However, when Simon asked if Tamara could come onto camera, Tom cheekily admitted: "I don't know if she has clothes on, so I don't really know if I can."

He continued: "We've been talking on and off for years. I slid into her DMs about coming to Australia about two years ago and we've been talking since.

"We wanted to be in Australia, but she said 'enough's enough', caught a flight and got over here and she's been here about six weeks now."

Tom shot to fame on Love Island in 2016 after coupling up with Sophie Gradon, who tragically died by suicide in June 2018.

When asked by Simon if he thinks he and Sophie could have worked out in another world, Tom said: "Yes, possibly.

"But we both became famous very quickly and had no time to see each other. We spoke to each other on FaceTime every week.

"We spoke to each other every week without fail and she would FaceTime me. She was the kindest soul I have ever met."
