo of them both at dinner with the caption: "My favourite place with my favourite person".
Samie looked gorgeous in a black halter neck cut out dress which showed off her slim figure and tanned skin following weeks in the South African sun.
She completed the look with a full face of make-up and straightened brunette locks in a middle parting, while Tom took the classic approach in a white All Saints t-shirt and blue jeans.
In videos sharing glimpses into their date night, a cheese wheel pasta arrived at the table ready to dish up the restaurant speciality that is prepared and served in front of you.
Samie reposted the video on her own Instagram story with the caption "My fav".
The date comes after footballer Tom took Samie to his club Macclesfield FC, where he plays as a forward – he was granted special permission to temporarily leave mid-season to go on Love Island.
They shared snaps of the day as Tom took them on a tour around the grounds with them later posing for a sweet photo togethering with Samie saying how much she’d loved seeing her beau at his day job.
Sharing a photo of the couple smiling sweetly together in the stands, Samie wrote: “Such a good day seeing this one in his natural habitat. Thank you to all the lads for welcoming me! I loved being part of the team for the day. Catch me in the stands for the foreseeable”
The pair were announced as third place winners of Winter 2023 Love Island, behind runners-up Ron Hall and Lana Jenkins and show winners Kai Fagan and Sanam Harrinanan.
The Love Islanders returned home earlier this month and were reunited with their loved ones.
Tom and Samie were greeted by friends and family at the airport and were later given a surprise party in celebration of their return and Love Island experience.
The party included their initials in big white light-up letters and gold and black balloons decorated the venue with both their loved ones there ready to celebrate their return.
