BARNSLEY lad Tom Clare has returned to the Love Island villa less than a year after making it to the final of the ITV show.

The former Barnsley FC academy star fell short at the final hurdle of last year’s show after being in a couple with Samie Elishi from London.

He made his return to the TV screen on Tuesday night as a ‘bombshell’ for the All Stars season of the show - and will be looking to make his mark in South Africa.

Upon his return to the show he said: “I think my best feature is my height and I’ve got quite an athletic build.

“I’m a very positive person and I’m also very caring.

“I’ve got a strong thing that if someone has respect for me then I’ve got respect for them.”

Tom’s first date in the villa was with 25-year-old Georgia Steel who has had a previous ‘fling’ with former Leeds United football Tyler Roberts.
